Sigh…. Well, there’s nothing to do but to go for it. Hmm … let’s see … I wonder if they all taste the same.
I don’t have teeth, so I guess I just have to swallow the thing whole. Not very ladylike, but here goes. Gulp!
Oh man! These are big enough to choke a horse. Good thing I’m not a horse. Do I look like a Christmas decoration?
This is the last one … OOPS! Just about fell off my perch. I guess that means I’ve had enough.
Have you tasted holly berries? Oh, of course, you did. Little ones, and Luscious ones, You're sitting right amid.
