It’s just a big, empty scar on the earth. There’s something about it for sure. And the way Honey Bear sleeps in the dead center of it every night as if he were protecting something sacred.

The perfect segue to ending a busy week. To her, he was her honey bear and to him, she was his honey bunny. He was portly and charming; she was petite and witty. They definitely complemented each other, and they knew it.
