The line at Georgetown Cupcake

The anticipation builds as we wait and wait (for about 30 minutes) to buy our cupcakes.
It was totally worth the wait. I am skeptical about this cupcake craze. Scratch that, I was skeptical.
A store employee walked while we waited, giving us all updates on the status of cupcakes remaining. There was a bit of a murmur among the crowd when we learned only a few Red Velvets remained. I was a staunch supporter of the Key Lime cupcake. Kristen poo-pooed the flavor. I insisted it had to be popular. During one of these cupcake updates the employee said something like this:
Empoyee: There are only a few Red Velvets remaining. But if you want Key Lime we have plenty remaining.
Her: Oh, I'm glad you're excited, because there are a lot left!
Me: [internally] WHATEVER!
While in the line, we heard of a new business venture that will be started by the woman behind us. She didn't have a name for her new cupcake store, but let me just say this: Tuna Cupcakes. Mmm! On the plus side, the lines will be significantly shorter.
