one lesson in eight lines

Mama’s Losin’ It

3.) Write a post in just eight lines.

Last year Husband was in charge of buying the Halloween candy.

He went retro and needless to say Trick or Treaters left all Mary Janes for us.

He made me suffer in silence as he handed out posh swiss chocolate.

Not one was left for me.

I got what I wanted and it is not all it is cracked up to be.

If he wants molasses, molasses it is…

    You showed remarkable restraint. I don’t think a jury would have convicted you had you defended your chocolate from such a heinous crime.

    This is what all the kids want…Sour Patch Kids. Every single child who came to my house wanted the Sour Patch Kids. Which means I still have all the chocolate. At least all the chocolate that I haven’t already eaten.
