It manipulates and empties the mind … Continue reading It.
Selfishness drove me to grab the last chilled from the Fridge, Apple. The rest of the family had beaten me to all the others. Unknown to me they had been selfishly guarding a secret that they were plainly at pains to keep! Crunch coefficient running around 95-98%.
