As fall is approaching I find myself craving pumpkin based desserts but honestly I’m a little sick and tired of pumpkin pie, how many years in a row can you eat that stuff before it gets boring? I’d been wanting a pumpkin roll where you make a thin pumpkin sheet cake and roll it into a log with cream cheese in the middle. I love those but my mom hates them so she refused to make me one and she won’t let me make one because she won’t let anyone cook in her kitchen but her (she has protective kitchen syndrome).
So here I am (past week or so) thinking who do I have to kill to get a pumpkin roll in this house? My parents went to the Amish country to stock up on bulk spices, oats, etc. and the store was having a special. Spend $40 or more and get a free home baked pumpkin roll. Lucky for me! And it was all mine since I’m the only one in this house that actually likes them… or so I thought.
I’m sitting here reading an e-book and enjoying a piece and I suddenly feel like I’m not alone. I take my focus away from my book and realize that King Paimon is practically lingering over top of me and I hear “I want a piece of that cake”. It almost seemed like he wanted it for the actual taste and not just the energy, as eager as his voice sounded. I was like you want a piece? and I hear “Yes, you can consider it a gift for all the help I have given you.”
So I was like, he wants an offering ‘just because’ but okay I can do that because he has been very helpful. But then I said, pumpkin rolls are one of my favorite desserts and he says “Yes, I know.” I tend to get greedy with my favorite desserts when other humans are involved because this house is full of people with major sweet tooth issues. No, I’m not a fat disgusting American pig LOL, I just never get any dessert around here unless I keep a private selection hidden away from the sugar thirsty dessert vampires in this house.
And apparently King Paimon realizes this and thought it would be a good way to test my loyalty by asking me if he could have a piece of my favorite dessert that I rarely get ahold of. I agreed. I will be leaving him some on a plate this afternoon when my parents go back to church. If I go get him some right now, my mom will think I’m eating a 2nd piece and jump all over me for being gluttonous. She’s real weight conscious and judgmental so she’d probably say “don’t act like a fat person and eat two pieces, that’s gross and uncalled for.”
I am laughing about all of this. The way he asked for the cake was almost hilarious, like saying you are greedy with your desserts when it comes to other humans but I’ll be damned if you’re going to do me that way.
