I went to my local cupcake shop, Charmed Cupcakes, to buy some for the office birthday party tomorrow.
“I would like to get 3 cupcakes, please. And can you please put them in one box?”
“Actually, I can’t.”
“I can’t put 3 cupcakes in one box. But I can do two of them in one and one of them by itself.”
Odd. I’ve gotten cake in bigger boxes before. “Oh, I guess that’s okay. Now, I would like 4 more cupcakes, please.”
“Do you want them in one box?”
“Can you do that?”
She put 4 cupcakes–eventually 5 cupcakes because it was buy 3 get one free promotion–in one BIG box.
However, 3 cupcakes don’t qualify to go in ONE big box.
Thank god the cupcakes are really good here.
