Author's notes: This drabble resulted from something called the iTunes meme where you set your music player on random, and write something inspired by a song as long as the song lasts. It was my favorite of the bunch; you can see the rest on my LiveJournal. The song for this piece was "Stuff We Did" from the UP soundtrack.
Stuff We Did
When he comes home from the funeral, the house is dark and empty. His children and grandchildren have all gone home, and he is alone with his memories of her.
It is quiet in the kitchen. He opens the refrigerator, and notices there is a one blue cupcake sitting on a plate, just as lonely as he is.
He pulls out the cupcake, sits down at the kitchen table, and remembers the first time she baked him one, sixty years ago.
