I gave a portion of the batch of krispy treats to my parents and some to my boyfriend.  I was left with one krispy treat.  ONE.

It’s always a sad moment when there’s only one krispy treat left  🙁

So I made sure to savor each bite, chewing slowly and calmly.  Just kidding, I devoured it like a wild animal who hadn’t eaten for 3 days  😉
