Sinful Delight and Sweet Indulgence

10 September 2012, 11:49

Whether you approach it aggressively and tear right into it as if your life depended on it (sometimes it does feel that way) or whether you reverently interact with it, the effect of that undeniable comfort is a kind of loyalty and satisfaction that not even MasterCard can buy.
