Painkiller Cocktail

Painkiller Cocktail from PasstheSushi.com

The other day my boyfriend came back from a quick errand all pleased with himself. I was brushing my teeth and he starts hollering to come out and see what he got me. I rolled my eyes and went about brushing my teeth. We’ve been together while, I know his quick trip to the market and liquor store in no way resulted in a present for me. Yet he continues to call for my attention from the hallway. And you know that exact moment when you start to get excited. Like, maybe Handsome really did find something that was perfect for […]

But Miss Kita… you told us last week you didn’t like pumpkin pie…. Liar liar pants on fire. Ok, ok. I hear ya! But the truth is, I don’t like pumpkin pie. There’s just something about it, after about two forkfuls I’m done. Unless there is a mountain, and I mean ridiculous-right-to-your-hips-never-wear-skinny-jeans-again.
