The Sugar Lips lady makes miniature donuts with a plethora of sugary toppings.  I was tempted, but reason took over.  Kids love them so they must be good.
As I watched the little machine inside, flip the little donuts I mused over the word "sugar."  Why do we pronounce it "shugar."  I looked it up on the internet and got a very boring dissertation on why.  It's the same reason we pronounce "sure" as "shure."  Look it up.  I'm not your fucking professor.
