It's the Economy, Stupid.
The one shining moment in Hell was that yesterday an old man came up to the counter to tell me I was 'absolutely gorgeous'. Clearly the quality of his eyesight needs to be called into question, but I'll take it. So I gave him a free cupcake. Pathetic, eh?
I confess I've been spending time watching a lot of the Judge shows when I come home from work at 2 (2!). But I don't drink wine until at least 6. That's four hours to bite my nails and pray that people will stop making box cupcake mix and just buy 'em already. Who has time to bake?!
I heard on the BBC the other night that the itinerant Mexican workers are leaving the U.S. to go back to Mexico because there's no work.
The one saving grace is that we got a very nice cushy order for a Tiffany's themed sorority party in January (blue-green cupcakes with white bow). Will bite nails until then.
