– Sweets For My Sweet –

“Yes, honey?”
“What are these things under the ramp?”
“Hold on a moment, sugar, let me just finish this. Here, you have one as well, they’re to die for.”
“Mmm, oh yes!”
“What did you want to know? Sorry, I got side-tracked. Here, have the last one.”
“I wanted to know about the jagged things under the ramp.”
“Oh, yes. I think they’re steps. Back in the Lean Times, people walked. Instead of zooming up the ramp in one of these babies, they had to use the steps, wasting all their energy. Strange, huh?”
“How primitive! Mother?”
“Yes, sweetie?”
“Can we buy another box of Snickers bars? I could do with a snack before lunch.”

  1. Oh, I’m with you on this one. You are, as we say, “pushing against an open door here.” Is the whole planet obsessed with comfort food? Nice one.

  2. The only way this could have been better is if one of them had lost a foot to The Diabetes. I know, I know, darling, not funny, but then, when Swift suggested the Irish eat their children, he wasn’t trying to be funny, either.
    This was excellent.

    1. I adore that idea… (scribbles surreptitious future plot thought on napkin and slides it into pocket…..)

      Indeed, he wasn’t. Much like the blood libel spread around Europe for hundreds of years about the Jewish population.

      Thank you – I’m pleased you enjoyed it!

  3. Dear Freya,

    I see these people all the time in their mark carts at the grocery store. Too obese to walk, trolling for free cookies. The ultimate child abuse. I’d say nice one, but…



  4. Oh, that primitive walking around! A scary thought for everyone zooming around and snacking all the time. But realistic, though. Now excuse me, I’m going to take the escalator to the croissant store on the second floor…
