- How About A Cupcake Shop?
My friend, Destiny, and I wanted to open up a cupcake bakery. It all started one afternoon sometime a few months ago...
"Here, I'll go get us some water," Destiny had said, as we sat down in the middle of a Starbucks. I let her go, and pulled out my phone to check if there were texts. There weren't. Destiny came back, a cup of water in each hand. We both sat there and drank our water, talking about how we loved the way coffee shops were.
"We should open up our own," I said. "And make it just the way we like it." I could already picture it in my head, Chinese lanterns hanging from the ceiling, cozy couches and small wood tables...
Somehow, we got discussing how the drinks were all so weird, and we could never master everyone's favorite. But what if we had a bakery? With cupcakes! That's how the idea was born.
We walked back to her house, talking about the kinds of cupcakes we'd have and the ways we'd decorate the place. Every building for leasing caught our attention. We wanted to talk about it forever and ever until it was so real that it would actually happen.
But the idea faded away, and I really wish it hadn't.
