    Hi Melanie !

    Sling-shot: 1) Goliath was sling-shot (or slanged) 2) The Singapore sling-shot recipe may be found here (and elsewhere, but here is where I found it): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore_Sling ; the non-alcoholic virgin (sic) here: http://www.ehow.com/how_4119_make-virgin-singapore.html

    Recipe:
    Enchant Me

    Your very being a desire for answer
    Lament not your unassailable mystery
    Enchant me with your dreams

    Determination: Constantly trying to put square pegs into round holes

    Grit:
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...
