Her Loss. Cream Filling's Awesome.

Story Submitted by Vince:

Arianna and I were in a pastry shop and I bought us two cupcakes.  I picked out a chocolate-cream-filled sprinkled one, and she picked out a vanilla cream-filled choco-vanilla one.  We sat down and she took a bite out of hers, only to spit it out all over the table.

"Look!" she said, hoisting the offending dessert up to my face, "Look!"

There was a vanilla cream filling.  I said, "There's a vanilla cream filling."

"There's a vanilla cream filling!" she repeated, then stood up and brought it over to the clerk behind the register.  She held it up to the clerk and said, "There's a vanilla cream filling."

The clerk said, "Yes.  Our vanilla cream-filled choco-vanilla cupcakes have a vanilla cream filling.  Is it no good?"

Arianna said, "I hate vanilla cream fillings.  They're too sweet.  It didn't say 'vanilla cream-filled' anywhere."

The clerk pointed to the little sign in the pastry display case next to a collection of similar cupcakes that read, Vanilla cream-filled choco-vanilla cupcakes.  Arianna said, "This cupcake blows.  I hate vanilla cream filling."

I called over to her, "I'll eat it.  We can switch."

She said, "Fine," and she sat back down with me and switched cupcakes.

A moment later, she spat out a bite of her new cupcake.  "Christ!" she said, "More cream filling!"

I said, "Yeah.  It's a chocolate-cream-filled sprinkle cupcake."

She said, "Why did you give it to me?  You know I hate cream filling!"

"You said you hated vanilla cream filling."

"No!  I hate all cream fillings!"


"God damn it!"  She trembled and I seriously thought that she was going to have some sort of medical crisis.

I said, "I'll finish it, if you want.  I can buy you a cupcake without any type of cream filling at all, if you want."

"No," she said, "The day's ruined."  She folded her arms and wouldn't look at me anymore.  I finished up both cupcakes, we walked out together, said our goodbyes, and away she stomped.
