hey, cupcake

i have come to the conclusion that i am a sucker for a man who is passionate about his hair care products. or is passionate about cupcakes. here's the thing: PASSION. even if it's something as seemingly trivial as the shampoo you put in your hair (hey man, at least you shower).

because passion transcends, and translates into every other part of your life. you get where i'm going with this...

some guys are passionate about sports. that's fine. it's just typical. i was having a conversation about sports with a male yesterday, when i came to the hysterical realization that i knew more about the topic than he did. i mean, you lose the playoffs you're out. no Superbowl for you. i thought this was common knowledge. but HE asked ME that question. and i knew the answer. i am far more intrigued with men who have more to offer to a conversation than their fantasy football team's stats.

anyway, i digress... this same male, a few weeks back whilst in the midst of a chill sesh, joined his sister in an HEATED argument as to why i had to get this certain type of hair care line they were using. it wasn't so much of an argument, since there was no arguing, as them persuading me that this was the best shit EVER for hair.

one may wonder why i was so into a guy...a STRAIGHT male...who was so passionate about his hair care. but that's just it. he was passionate. which means if he can get passionate about something as mundane as shampoo...

yesterday i was chilling with a friend, when we got to talking about some cupcakes we were looking forward to grinding. whist we were munching away ever so heavenly, her boyfriend came home. he took one bite of the cupcake, which was probably a day or so old at this point, and went on a RAMPAGE about the quality of the cupcakes we were eating.

now, it may or may not matter to the story that the cupcakes are from the bakery my friend and i work at. we don't make the cupcakes, only sell them. however, the woman who does make the cupcakes is a world-renown pastry chef and therefore the pastries, i.e. cupcakes, are relatively high priced. not that they are not high-quality cupcakes, but these were high-quality + day old so not exactly at their peak of performance any longer.

anyway, my friend, i sense, has the same idea about passionate people as i do, whether she knows it or not. she, herself, is a passionate person, which is why i think we are friends as well.

passion is transcendent. it is important. and sometimes it's the only thing left but if you have PASSION...honey.

consider yourself lucky. x
