Dinner Poem

If you’re having a dinner party

with guests in the ‘nine and under’ category

it will be crazy

kids wearing roller skates

kids wearing fireman costumes

kids wearing camouflage rubber boots

(and those were just my kids)

no amount of planning and prepping beforehand will change that

so it’s imperative to eat well

during those three minutes when you’re sitting down

with a plate of lukewarm food in front of you

mashed potatoes and brownies and some other stuff too

what could be better

(rhetorically speaking)

  1. Whipping cream, butter and sour cream!? well, that explains it! “other stuff” was really, really great too – thanks.
