Just had to tell you all this story....I thought it was hilarious (and maybe a little disturbing)! icon_lol.gif

I am making 8 sheet cakes in the church kitchen for our pastor's farewell reception. I had some cake scraps that I put into a container to leave for the church staff to nibble on (like I do for my family), but later decided that some of the staff can be a bit..hmm...nit-picky and neat freaks, so I thought better of it and dropped the container into the trash and left.

So yesterday I get this e-mail:

church staff: "when we came in this morning the whole church smelled wonderful! It is driving us crazy! Don't be surprised if you find a corner of one of the cakes missing. icon_smile.gif

me: "Sorry. Guess I should have saved you some cake tops." icon_smile.gif

church staff: "Ahhh....we need to practice the spiritual discipline of deprivation."

icon_lol.gif I laughed and thought that was the end of that. Later that night I get this e-mail:

church staff: "The cake you make for the pastor is delicious! Thank you for not dumping anything else on top of the cake scraps!" It was signed from "your dumpster-diving church staff".

icon_surprised.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif I laughed like crazy and yet was a little incredulous that they actually took it out of the trash!

Guess it's a compliment ... in a wierd way. icon_biggrin.gif
