It was the end of the line for the esteemed Saskatoon berry Muffin today. An hour ago I found myself blinking in disbelief at Niel, one of the Atlantis creatures who work behind the counter. He informed me that there will be no more Saskatoon berry muffins for a long time because Saskatoon berries are now out of season.
If I were a Druid, I might be inclined to erect Stonehenge just so I could predict the return of my beloved muffin by charting the course of the stars, the sun and the moon. I would have a special place at the centre of the giant structure, an esteemed place of prominence. It would remain empty until sometime next spring when, after so much toil and sacrifice, so long and cold a winter, that I may tepidly place a new muffin, a Saskatoon berry muffin, upon it’s special spot inside the muffin dedicated Stonehenge.
In the meantime, I plan to start a cult dedicated to the Lemon Poppyseed Muffin.
