caramel apple – Moving with Mitchell

The Spanish version is after the English version.

WHEN MY SISTER DALE AND I were kids, My Mother the Dowager Duchess never permitted us to have candy apples or caramel apples. “Just have a plain apple!” she would snap. “Those are disgusting, and nothing but sugar.” Check out the photo below and tell me if The Duchess doesn’t look like she’s enjoying herself.
