Fifth column

I decided to make frosting for a batch of mini cupcakes that have been sitting in the fridge, and thought lavender would be a nice change from our usual pink or light blue (for some reason I only have red and blue food coloring). I mixed the frosting (while Bella hid; she hates the sound of hairdryers, vacuum cleaners, or mixers, luckily all things that don't get a lot of use in my house) and plopped it on the muffins, then put Bella to work on sprinkle application. Our new nanny, Yaya Cely, came in about halfway, took one look at my cupcakes, and says, "Why are you making gray cupcakes?"

I guess it's funnier if you've met her.
