If Hannibal Lechter and Martha Stewart Were Tapering (Their Conversation Would Probably Look Like This)

by Carilyn on May 2, 2013

Conversation this morning with my running buddy, Alicia (and she said I could blog about it because she knows y’all already think I’m the crazy one).

Alicia:  How’s the taper going?

Me:  Good. I haven’t killed anyone yet.

Alicia: That is good.

Me:  Although I did fantasize about running a woman off the road after she sped by me and then cut across two lanes of traffic just so she could beat one other car.

Alicia: But you only fantasized about running her off the road, right?

Me: Of course! We weren’t anywhere near a cliff or bridge.

Alicia: Oooooookay… But don’t worry about it, I’ve fantasized about that kind of thing even when I’m not tapering.

Me: Do you ever fantasize about breaking into a cupcake shop at night and licking the frosting off all the cupcakes?

Alicia: No.

Me: Me neither. That would be weird.

Happy Running!

Why would you lick all the frosting off of cupcakes? I think that the best part of the cupcake is the cake- I’d gladly ditch all the frosting and eat the cakes instead (:

I’m with you on the frosting – I would rather eat only frosting no cake!
Glad you’re keeping entertained while tapering!

I’d like to think cupcake shops start fresh every morning and keep no frosted ones overnight. Not that I’ve given it any thought. At all…

I would never lick the frosting off cupcakes. Why would I when I can just whip up a batch of the delicious, life-giving nectar in what ever flavour I was craving? That’d be crazy.

As soon as I saw the title I could not wait to read this. You always make me giggle. Happy Taper!!

I love it! Several of my fantasies involve cupcake shops –
Maybe I’m in a perpetual taper….yeah, that’s it….

I love the cake, too, Izzy! Yum! In fact, I could come up with fantasies that involved all cupcake parts! 🙂

I have to stay entertained, Kim so that my family doesn’t put me on a Greyhound and ship me to Alaska 🙂

Glad to know someone else is “not” obsessing about baked goods, Marcia 🙂

Carilyn May 3, 2013 at 8:17 am

I am so jealous of your baking talents, Char! I have to break in to cupcake shops to get my fix!

Carilyn May 3, 2013 at 8:18 am

Thank you, Kirstin!

I would be so dangerous if I was in a perpetual taper, Rhonda! In fact, Hubz has made me promise to never quit running 🙂
