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!
