It would be a pleasure to feed you tonight but Paris is burning and the mood is sour. Still, I’ll try.
Coming up, plenty of goodies in images for Patti who called “delicious” for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, but first – let’s call it a dramuscule, a poem compiled from sentences about food that various people, including me, have uttered in the course of my life, starting early.
Oh, also, it’s half time in NaPoWriMo. It’s been a pleasure taking part and reading others. Let’s roll into the second half.
For tomorrow I’m planning a bit of a recap and the announcement of my favourite participants. Something you don’t know about me yet: I’m keeping track.
Challenge 15: “Write your own dramatic monologue. … Try to create a sort of specific voice or character that can act as the ‘speaker’ of your poem, and that could be acted by someone reciting the poem.”
For this we will need approximately ten voices.
“Here is your granddaughter,
fatten her up a bit.”
“What would you like for dinner?”
“Same again, grandma.”
“Ohh, aren’t you cute,
such a healthy, fat child!”
“One does not speak with one’s mouth full.”
“How do you mean, you don’t like tomatoes?”
“You are playing with your food,
while in Africa black babies are starving.” *
“What did you have for lunch?”
“I don’t know.” **
“What would you like for dessert?
We have cake, panna cotta, pie, crostata.”
“Yes, please.” ***
“What would you like for dinner: pasta or meat?”
“Would you like some more?”
“Take another piece.”
“Have some more.”
“What would you like to eat when you come home?”
“What did we say for dinner?”
* My words to my sister when little. I was terrible.
** My uncle's usual response to this question.
He is the leanest in our family despite all the beer.
*** My father's usual response to the list of desserts.
Here is the last year or so in food photos from here and there, Italy and Slovenia, as is my habit. Buon appetito and have a delicious time.
If you want even more goodies, here are four food photo compilations from previous blogs:
