we're on the same page obviously

This morning I got up a little melancholy
(REALLY?!?!)
and I knew the answer to my problems could probably be food.
Its raining and nasty and dark in the city and what does that mean?

CHILI.

So made some.
Its still cooking.
It smells like what dreams are made of.

Is it a coincidence or fate that our new prezzie's favorite food to cook is chili???

I say fate.

Barack and Michelle and those cute fucking kids of theirs can come over and share mine any time.
I really mean that.

And although my recipe borders on perfection, I'll bet theirs is delish too.
