The Back Stories With Darnell and Cornelia - #10 EUNICE


EUNICE

Eunice loved performing at birthday parties for the little kids. They were always delighted with her performance and clapped like little maniacs. She hated the fact that she had only been allowed to perform at adult parties since that incident in 2015 outside of Chicago. 

Since that time, Eunice had made it through her probation, done her community service, and sought medical help. Her psychiatrist and her veterinarian had determined that Eunice could not tolerate the sugar in the cupcake she devoured at the end of her performance. In order for the show to go on, a sugar-free gluten-free recipe had been developed and Eunice was now performing to the high standards of the Association of Hula Hooping Holsteins of America.



Even so, no one had hired her for a child's party until today, and that was only because Paulette had gotten sick. Eunice sat patiently waiting for the excited children to quiet down so the lights could be dimmed and the curtain raised. 

Her candle headband was in place and her special giant cupcake was by her side. She glanced over at the frosting to see if the honoree was a boy or a girl. And she gasped.

Eunice could feel her udders shudder and her heart started banging around in her chest. Her bulging eyes locked on the target. You see, Eunice knew something that none of the specialists had ever suspected. It wasn't the sugar in the cupcake and the frosting that was her trigger, it was the cherry. And a cherry was only added to the top of the cupcake at a child’s party. 

As the curtain started to rise, Eunice's tongue slipped out between her lips.

What a brilliant image Cornelia, beautifully coloured. I swear Eunice's eyes are the exact eyes I make when someone takes ice cream out of the freezer!

Wonderful coloring of Eunice and I love the expression on her face. The cupcake sure looks yummy too!

Colored perfectly...Eunice is beautiful in her own skin. The stenciled background is ideal to show her off to the best advantage. And the details are fabulous.

Oh, no - the temptation - poor Eunice! Fun story and card.
