Taste good? You should hear what they sound like!

Shopping for milk, eggs, and donuts.
Carrying my basket through the bakery/deli area, I passed by various rolls and pastries and blah.

But then...

My eyes fell upon a box of the gooiest, yummiest, mouth-watering-est sticky buns I had ever seen in my life.

I gasped loudly.
"Oh. My!"

I gently lifted them from the shelf with both hands. Caressed the plastic cover. Moaned with expectant pleasure.

Then I turned.
Just up the aisle stood a woman with an embarassed kind of grin on her face. She'd been waiting for her deli order and had heard me make such a loud fuss that she instinctually looked to see what had happened.

Beet red, I held out the box of sticky buns so she could see them.
"They called to me!" I begged her to understand.

"I know!" she replied. "I heard them!"

And here I was, debating if "mouth-watering-est" was a word!

I know that call: sweet, warm & seems to say, "hey there. want some of these"?

Unfortunately, it's only sweets, never women. ha ha

My buns always seem to be calling out. My wife is not happy about it, either.
