If you give a mum a muffin.....

If you give a mum a muffin, She'll want a cup of coffee to go with it.
She'll pour herself some.
Her four year old will spill the coffee.
She'll wipe it up.
Wiping the floor, she'll find dirty socks.
She'll remember she has to do laundry.
When she puts the laundry in the washer,
She'll trip over boots and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan for dinner.
She will get out a pound of mince.
She'll look for her cookbook
("101 Things To Do With a Pound of Mince").
The cookbook is setting under a pile of mail.
She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow.
She will look for her checkbook.
The checkbook is in her bag that is being dumped out by her two-year-old.
She'll smell something funny.
She'll change the two-year-old's nappy.
While she is changing the nappy, the phone will ring.
Her four year old will answer and hang up.
She'll remember she wants to phone a friend for coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her that she was going to have a cup.
And chances are...If she has a cup of coffee,
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.
