Daydreamer.

Y’all.

It’s Friday.

Go crazy.

Let’s.

Do this.

Chances are you have a super big meeting with a “big guy” from your company, who ironically isn’t a big guy at all, but a 4’2 man in his late 50′s who has an ego the size of Jupiter and speaks 5 different languages, all of which you can’t understand.

Buttttt…you don’t care.

Your mind is fixiated on Friday’s after-work special…Margaritas, Tex-Mex, and Bravo re-runs of Real Housewives of anything.

Orrrrr maybe you skipped Friday’s shenanigans and drifted off into Saturday morning.

Which involves pancakes.

Duh.

Only good things begin with cinnamon.

My life is nothing without coconut.

Okay, good…I was afraid I was going to have to check you off my bff list.

Y’all…you must get up close and personal with these pancakes.
