Sometimes you need something sweet.
Connie pointed to the orange cranberry pastry and paid for her splurge.
Once seated she dipped it in her coffee and took a bite.
Nothing prepared her for the explosion of signals from her tastebuds.
Everyone in her family preferred biscuits, but she would always be team…
Perfect doughnuts penetrated my persnickety consciousness
All demanding my devotion to their deliciousness
So I complied, completely cashing out with my confections
Taking titillating bite after bite to toast my triumph
Realize that these rare respites from my diet restrictions
Yields too many yummy yeast infused carbs for my blood sugar
The date had gone well till dessert
At that point, her expression soured
Ralph let go of the final pastry
The fact he had not even offered to share made the atmosphere acerbic
So he learned a lesson. Skip the sweet stuff till the date is done
