Those Bavarian Eclairs ?
by J!. J!. Hansen @ 100208

We are all a work in progress -
some are like breads -
that need to be kneaded!.
Some are nutty and crazy -
like a ripe fruit cake -
to which too much liquor has been added!.
Some are like cupcakes -
a lot of frosting on top -
but not much substance underneath!.
And some are like those rich Bavarian eclairs -
just bursting with richness and goodness -
and waiting to tantalize your senses ?

i would be a cranberry!. A little sweet, a little tart!. grown in new england (I'm from maine)!. Versatile---can be dried, juiced, jellied!. Excellent for you, yet the cranberry knows how to party since cranberry juice goes good with almost any liquor!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I would have to be a fruit cake
Since my darling daughter-in-law
Likes often to say 'You're special'
Before running out of the door!.
She means that I am special
In the the sense being 'cuckoo'
But my kids all think I'm normal
So, I reply 'Thanks, so are you!'

i think i would have to be an apple!. not just because i adore apples, but because apples are hard and crunchy on the outside!. not to mention hard to get to without a brainfreeze!. :D but as soon as you bite through the interior is absolutly amazing O!.OWww@QuestionHome@Com

Ripening on the vine, just ready to eat!.

Life as a pineapple!.!.
Too much roundness, but still very striking!. Not wanting to be touched by people I've never seen and can be very sour if not savored at the right time!. Www@QuestionHome@Com
