*PLEASE NOTE: THIS POST IS EXTREMELY IMAGE HEAVY. SORRY FOR THE SLOWNESS*
Frank and Lisa looked at me with excited expectation.
Frank: SO!!! How do you like it?
Lisa: Tell us! Tell us!
Carol: Oh my gosh…the gingerbread is perfect. I love it! *nom* *nom* *nom* Yum. Now I’ll bite into the stained glass part.
Lisa: I can’t wait to hear what she thinks!
Frank looked at me eagerly.
Carol: Uh…oh…um…I’m not sure how to say this…
Carol: The stained glass part tastes…like cough candies. Really. That red cherry flavour tastes medicine-y. I’m sorry.
Frank just looked at me. Stunned.
Carol: BUT, I know someone who would just LOVE this flavour. My husband, Mike, really loves cough drops and he loves those awful “energy drinks” – Like Rock Star (blech) that remind me of cough syrup. I think HE may like these, so they won’t go to waste. I’m sorry, Frank. We can’t possibly give these to Santa.
Frank continued to look at me. Still stunned.
Carol: Hey Mike! Come over here and try these gingerbread cookies! I think you’ll like them! They taste like cough candies!
Mike: Cough candy cookies? I’ll be right there!
2 minutes later, Mike had tested the cookies:
Mike: Wait, Frank…the gingerbread was terrific! I just don’t like the weird sticky stuff in my teeth. Frank, please…don’t be upset…there’s still time to sort this out.
Frank: You’re right. We’ll try again…wait, what is that?? Did you hear that?
Mike: Oh God, NOOOOO!
Carol: What the??? HELP US! It’s a Donnersaurus Rex! He’s destroying the bakery! He’s ruining everything!
Frank: Save our souls!
Lots of crashing and screaming ensues…and then…out of the Lego rubble…Frank appeared…
