Chef’s Note: We’ve spoken before about how having a superhero &/or alien body allows for and, indeed, often requires a caloric intake that even the Romans in their heyday would not compare to. Here we find that Kara apparently enjoys sticky buns every morning! And please note the plural of bun here, as the waitress is obviously delivering the next in a series that has been going on for how long? We don’t know.
Still, it’s nothing too too excessive. The waitress is amazed but charmed – not alarmed or alienated. Probably because she knows that the thing that regulates how we process food into calories – metabolism – is actually quite variable from person to person.
Chef’s Note: Happy National Sticky Bun Day!
