SOLC at Two Writing Teachers, and the poem below it, goes with it, and it's a contribution to Poetry Jam where the poetic topic this week is FOOD!
About once a month a friend and I meet for tea and a cookie. Two weeks
ago when we arrived for tea, my usual giant homemade gingersnap cookie
had just sold out. I asked her to run after the person that had bought
the last one and get it back, but she wouldn't do it. She did, however,
agree that the next time I could call ahead and have one put on reserve
for me. I think I will have to do that! I substituted a homemade
shortbread Tyrannosaurus Rex cut out cookie for my usual. It was cute,
and very sweet! But I think, really I may just try calling to make a
gingerbread cookie reservation next time.
When it was time for tea,
The waitress said to me,
"We haven’t any ginger snaps;
Would you like Mr. T?
His icing’s sweet and green -
The whitest teeth you’ve seen.
But I would eat him quickly ere
He has his bite with tea!"
