In that moment I was so groggy and happy I would have accepted a date with Oscar the Grouch - and planned to do some serious feeling up on the green furry beast too.

“The Gingerbread House has four walls, a roof, a door, a window, and a chimney. It is decorated with many sweet culinary delights on the outside.

They will stay in residence for as long as you abstain from taking the first gingerbread bite.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

'That's a very kind thought,' Layla approved.”
Eloisa James, Once Upon a Tower
