Me: Can I take a break?
Gentle Reader: Sure…sure! Yes, of course! But…um….
Me: I want to try new things. I want to go outside to play, get some fresh air, and do some much needed people watching. Plus, I haven’t baked blueberry muffins in *ages*.
GR: Ahhhhh. All right. You won’t be gone long, though, will you? Will you come back?
Me: Well, I did this once before, and you know me: when the muffins are ready to share, I’ll be back. Big hugs and thank you!
GR: See you later!
