271. Baking Bad

Due to a frightening case of culinary arson, TMTF will be taking a two-week break.

My typewriter monkeys decided yesterday to bake muffins. Ignoring my dad’s useful muffin-making tips, they cranked up the oven to its hottest setting, threw in the muffins and forgot about them. My brother and I got home from church to find smoke pouring out of the windows and flames dancing merrily on the roof.

Baking Bad

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire… or muffins, in this case.

My monkeys have been known to play with fire now and then, so this latest incident is no surprise. What has astonished me this time is that my monkeys have fled to Canada, either to evade arrest for arson or else to escape my righteous fury. They sent me an email last night promising to return before the end of the month.

Since I can’t maintain this blog without my typewriter monkeys, I must put it on hold for a couple of weeks. TMTF will be back on May 26. I sure hope my monkeys have returned by then.

In the meantime, I had better start cleaning up my apartment. It’s looking a bit… ashen.

We’ll be back on Monday, May 26. Thanks for reading!
