Premium Member A Few Sweeteners At First
I started out with a few sweeteners in my coffee
And half and half
And then the experiments began

I am up to five sweeteners
A hot chocolate packet
Cinnamon and a pudding mix

Premium Member My henchman, my minion, my stooge
He was my henchman, my minion, my stooge, and we both liked it that way.
But then he moved away with a new girlfriend, and became her henchman,
Leaving me to fend for myself.
