I always figured the Death Star had a sweet center.
Sometimes you only want one little cookie. Sometimes you only want one little hard peppermint. I think this philosophy stretches across a lot of disciplines. Sometimes you only want one little cup of coffee, kiss from the dog, shot of tequila, chocolate on your pillow... I could go on and on.
I can speak from experience when I say that having a super adorable apron to wear in the kitchen makes cooking and cleaning less of a chore. Knowing you look cute makes you feel cute and feeling cute just amps up the energy a bit. Then my roast chicken tastes even better.
