“I can’t believe you just ate it, Sheldon!” Betty sighed on the other end of the phone line.

“What else does one do with cupcakes?”

“Never mind. Did you at least look at the clue?”


“On the icing. I drew it on with icing.”

“Betty, you can’t even draw with a pencil. Look, it was on my table on top of my notes, I thought you left me a sweet birthday surprise.”

“It was a surprise. A treasure hunt surprise.”

“By the way it was a tad too sweet.”

“You are literally clueless.”

“Wha – hello? Betty, you there? Hello?”

I’ve joined in a bit late this week. But better late than never.

I’m in the middle of a glorious drug withdrawal. Prescription drugs. All legal – but no less debilitating than if I was a recovering heroin junkie. On the bright side, it means autoimmune disease is under control with less medication.

Back on the dark side, it means my sarcasm is at dangerously high levels.

  1. That’s a really inventive take on the prompt. The line “Betty, you can’t even draw with a pencil.” had me snorting with laughter at poor Sheldon’s cluelessness. I wonder where the treasure hunt led and what the prize was? Betty sounds furious!
    I’m glad your auto-immune disease is under control with less medicine; you have my sympathy for your withdrawal symptoms – horrid for you.

    1. She had put in a lot of effort. Perhaps she was planning to propose as Rochell has suggested, or a romantic evening out. Life never goes the way we planned, so let’s take it as it comes. Thank you, for your sympathy – I could do well with it right now.
