Things that suck:
Opening a box of coffee stirrers and dropping the entire box on the floor.
Aging. Aging gracefully is a farce. There is nothing graceful about a body breaking down and working against you.
Biting into a chocolate chip cookie and finding raisins.
Calling it a “Lifestyle Change” when they really mean “severe deprivation of everything that brings you life”.

We’ve ceased viewing one another as humans and have begun identifying people by political party. Like, when the hell did that happen? I didn’t ask for this. For the record, I only identify as human. No party represents me. And this should apply to everyone.
Waking up at 4 AM for no reason. Really, what the hell is wrong with my sleep cycle?! Is this an age thing? Is it the witching hour? Am I being haunted? Do older people get less sleep? Is this why my body is deteriorating? Because I would love to get more sleep and repair shit.

When my kids don’t get along. My kids are eight years apart. They ought to be Kumbaya-ing and shit. And yet they are not. It’s a like booby trap spy vs spy in my house. All.The.Time.
A slow metabolism. ‘nuff said.
Do you know what doesn’t suck? This Vanilla Bean Pound Cake with Chocolate Chips.
Flow with me, let’s talk about this.
Pound cake. This pound cake has two sticks of butter and a full block of full-fat cream cheese in it. Yep. It does. Vanilla bean flecks. I use vanilla bean paste. I’m way too lazy to scrape a vanilla bean.

The plan was to bake a pound cake. I wanted chocolate. I thought maybe a glaze. Again… Too lazy. Chocolate chips sounded like the perfect compromise. Not too many. Enough for a chip in every bite without overpowering that buttery pound cake.
And this pound cake is so, so buttery.
I baked it in small loaf pans. For sharing. You can be selfish and bake it in a much larger pan. Wrap it up. Hide it. Keep it for yourself.
That doesn’t suck.
