81/365 Cupcakes

Today I was planning on baking cupcakes. I planned way ahead of time and brought everything I needed from home. I went out to the store this morning and bought the last few things.
The bake sale we were supposed to have got cancelled, mainly because of the threat on the school. So I didn't bake any cupcakes, but I'm still going to class tomorrow. Many people aren't, many people had their classes cancelled.
A shooting could happen any day, and you don't wake up with fear and let it inhibit your life everyday, do you? So why tomorrow?

YOU FORGOT TO MENTION THAT I SAVED EVERYTHING BY BRINGING TIN FOIL JEEZ.

just kidding. but yea, that was my threat attitude (my threattitude). i do understand that some people may have had legitimately traumatic experiences in the past that this triggered (i know some people who experienced school violence before or saw other crazy things) but mostly, people were just being kind of ridiculous.

EVERYONE, MY WONDERFUL SISTER, STEPH, BROUGHT ME SOME TIN FOIL. SHE SAVED THE DAY.

I understand it too, but all the people I know who freaked out hadn't actually suffered any trauma so I was not in a really sympathetic mood.

I loved reading your comment Taylor "you don't wake up with fear and let it inhibit your life..." so I started to post a comment and found my daughters' exchanged comments and became suddenly very proud of both of you for your threattitudes. (A neologism that works perfectly here, thanks Stephanie!)
