The Monday Peeve #32

Most nights I like to enjoy a small bowl of ice cream (my only vice late in life).

Unexpected while waiting for the remainder of the container designed to look

I awoke near midnight (way too late to indulge in ice cream).

Some was melted – separated from a blob – a strange sight before my eyes.

I  placed the container in the kitchen sink and unbelievable the next morn

little had changed  – the blob was soft yet still a blob.

What happened to the name brand that once melted when the temperature


To think I’ve been consuming this dairy treat which contains preservatives

leaves me with an uneasy feeling.

So much for name brands and their higher prices!
