In Other Words, gobble


Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word gobble


Mum spent hours in the kitchen preparing the dinner and this year she was going all out to not only to feed us all but impress us with her cooking prowess.

There was every form of vegetable baked and or boiled to perfection.

She called us to the table and we stood agape at the plates she had for each of us.

As was the practice in our family it was eat everything as quickly as you could then there might be seconds.

Mum was disgusted with us as we gobbled our plates clean not stopping for a second to savour her efforts.

    So true of many! Hours of preparation and gobbled up in seconds.

    That’s no way to eat. Can’t possibly enjoy all the subtle flavours. Every mouthful should be savoured. The saying, “Stop and smell the roses” applies to a baked dinner too.

    I think it is the same for every Mom. No one says much about the good food but let one less than great meal be served and everyone has something to say. Maybe your story made someone say thank you. Thanks for sharing.

    The appreciation can follow later 🙂
