Easy Going Down I

Easy Going Down

I can't tell you how excited I am to discover via Susan's site at EasyBakeOven. that Easy Bake version 2 is now out. Makes me remember version one with fond memories.

My daughter, Holli and a friend conspired to pull a fast one on unsuspecting daddy. They patted out some giggly pink-brown cookie-shaped patties of PlayDough and baked them in the Easy Bake, with a plot in mind.

Reading in my LazyBoy, I looked up as the girls came tumbling into the room, falling over themselves to offer me the 'cookies'. You could tell they were about to pee their pants, so I milked it out to prolong the suspense. "Hmmmm! These look really good! Did you girls bake them yourselves? Maybe I should save this for later".

"No daddy, go ahead and eat them now" they chortled, barely able to contain their conspiratorial glee.

I got up from the LazyBoy and fetched a glass of milk from the refrigerator, and came back to nestle into a comfortable cookie-eating position.

I took up the whole mess of cookies and held them greedily, commending the girls on their efforts and telling them "I'm so hungry I think I could eat every one of these right now!" knowing they expected me to realize they were not REAL cookies and end the game soon.

I took the first cookie, stuffed in my mouth, chewed heartily, and swallowed.

The horror! The horror! Their eyeballs bulged as they looked at each other in disbelief.

"Daddy, those were not real cookies! They were PlayDough! Don't eat them!!! Spit it out!!"

The guilt of a trick too well pulled off came over them. I burped, then began to shake, bug-eyed, staring blankly into the distance. There was a pregnant moment there when they were not sure if I was about to croak, or was just jerking them around, as I had been known to do on more than one occasion in their short past. I never did tell them that I almost yakked in getting the dang thing down; but I was determined to show them that the tricked can become the tricker.

My daughter is a mother now, but she has never forgotten this little prank. When it comes her turn soon, do you think she will eat the cookie from the EasyBake?
