Weekly Homework Assignment

It's that time of the week again - Mama Kat's Homework Assignment I chose the following prompt: What is an unpleasant experience you had eating? Write a poem, paragraph, or something else about the experience.

Reluctantly going to my aunt's ...
It was Easter, so I had to put on good pants.

I knew we were having ham for dinner.
In my mind this was not a winner.

I've hated ham ever since I was a kid.
I threw up on ham a number of times, yes I did.

I was hoping they'd have another dinner for me.
However, they did not ... no-sir-ee.

My mom told me to eat some of the dishes on the side.
But instead, I wanted to run and hide.

She asked if I wanted corn, broccoli, or apple sauce.
If I ate them, cookies I would toss.

Frustrated, my mom told me to eat a bowl of ketchup.
To which I happily replied, "Bottoms Up!"

I ate ketchup for as my meal.
To me it was no big deal.

No longer has ham been the only meat.
A side of turkey just can't be beat!

My hubby could have pulled up a chair and eaten right along side of you. He's a ketchup lover as well. We always keep at least two bottles on hand at all times... I should buy stock...

LOL that meal must have been really bad if you ate a bowl of ketchup instead

Leave it to you to put beating meat into a poem. Go figure.

That was so much fun! You clearly like ketchup more than I do though.

Excellent!

Ewww. Now I'm as big a ketchup fan as any...but a bowl of it?? Blech.

I'm not a fan of ham though either...I would have hidden with you.
