I went into my bomb shelter – where I keep my pots and pans and mixing bowls. I’m making vanilla cake muffins with pineapple. I looked at the stack. The white or the yellow bowl? Definitely the yellow. I took the white one to the table and began mixing the cake.

All done. I made 24 little muffins, each with a bit of pineapple in it, and put them into the oven. When they are finished, I’ll continue making more. Maybe I’ll make brownies. Good idea. Well, the white bowl still has batter in it, so I got the yellow one. This time, I got it right.

I went to add eggs to the mix. There’s already an egg in the cup. That means that instead of adding 6 eggs to the white cake, I added only 5 and left one egg in the cup.

I don’t know if I should laugh or cry about it. No, crying would be dumb. I have so much more I could cry about. This morning as I attempted to bake cakes in the wrong bowls and with too few eggs:

  • two rockets landed near Sderot
  • seven rockets landed in Ashkelon, wounding at least one woman
  • a rocket hit near the city of Netivot and people are being treated for shock
  • two other rockets landed near Sha’ar HaNegev – one hitting near a large school

And it is only 10:20 in the morning…and I don’t know if those rockets are flying over Elie’s head.
