If You Give a Girl a Scone...

She's going to ask for a glass of Belgian-style beer.

When you give her the beer, she'll probably ask for the To Do List for her parents' belated Anniversary shindig this Saturday.

When she's finished going over over it, she'll ask for a pen.

Then she will want to look on the internet to obsessively research the ideas she's jotted down.

When she looks on the internet, she might notice that she has one new email in her Inbox.  Most likely DSW spam.

When she's finished checking her email, she'll want to see if anything new has been posted on PW, Bakerella or My So-Called Knife.  She might get carried away and check every blog on her Blogger dashboard.  She may even check her Facebook page as well!

When she's done, she'll probably want to take a nap.  You will have to fix a refrigerator-sized box for her with a blanket and a Tempurpedic pillow.  She'll crawl in, make herself comfortable and unsuccessfully try to fluff the memory foam pillow.

She'll probably ask you to read her an article.  So you'll read her one from the new issue of Bon Appetit and she'll ask to see the pictures.  When she looks at the pictures, she'll get so excited she'll want to bake something of her own.  She'll ask for a bowl and measuring spoons.

She'll make some dough.  When the dough is rolled out and cut into triangles, she'll want to bake the treats.

Then she'll want to transfer the triangular treats to a cooling rack.  Which means she will need a spatula.

She'll rummage through the drawer to find the spatula and see the bottle opener Berry White bought from the Dollar Store as a last minute addition to our camping tote.  Looking at the bottle opener will remind her that she's thirsty so she'll ask for a glass of Belgian-style beer.

And chances are, if she asks for a glass of Belgian-style beer...

...she's going to want a scone to go with it.

The End.
