Bea’s parents fed her oatmeal every morning for over a week.
She hated it.

Since her parents were always stoned they never noticed
Bea hiding her breakfast in their planters,
until her daddy found it and let out a yell.

“What?” Mama asked.

Daddy answered, “Bea’s porriage in the pot nine days old!”

  2. Dr. John would’ve loved that one! [As did I].

    In our house it was Cream of Wheat. One day Mom ran out and cooked oatmeal. I love Mom but her oatmeal was like wallpaper paste and she LIKED it that way. One day she ran out of Cream of Wheat and was trying to convince my 5 year old brother to eat oatmeal. He took one look at it and said, “Mom, I can’t. It looks like Cream of Wheat with warts!”

    I never touched it again…unless it was in cookies. 🙂
