A cinnamon roll he needed

I'd baked all day so I pleaded

"Please give it a try,

(you capable guy)

and get it yourself!" He succeeded!

***I would like to note that while he did get it himself, I still had to provide instructions on reheating***

    Now you're just being cruel. Is there anything that can compete with warm cinnamon buns? I remember once standing in a cinnamon tree forest in Zanzibar and it nearly drove me crazy; not a cinna-bun for a thousand miles!
