Warm nooks and crannies

Wikipedia has this to say about crumpets:
"A crumpet is a savoury/sweet bread snack made from flour and yeast. It is eaten mainly in the United Kingdom, but also in the nations of the Commonwealth.
Crumpets were an Anglo-Saxon invention. In early times, they were hard pancakes cooked on a griddle, rather than the soft and spongy crumpets of the Victorian era which were made with yeast. The crumpet-makers of the Midlands and London developed the characteristic holes, by adding extra baking powder to the yeast dough. The term itself may refer to a crumpled or curled-up cake, or have Celtic origins relating to the Breton krampoez meaning a "thin, flat cake" and the Welsh crempog or crempot, a type of pancake. Since many English words have Germanic roots, another possible root is the similar German word krumm (from Middle High German krump, krum) which means "bent"."


And on and on and on. It's a muffin, basically. In the picture they show.


Zesty means enjoyable, exciting, or piquant. Or sometimes orange or lemon peel(-ish).

So when Warren called me a zesty crumpet, he was saying that I have greasy skin, soft and spongy, or I excite him and he wants to smear me with melted butter. Either.
Eeeewwwwww, I'm going to be sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and even more exclamation points!

Keep it clean, please. My blog is NOT a porn-writers convention.

At least I don't think it is, and I'm not entirely sure whether all of you greasy-handed men actually think.

Your hands are probably going to be hit with a heavy iron bar if you aren't careful.
