Even more might make love handles felt!
By chance I found you, looked for more on a whim
And now my craving I cannot deny
I seek you out -- my mind in such a haze
I look, I listen and I sigh
To velvet richness of voice, brooding azure gaze.
As long as you are there and I can see
I will continue both to sigh and squee!
(With apologies to William Shakespeare)

Last Sunday I bought lottery tickets at the fair and won. But the prize disappointed me a lot. Because I got a teddy bear, chocolate, and marzipan. I threw it all angrily into the crowd while screaming at the lottery ticket seller:
