That’s legit 😍

Well, aren’t you the clever one, David! None of us considered this most necessary fruit!

You are totally getting into my head, David. Fun poem!

I love reading limericks but detest writing them ( I only do it as a penance)! I’m sure that those who crave caffeine can relate to this one – since I never learned to like coffee I’ll just enjoy the delight of the words!
Indeed, perfection. (K)

You are the emoji king.

Apparently, they can make some sort of tea from the cherries themselves….
Brilliant! Off to make a coffee now….can’t think who may have put that into my head….. 😉
