Bananas

Writing prompt: Groceries from Down With Writer’s Block.

I only allowed myself ten minutes to free write. Unedited

I got the bananas.

I swear that I did.

How could they be gone already?

And this one is whining,

because there are no donuts.

“Go eat a banana,” I said.

We just finished lunch,

they are asking for more.

He asked “what’s for dinner?”

as he walked through the door.

Dear heavens, sweet family,

We have a houseful of food,

but you’ll eat none of it,

you’re not “in the mood”.

So off to the store,

getting groceries again.

Milk, bread, and pizza,

lunch meat and salads,

noodles and sauces,

and cereal boxes.

Well crud, I forgot more bananas.
