I shouldn’t be here right now. But it never fails. I keep coming back. I just can’t help myself. That sweet aroma yanks you right off the sidewalk and before you know it, you’re standing in line…. waiting.
Welcome to Paradise!
For anyone with the slightest sweet tooth, this place is truly magical. Cakes, cookies, and pies abound! There’s no limit to your imagination as you surround yourself with freshly baked goodness.
My absolute weakness? Cupcakes. Those tender little morsels are the perfect reminder to the sweeter side of life. So soft and moist. And the icing – whipped to fluffy perfection. Oh look! They added a few sprinkles today too. If Heaven had a taste, it was baked into this cupcake.
I closed my eyes and let out a deep sigh. Trying to muster up any will power to stick to my diet would prove to be meaningless. I had to have that cupcake. I needed it. My life depended on it.
A sly little smile crept across my face as I slowly opened my eyes. Without any guilt or reservation, I ordered my decadent piece of heaven with and a nice, steaming hot cup of coffee on the side.
I walked over to a cozy little table and sat down. The view out to the street seemed brighter today. The people on the sidewalk weren’t in a rush. The hustle and bustle of traffic slowed down. It’s as if the world decided to take a breath, relax, and enjoy the finer things in life.
I sat there in the back corner of the room, fully content with my decision. I nibbled on my cupcake, savored each and every bite, then washed it all down with a few sips of coffee. The steam melted away what little stress I had left.
“Tomorrow, I’ll do better”, I thought to myself. I’ll start my diet and stick to it. But for now, I’m going to sit here, indulge in my coffee and cupcake without a single care in the world.
