The Muffin Fight
And it all happened in less than 90 seconds.
Brady and I like Costco muffins (but then, who doesn’t?). We also like to package them individually and freeze them so they’re easily accessible and stay fresh longer.
But packaging a dozen oversized Costco muffins in individual zip-loc bags can be tedious. Unless you get creative.
This weekend, Brady challenged me to a game of speed-bagging muffins. The person who could bag six muffins the fastest, wins. Not one to shy away from a good competition, I accepted, fully knowing that I had a better strategy.
We set out our zip-loc bags and prepared our muffins for packaging.
And then we started the timer.
I pulled out with an early lead, because I deliberately kept my fingers off the sticky muffin tops so as not to make my fingers slippery when I zipped the bags shut. As Brady complained about his fingers getting slimed with blueberries…I gained a one-muffin lead.
I stayed ahead for almost the whole time, until I grabbed my last muffin. Brady started shoving me and pushing the muffin away from my bag, as he worked to secure his final muffin. When I was finally able to break free of the harrassment, I tried desperately to zip my bag shut.
But alas, Brady claimed the victory. With only milliseconds to spare.
Next time we do this…there’s going to be a No-Interference rule.
