Small Treats

Every once-in-a-while, I drink directly from the container of half-and-half.


And, I pause to smile.

Such a small extravagance makes me feel royal.

While it's really not a big deal, it's forbidden, isn't it?

Straight-up half-and-half is not on the list of 'good food'.

From the container is uncouth.

And, so...

While the house sleeps

(and under the watchful eye of the cat),

I shake off the rules and the norms.

I enjoy the secret satisfaction of the illicit indulgence.

Small treats.
