Baked Beans

Hump Day Humor is hosted by Mercedes at Mercedes Rocks!

Theme: Surprises

One day I met a sweet gentleman and fell in love. When it became apparent that we would marry, I made the supreme sacrifice and gave up beans.

Some months later, on my birthday, my car broke down on the way home from work. Since I lived in the countryside I called my husband and told him that I would be late because I had to walk home.

On my way, I passed by a small diner and the odor of baked beans was more than I could stand. With miles to walk, I figured that I would walk off any ill effects by the time I reached home, so I stopped at the diner and before I knew it, I had consumed three large orders of baked beans. All the way home, I made sure that I released all the gas.

Upon my arrival, my husband seemed excited to see me and exclaimed delightedly, “Darling I have a surprise for dinner tonight.” He then blindfolded me and led me to my chair at the dinner table.

I took a seat and just as he was about to remove my blindfold, the telephone rang. He made me promise not to touch the blindfold until he returned and went to answer the call.

The baked beans I had consumed were still affecting me and the pressure was becoming most unbearable, so while my husband was out of the room I seized the opportunity, shifted my weight to one leg and let one go. It was not only loud, but it smelled like a fertilizer truck running over a skunk in front of a pulpwood mill.

I took my napkin from my lap and fanned the air around me vigorously. Then, shifting to the other cheek, I ripped off three more. The stink was worse than cooked cabbage…

Keeping my ears carefully tuned to the conversation in the other room, I went on like this for another few minutes. The pleasure was indescribable. When eventually the telephone farewells signaled the end of my freedom, I quickly fanned the air a few more times with my napkin, placed it on my lap and folded my hands back on it feeling very relieved and pleased with myself.

My face must have been the picture of innocence when my husband returned, apologizing for taking so long. He asked me if I had peeked through the blindfold, and I assured him I had not.

I admit, I have never made homemade ice cream myself-well I have helped others make it. Today I am going to share with you a few things I have done with ice cream and sherbet in the past. I will also share with you as many of the flavors (32) I remember selling when I worked at The Carousel, an ice cream/food shop in our local mall, for eight years.

Fill in the Blanks

Moody Mondays is hosted by Shannon H. at Moody Mondays!

This week’s Moody Monday is all Fill-in The Blanks!

1. On Monday mornings I like to (This is during my Summer Break: blog, wash clothes, make business calls-make appointments).
2. The worst thing about Monday’s is nothing during my Summer break-last school year it was bus duty-aaahhhh!
3. Sometimes I like to order a soft drink at a restaurant, but most of the time I prefer to drink water.
4. I think pets are truly our best friends-they want nothing but to be loved and offer us so much in return: companionship, loyalty, and love!
5. A wise person once told me “Don’t eat yellow snow”-lol!
