french toast

God, man
It's been a long time since I've had someone whistle in my kitchen
It's quite the delight
Ahhh...you made coffee
And you're making french toast!
You are a saint
You gotta fiddle with that knob on the left rear burner
Like this
It's a pain in the butt sometimes
Personally, I think it just likes the extra attention
Mmm...your ear smells like cinnamon
not fair, man, that...
not fair at all
your ass looks better in my sweatpants than mine does
I now have to kill myself
After I eat a loaf of french toast, though
You want some orange juice?
freshly squeezed...somewhere
Tell me, again
Why is it we never were?

  8. I believed it every line right until your disclosure! Only I wear my guy's sweat pants, I would kill myself if I caught him in my yoga pants ;)!! I would like to taste his ear with a little cinnamon though!
