She’s Gone Fruit Loops
Our language may be based in Latin but our vernacular is steeped in food. For example, when I say, ‘she’s gone fruit loops’, you know that woman is crazy. In my post lunch reverie I quickly came up with a handful of expressions, metaphors and similes to prove my point. As a little food for thought, what can you add?

and lastly… I relish these terms of endearment: sweetie, sugar, honey
