Now Here’s A Challenge…


Chitterlings – definition: 1) a ruffled frill on the front of a shirt. 2) a food dish made from port intestines: also, chitlins

I’m setting a challenge today…if you so choose to participate. Use both definitions in the same short story or poem! I’ve pondered for a while and this is the result.

Dressed in ruffled frill

Ebony jacket and trousers

Paired with shiny shoes

A dashing image made

**

A classy restaurant

Candle-lit and romantic

First date, first impressions

Nervously waiting

**

Her shapely figure before him

A friendly smile

And chased kiss upon his cheek

Candle flicker

**

Menu’s pondered

Surprise at her choice

Chitterlings

Agreement to taste

**

Plates served

 Perfectly presented cuisine

Small bite tasted

Unexpectedly good

**

Her gentle laughter

And statement of soul food

Calmed his nerves

A great first date

  1. Chatterin’ with grin on chin and food on spoon the ambivalous groom ignores his bride and lacks the pride to show her off — instead, he’s just a big show off himself. The discontent on new bride’s face turns to smug as new groom’s spoon collides with mug and chintlins depart from utensil destined to mouth and land upon his front and now his pride is ruffled like the garment. 🙂
