*Oops* Peanut Butter-Swirl Brownies

My bad.

Well, actually. How about a lesson in: Accountability. see/do:

Oops! I made peanut butter batter to swirl into the brownies. Fuck, I really didn’t mean to make them richer and more delicious.

God, I was even planning to eat healthfully today. What a knucklehead I am for doing this thing

that I openly admit to doing and am not putting on anybody else whatsoever, because I did it, and it was me, even if there were other options at the time

And I won’t attack anybody else over this thing I am responsible for, because

I am able to admit to putting peanut butter in the brownies.

(And it was delicious.)
