Dessert at the Cranky’s

Dessert at the Cranky’s
Mrs. Cranky and I had dinner tonight from Boston Market.  We both love a half chicken, mashed potatoes, corn and their corn muffins.  Mrs. C did the pick-up run.

“Don’t get a dessert, you always get their brownies and I’m fat enough!”


Mrs. C had to first pick up the step-crank and drop him off where his car had been serviced.  He works at “The Cheesecake Factory.”


After dinner our conversation went like this:

“I have a surprise; do you want it now or later?”

“What is it?”


“I said no dessert.”

“OK, if you don’t want it.”

“What did you get?”

(Keep in mind now, it turns out she brought home cheesecake.)

“What did you get?”

“I left it out.”

(Please take note she could have said, “Cheesecake” but instead chose to say, “I.  Left.  It.   Out.”)

“What is it?”

 “It’s in the bag.”

(Still, can you just say “Cheesecake?”)

“What bag?”

“On the counter, do you ever notice anything?”

(Mrs. C, aka Sherlock, of courses never misses anything new in the house.)

“Which counter?”

“Holy crap! By the refrigerator.”

(Still, can you just say “Cheesecake?”)

“The bag that says “The Cheesecake Factory?”


“What’s in it, why do I have to get up and look, why can’t you just friggin tell me what you got for dessert that I don’t need because I’m fat?”


“Just tell me.  Never mind...

I’ll get up...

walk over...

and look for myself…


“Imagine that. Jerk!”

“Like it would have been so hard to just say, ‘Cheesecake’?”

“Maybe if you would pull your head out of your ass you wouldn’t even have to ask!”

“Mmmm; I love cheesecake!”


  1. Now I am wanting cheesecake for breakfast.

  2. The nearest Cheesecake Factory is two hours from here. I see it more often on Big Bang. Penny works there. :-) :-)

  3. well, those few steps of exercise did you good, now didn't they?! :)

  4. “Imagine that. Jerk!” Bwahahahahahahahaha. I love your conversations.

    Hubby makes awesome cheesecake. I'm just saying.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  5. How could you possibly say "no dessert". And it wasn't brownies.

  6. I'm not sure of the significance of this but here I tend to think my conversational style and sense of humorous entitlement is more akin to Mrs. Cranky's. Maybe that what gets me reprimanded so often.....:(

  7. At our house we would have spent more time eating that cheesecake than arguing about it. But things aren't always smooth here at Casa de Chatterbox. Mrs. C. just went to work angry because she'd asked me for the forth time if I was going to do something today. I commented that she'd already asked, and off to work she went, mad. I could use a slice of cheesecake right now!

  8. I'm sorry.. I missed everything about this post but CHEESECAKE! And what a bonus, a kid that works at the Cheesecake Factory??? Omg, you'd need a tow truck to get me outta' the house!

  9. You don't need that piece of cheesecake.
    I need that piece of cheesecake.
    Please mail it to me.
    Overnight, if you would, please.

  10. I can't see that it would matter if she didn't tell you what it was. After all, you didn't want dessert anyway...

  11. Now she could have said cheesecake, she could have served, it but look how many calories you worked off through agitation plus having to fetch it. She loves you.

  12. If your cheesecake looked anything like that cheesecake pictured at the top of this post . . . you were a lucky man.

  13. Mmmmm, cheesecake. Or as we call it, advanced therapy.

  14. That would be deadly to have a family member work at the Cheesecake Factory. Here they have the calories listed by the cheesecakes on the menu (all foods here have to have how many calories either on the menus or somewhere where people can look at it if the want to know how much they are eating). It kind of takes the fun away from eating a piece knowing how many calories you are eating, but they sure are delicious!


  15. I'm with you on this one, how hard is it for her to just say cheesecake?
    On the other hand, you could have noticed the bag and said Ooh! Cheesecake!
    I love cheesecake.

  16. Mmmm....I haven't had cheesecake in ages. I should have your problem! ;)
