« A poem by me

Inspired by a conversation overheard on the bus

I like a good caramel apple, me.*

That's not entirely true. The idea of the caramel apple is a delicious one. The sweetness of the caramel combines with tartness of the Granny Smith (the best variety of all for caramel appling) for a delightful mixture of flavours. Unfortunately, it is impossible to eat a caramel apple without looking ridiculous eating off a stick and without getting your face and hands all sticky. And as you may know, avoiding messiness is one of my top priorities in life**. It's a conundrum for me, so I often only catch myself halfway through the eating of a caramel apple and wonder why I put myself in this situation. A much better alternative is Granny Smith slices dipped in caramel sauce, but this is much more difficult to find at fairgrounds and apple orchards.

So what do you think annoys me most about this delicious delicious waylaying temptress, the caramel apple? From the previous paragraph, it would seem that the messiness and stickiness and lookingstupidness would win out. Oh reader, how little you know! The most annoying thing about caramel apples has nothing to do with the apples themselves, but with the tendency of the caramel-apple-vending industry to advertise their product as "carmel apples." Do they come from California? While I am terribly obsessive-compulsive about messiness, I am far more OCD when it comes to spelling.

I agree -- you are *far* more OCD when it comes to speling...

I am going to hope that you did that on purpose and refuse to comment. But it's hard. :'(

"I like... spelling... maybe I could be an editor!"
"An eeeeeeeeeeevil editor?"

I've seen her eat a caramel apple, which would lead me to agree with MaTT, plus there's that 'terrible porn' episode I love to giggle at... hee!

'Terrible porn'?! I must have missed that... Does it involve eating caramel apples?

I forgot about that caramel apple incident! Ah, so much 501 research was done that night...

Mike's great-grandma makes terrible p0rn. And it's really good!
