Home from the Market
Oh my god! What's wrong with me?
I can't believe I did it again.
I bought another peanut butter.
That brings the number up to ten.
And ketchup? The one I bought
will nestle very nicely
between the six already stored.
The condiments enticed me.
While in that aisle I also bought
some onion powder and garlic salt,
both of which I now can see
I’ve dozens of, it is my fault.
I never remember what I already have
so I always seem to slip up.
Dinner tonight is onion and garlic,
peanut-flavored chicken with ketchup.
(oops….I forgot to buy the chicken)
The kids are coming home to visit. Time to stock up at the market. I'd better write a list, and then remember to take it with me! But even with a list, those memory issues play their little tricks.
I am not making this up! I have a dozen garlic salts and a variety of peanut butter. You????
