‘Tasty food!’ he said, licking his fingers.

She smiled. It was their first date. She had done the cooking.

‘But what is it?’ he asked. ‘Beef?’

‘Pork?’

‘No.’

‘Lamb?’

‘No.’

‘Poultry?’

‘No.’

‘Deer?’

‘No.’

‘Fish?’

‘No.’

‘Moose?’

‘Of course not!’

‘What then?’

      1. People may eat snakes in some parts of the world, but they certainly don’t in the West, not regularly at least, and not without their knowledge.

        I’m not sure I’d like to dine with you and be told afterward that you’ve just fed me tasty snakes. 🙂

        1. Uh-huh. Okay!
          And I’m sorry… I don’t know why I always expect a ‘purpose’ in your stories!

          And rest assured, I don’t eat snakes. I’ve never even seen one in person!

If you leave me a comment I will send you an invisible gift.
