Someone I love just got some news about their health. Food always makes me feel better. Why not dress up like a cupcake to cheer them up? I think this is gonna be so much fun. And if it brightens up their day, that'll be the icing on the cupcake."

I've had many husbands. But this husband is the last one. Tonight, I'm singing Bruno Mars "Finesse", and I love Bruno Mars. I just have a crush on his romantic manner. I love that. You know, I like to sing what makes me feel good, and he makes me feel good. My husband and I, we is both dripping in finesse, child. Ha ha ha ha."
