Country Gravy

with 10 comments

On an impulse buy I bought eleven pounds of sausage.

After weeks of making every dish I could think of that called for the deliciousness of pork product, (and some that did not) I got down to “just a little left”.

I awoke this morning and decided to make my favorite breakfast of all time, biscuits and gravy.

I opened the cupboard and found a package of gravy mix. Much to my surprise the “powder” had expired just shy of seven years prior. “Oh well,” I thought, “going to store is out of the question. That would require wearing pants!”

When I awoke in the hospital bed a nurse asked me, “How are you feeling?”

To which I replied, (in song):

If I cared where I was going

Then I’d care when I arrived

If when I got there was important

Then I’d take over and drive

If all the people passing me really did matter

Then I wouldn’t have eaten seven year old spice and flour

Egg On,

The answer to last week’s riddle was, “because they’re too tired, (or two tired)” which grasps desperately at the pun of two tires. The triumphant return of Claire, (or Tracy) yields a strong play for domination, but alas she must share her winnings with CLT and Scott. Please enjoy your own package of severely expired country gravy mix!

Tonight’s riddle:

What black and white and black and white and black and white and black and white…?
