LAUREL, sitting on the DOCK of the BAY eating GINGER
snaps, SAGE-ly decided that being PEPPER-ed by hailstones
was not good for her. At the party last night, TIMOTHY asked
her to dance, and she told him to ask ROSEMARY, because she
was going to dance with BASIL during the next set. He told
her she would RUE her CHILI rejection of him, but she felt
that he may become the BANE of her existence if she gave him
the THYME of day. He got really angry, and made fun of her
LAVENDER dress, whereupon she smote him mightily with her
MACE and CLOVE his head. He told her after he healed, he
and his friend, HERB, would be CUMIN after her, and would
TARE her arms off and BRAKE her face. She then gave him a
POKE in the belly, and moved to OREGANO where her friend,
ANGELICA, was frequently engaging in interesting CAPERS.
HERB was only interested in one thing anyway: he was a real
HOREHOUND, who would take all the LOVAGE he could get. Some-
times LAUREL was a little spicey herself, but only PARSLEY
so. CICELY was much worse than she. She said, "Open SESAME"
to the most unSAVORY people, even BENNE, who was a rotten
if ever there was one. LAUREL walked slowly up
to take a LEEK before getting into her MINT-
CHIVE-y to drive home.
