THEY THINK I NEED SWEETENING UP:

THEY THINK I NEED SWEETENING UP:
 
Each week I phone my grocery list,
To be delivered the next day.
As I have no transport,
This is an easy way.
 
This week I ran out of sugar,
So requested a medium size.
I only use it in a cup of coffee,
But couldn't believe my eyes.
 
They sent this enormous bag,
As you can see above.
It will take to Christmas to finish,
Too much sugar I don't love.
 
They must think I need sweetening up,
Is the thought that came to mind.
When I unpacked my groceries,
And this huge bag I did find.
 
It appears it is a catering business size.
Well folk here there's only me.
I use four teasponns daily.
In my two cups of coffee.
 
So if you run out of sugar,
And the shops are shut.
Pay me a visit.
I'll gladly give you a cup.
 
HAPPY WEEK-END TO ALL:

  1. How nice of you Yvonne! Mindful though sugar is bad for health. Cut off sugar just plain mineral water one will never go wrong. Nutrition can be taken in other forms!

  2. It would take us years to use that much sugar since we use Splenda in almost everything.

  3. Ha, ha. That is a huge bag of sugar. Sort of like what I buy. Not for me but for the hummingbirds. I mix up their nectar myself, and it takes a lot of sugar.
