Day 242: Afters

In British English, the term “afters” refers to, well, dessert.

Or whatever the diner might like to have next after dining on dinner.

In avian English, “afters” carries the same basic meaning.

Only the specifics of what the diner prefers for his afters may be somewhat, um, different.

Boy, dinner today looks delicious!

Don't mind if I do....especially these white bits. They're scrumptious.
