Triple Negatives

We made Cake Pops.  Which is to say we made a mess.

There must be a better way to do it.  The directions said to add ‘half the packet’ of icing, but in my love for icing, I just added the whole packet.  This may have added to the mud-like consistency.  I may have found the error, though I resist any inkling of less frosting anywhere.

My little readers read the box aloud to me.  “It says, ‘Who doesn’t love cake on a stick?'”

“I do.”

“No, Mommy.  It said ‘who doesn’t.'”

“And I agree.  I do.  I do love cake on a stick.”

“Mommy, the word is doesn’t.  Who doesn’t.”

“I understand the question.”

“But you keep saying that you do.  They want to know who doesn’t.”

“Okay, then.  I guess… I… am not a person who doesn’t like cake on a stick.”

Glad we cleared that up.  Who doesn’t like cake on a stick?  I do.  Or I doesn’t do.

I don’t know.  Whatever.  They’re tasty (albeit not pretty), with frosting and sprinkles.  That’s all I can say for sure.

  1. Cute! Negatives have always (well sometimes) confused me especially so in second languages.
    Now I want a cake pop! 😉

  2. Did he expect you to list everyone else in the world who is an exception? Like, “Well, Great-Uncle Kevin doesn’t and your 1-year old cousin Amanda has never tried them so she might not like them and there are 300,000 people in China who don’t care for them at all”? Hmm, big order.
