Gingerbread Man and Woman

Pablo and his sister Paula were watching the recipe of gingerbread on Kid TV. Paula asked excitedly “Can we make gingerbread?” Pablo instantly agreed and they ran to the kitchen.  They started sifting the flour, crushing ginger, beating eggs and rolling the dough. However, the dough was too slimy and not taking the shape of gingerbread properly. Paula suddenly suggested “let’s coat my teddies with the dough and microwave”. Pablo agreed. They also added Paula’s doll as gingerbread woman. When mom returned, she found three charred toys in front of the microwave and two guilty kids standing with hung heads.

    Sounds like something I would have done as a child if microwaves had been around. Tried to make toasted cheese in the toaster when I was a toddler, once. Mom got a new toaster, I don’t remember what happened to me, but there were a lot of tears and belts involved.

      I guess we all would have done this had microwave been around…I once gave bath to my teddy bear in such a way that it stayed wet for almost a week…thanks for visiting and commenting

      Yes, when I saw the prompt the first thing that came to my mind was a very grim and sad story…but I consciously wanted to turn it around and make it a fun stuff…that is how I wrote this story…I am so glad you enjoyed…
