Navigating life with a teenager….who happens to have bipolar disorder

As I said yesterday….I am going to be prompting it for a few days this week.  Here is the prompt I decided to go with today.

I’m unable to blog today because I fight space aliens with my amazingly awesome ninja skills. How do you keep the space aliens at bay?

Although I have many ninja skills….my most significant is being a cake ninja.  When space aliens attack, I will lure them with the temptation of layers upon layers of cake and icing. They will use their keen sense of smell to be drawn into my kitchen.  I will offer them options, chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, carrot. They will not know what to do with all of the options, it will confuse them.

Their confusion will give me the opportunity to serve them up a slice that will delight their senses and make them forget that they came here seeking intelligent life.  They will only want cake.  I will send them away with a recipe for homemade chocolate buttercream to take back to their planet.  It will take them years to perfect it. At the end of that time, they will no longer want power….they will only want sweets.

Hmmmmm……I wonder if that would work on the power-hungry human population?  Maybe we don’t have world peace because angry children get sent to bed without dessert. Maybe we should have always let them eat cake.
