3 Cheddar Cheese and Chocolate Cake I am crazy about rich, dark, espresso coffee.I am addicted to extra-sharp cheddar cheese and chocolate cake.I never tire of window-shopping or munching crisp apple pies from Burger King.I can consume a whole package of Wheat Thins while curled up reading a favorite novel.I wear purple eyeshadow and pink nail varnish- always.I love to laugh and scream for joy, to sing at the top of my voice.I like to play heavy rock loud enough to burst your eardrums.I like crazy parties, whipped cream, and solitude.Juliet Gainsborough

You’re the worst thing that could ever- hic- happen!If you ever should disturb me again,I shall toss you out of my vocal chords.You’re like hail on an angry alligator.So, catch my drift, dear hiccups-hic-and get far, far away.Get out-hic-DEAR, AWFUL HICCUPS!-hic- Jennifer Nussinow
