I’m the kind of person who loves jam¹ donuts. I eat all around the edges until I have that big splodgy bit in the middle with all the jam in it. Then you have all the sugar all over your fingers, and you shove the whole delicious splodge in your mouth and lick your fingers and nom. But the thought of simply giving that last perfect morsel to someone is unthinkable, right?
I think when you’re eating a jam donut, or a vanilla slice (or pretty much any pastry) and you know someone you want to just give it to because that’s how much you love them – then you are definitely onto a good thing. It’s a simple yard stick – but a worthy one. Now go buy some sweet treats share them bite for bite with your incredible someone:)
