Bedtime Stories

Question

After you've had your fill

Though the feeling oh so fleeting

These last couple a bits

Might tell you what you're meeting

The maker of unknown promise

With a tinge of Eastern mystique

Mostly common sense

Occasionally tongue and cheek

What's brought into the fold

Ironic the cost of each

Could be your just desserts

Always ending up 'tween the sheets

Chewing tobacco/dip, chewing gum

Romance novels?

Hey S R - Always amazes me the unpredicted responses which fit so nicely. Good answers both, but not it.

crumbs

hello clinton - I have no relations with that answer (just kidding, probably heard that a thousand times, huh? couldn't help myself tho) actually, some very clever connections but not what I'm after here.

Can never tell how these are going to go. Was worried there for a bit. Realized late the probable local lore of Chinese food being filling but not long lasting and the adding of "in bed" or "between the sheets" to the end of the portion. But bailed out by the oh so clever ~Just~Me~. Apologies to the more worldly crowd. Always fun in any event. Be back soon.

Thanks, PG! I'd just had Chinese food with a fortune cookie, so nothin' clever about it, just good timing! It was a good riddle, though, as always!
