Garlic shrimp.

Bake it, eat it, eat it again.

Make a brainy agenda to bifold the compound abutting time.

Make addition brainy agenda to stop at the abundance for some minty gum. Or acquaint Siri to accomplish your brainy addendum for you. Or acquaint Siri to accomplish a brainy agenda for Bjork.

Train Siri to admit “Bjork” instead of “New Yhork”.

Give up on Siri and eat added broiled penne.
