snack – dverse

November 18, 2014

The humble fridge
Silently watches,
Anticipates my wants
And the compressor rumbles and sighs
Despairing that though
He illuminates the path to the veggie drawer
my heart seeks out the cheese.

    This is the best! πŸ™‚ I don’t think there is anyone alive who can’t relate to this…and you put it so well.

    • you and your sister did so enjoy being puppies and eating your snacks in bowls on the floor – not using your hands.

      • Shannon permalink

        puppies and the living room olympics are some of my favorite memories! we did do some serious mashing of mom’s favorite throw pillows with our long-jumps and summersaults!

  2. Are you sure you wrote this about you, not me? Ha. I’m a cheeseaholic and what you describe, describes my fridge perfectly.

  3. Always follow what the heart says, the veggies can wait.

  4. Oh..if only they could talk! πŸ˜‰

  5. My heart ALWAYS seeks out cheese! I think I was a mouse in my previous life πŸ˜‰

  6. Big chuckle — very nice!

  7. Yea. I can connect! If only I could live off cheese and chocolates

  8. Oh, how I know that dilemma!
    A short, sweet, witty take on the prompt – I love it!

  9. πŸ˜› great one.

  10. You made me smile, Bill. Fortunately there are dishes which combine cheese and veggies!

    • yes, but for the lazy, cheese is so convenient πŸ™‚

      I think Jan dropped you a note, and I know we are a bit far away, but if you don’t have plans for Thanksgiving we’d love to invite you down. We’ll have some champagne and a bit of food πŸ™‚

  11. Soft French cheese
    Specialite double – creme
    Doppelrahm – Kase
    to die for
    depending on cholesterol
    (maybe literally as well:)

    Anyone who can finish the last line with the word cheese has already captivated me; you did a fine job attacking the prompt with humor & insight.

  13. This gave me a big smile. Poor veggie drawer…neglected again.

  14. Maybe make a cheese-vegetable dish to feast on in the dark hours of night?

  15. i’d go for the cheese cake myself… vivid write

  16. I so love cheese, but not the forgotten one though πŸ™‚ I am always ignoring the veggies πŸ™‚

  17. Cheddar with walnuts? πŸ™‚

  18. Ah, the silent grumbler! Quite a view πŸ™‚
    If only it could selectively preserve, it had a better chance πŸ™‚

  19. I believe fridges speak to us…we don’t have to always listen πŸ˜‰

  20. Yes the humble fridge has hidden treasures.. I have never gone hunting in the nigh though..

  21. hmmm… love me some nice cheese… i was doing those nightly excursions to the fridge during the time i was breastfeeding my babies…
    and hey… cheese goes well with veggies…so

    • you live in the the heart of cheesedom πŸ™‚

      But so often our heart seems to crave what our conscience tells us we should avoid.
