“Always Check your Pockets for Couscous”


Lunchtime today, I decided to make one of those packaged couscous mixes……

Thinking it was similar to the rice pilaf mixes where the box contains the spice and the grain packets, I tore open the box and without checking, turned it over……

That’s right……..no inner packets……

Half the box of couscous landed on the floor……

I salvaged what I could out of the box and made lunch….then left to visit my grandchild…

My grandbeagle Zora was especially interested in me this afternoon…..

While holding the baby, I realized why……

My sweater had large patch pockets in front…..

Inside my right pocket, was a mound of couscous…….

Only me………

My daughter laughed that I came prepared to feed birds….

My tip of the night……

Always check your pockets for couscous……

Unless you intend to communicate with a flock of wild birds…….


Namaste and Good Evening…..
