Tree-Hugger's Trap

Tree-Hugger recently bought a cloth shower curtain liner to replace our clear plastic one, which was looking a bit grungy. I asked if I could steam it before it was put up (a habit I picked up at the good old BB&B), and she agreed. After I steamed and hung the cloth liner, I didn't know what to do with the old plastic one. I eventually spread it out in the kitchen and left a note on it that said "Need a tarp for anything?" When I got home from work the plastic liner was gone, and I assumed that was that.

The next morning, however, when I went downstairs, the plastic liner was again on the floor. This time there were Reese's Peanut Butter Cups on top of it--four in a zig-zagging sort of row leading to another four forming a pyramid in the center. If you know anything about me, you will know that I think Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (regular size--not mini) are God's most perfect edible creation, so let's just say I was delighted.

I picked the top peanut butter cup off the pyramid and ate it. Delicious. As I reached down to remove another morsel of bliss from the pile, I discovered a note underneath. I moved the other peanut butter cups aside to see what it said:

"If you're reading this, you fell for my trap! Ha ha!"

I started laughing. The peanut butter cups were in a trail, like you see in movies. I hadn't quite noticed that detail, and of course hadn't eaten them in order, but it was hilarious nonetheless. I love Tree-Hugger's creativity--that is something I never would have thought of doing. It kept me laughing the rest of the day.

P.S. I am not disclosing how many peanut butter cups I ate and in how short a period of time, so don't ask.
