He had done a good job of covering his tracks, but that was to be expected. After all, one does not conspire to ruin a House and murder a queen and then just stand there waving and waiting patiently for retribution.

He's anticipating that Pablo will do a special beefcake pinup of Jacob tomorrow.

... this comes to mind...


I know I stand in line,
until you think you have the time
to spend an evening with me.
And if we go some place to dance,
I know that there's a chance
you won't be leaving with me.
And afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
and have a drink or two.
And then I go and spoil it all,
by saying something stupid
like: "I love you."

See, now, Castela, drinking coffee at your age can lead to all sorts of problems. Stunted growth. Stained teeth. Mortification...

I think a major part of the reason shes having trouble accepting him as a boyfriend is that he knows just about everything about her while she knows nearly nothing of him.

"Although most plants benefit from the nutrient boost associated with adding coffee grounds to the soil or compost, some plants may be harmed by the addition. Exposure to coffee grounds has caused inhibited seed germination and stunted plant growth in plants including white clover (Trifolium repens), alfalfa (Medicago sativa), Chinese mustard (Brassica juncea), inch plants (Tradescantia albiflora), asparagus fern and geraniums." (SFGate article)

No telling how coffee might affect blackthorn (Prunus spinosa).

Maybe she can inhibit the sprouting of lustblossoms by using a coffee shampoo? or would the nutrients just make matters worse? Maybe Nescafé - that would stunt anything.

Well, now she has a quandary. She wants to get rid of the rose, but if she does he'll wonder why.

Go ahead, Castela. What he thinks doesn't matter... right...

  • C-o-f-f-e-e, coffee is not for me,
    It's a drink some people wake up with,
    That it makes them nervous is no myth,
    Slaves to a coffee cup, they can't give coffee up.

It isn't habit forming as long as you drink it every day. :mrgreen:

Coffee is such an essentially social beverage.

This is easy to prove, from personal experience. If I don't drink it, I become very unsocial for several days, until the headaches go away.
