One Friday afternoon I decided to make chocolate muffins. The plan was to deliver them to this certain individual that I liked. We had gone out a couple times. At least once, if I don't recall correctly.
Anyway, after baking the tasty morsels, I put them in a rather nice tupperware thing and skipped over to her house. It was quite the walk out of my way, but thought the gesture was worth it.
She wasn't home when I got there, but I made enough for her roommates so I left them with the person who opened the door. I hoped they would save one for my friend.
I was expecting a thank you note of sorts. A text message, a phone call, or something. I started to wonder if she even got the message the muffins were from me.
By Saturday evening I started to believe she was planning to return the favor or wanted to thank me in person at church on Sunday. Maybe she was making cookies and would return the container full of them.
Early the next morning I ran into her at church . She was setting up chairs. I needed no motivation to help. After about 15 minutes of pleasant conversation, I was dying to know it she got the muffins.
“Did your roommates leave you a muffin?” I finally asked.
“Yes,” she complained. “They were so rich.”
Sorry I made them, I thought. Can I get the tupperware back?
