I love bandages... So, I was amused when I saw this page at Real Simple:
I am like a little kid. I like bandages in different color, material and size... At the store, I always want to buy more. Who can blame little kids wanting to have a band aid on the smallest boo-boo. The actual article from the magazine is here in case you want to read more.

fruit with yogurt, etc… (Other than Saturday mornings) However, some days we
wake up and there is something in the air, it feels like a special breakfast
