Royal Chocolate Scones


It's almost 11PM, and I'm making scones.

For breakfast.

Tomorrow morning.

To eat as I watch the royal wedding.

I'm not getting up at 4AM though.

I'll do 6AM and catch what I catch on TV.

What?

Hmmmm?

You think I should go all out and wear my pearl necklace?

At 6AM??

Great idea.

I think I shall.

Tarry on!
