It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, right? When I spotted these margarita cupcakes over at Annie’s Eats, I knew I had to make them (the tequila isn’t even cooked down!). However, making these turned into a much longer process than required, because in the middle of beating the egg whites, my neighbor spotted my 70 pound dog with a baby bird in his mouth. Not cool.

I am not one to watch any animal suffer needlessly, but the baby bird seemed to be relatively intact. It was slow to move, and covered in drool, but nothing was bleeding. I spent the next 3 hours debating what to do, as the momma bird watched us from a few feet away.

Finally the little bird seemed to come out of shock and went about it’s business. I really hope it ended well for the little bird. I was depressed for hours. If a hungry cat had gotten it, I would have been upset, but ok. I would understand if other natural events had occurred, but my dog was simply playing with it. Not cool.

My dark sense of humor couldn’t help itself when it came to naming the margarita cupcakes, though…
