i've been on a bagel kick. and i love hot, spicy stuff. i bought a jar of jalapeno slices last week and it is mostly gone. last night i made a bagel, spread some veggie-cream cheese on it and placed a few jalapeno slices on it and chomped it down. it was so good. a pepper slice fell off and saffron stuck her nose on it really fast, before i could get it. she jerked her head back and shook it really hard a few times and then licked her nose. which was probably a mistake cuz then she stuck her tongue out and looked at me. so pitiful and reproachful. poor thing.
