The title is taken from the writing prompt WP has decided to start sending me every day. That’s just what I need, more spam. You’d think that human wit could develop a system where someone with over 2,000 posts on their site, and a record of almost daily (though admittedly erratic) blogging didn’t get a writing prompt.
If it said “Write better!” 0r “Eat less!” I would accept it, but I rarely feel in need of a subject to write about. And I certainly never switch the computer on with the thought “I hope I have more spam waiting for me.” in my head.
The truth is that I have enough, including the annoying pop-up that pops up to remind me that for a reasonable sum of money I can buy something to stop annoying pop-ups.
Ironically, one of my top five grocery items is not Spam. I need bread, milk, margarine and marmalade. I’m not sure about the fifth. Beans? Bacon? Carrots? It’s difficult to think of a shopping list without them. Cheese?
It’s not as easy as it seems. The problem is that I need them all and if you buy them, you need pickle and parsnips too.
So many groceries, so little time.
Eggs . . .
The final list is bread, bacon, beans, margarine and marmalade. I will leave the pickle alone and can cut out milk as I forgot to order tea. The five things interlock nicely and, as an additional bonus, are also awesomely alliterative.
However, I have to point out that it is not a sensible way to eat and, if you were to follow this eating regime for too long you would probably develop scurvy, an a longing for variety.
I used a picture of cake, to remind myself of the need for a varied diet.
