greater than.


that moment

when you go to the grocery

to get some ice

for your food

after a wild and windy rainstorm

knocked your power out

 you pull out your bags of ice

only to find

a secret ice cream stash

placed there by a brilliant grocery worker

hidden for later

and your day is made.

  1. Maybe it wasn’t an employee. Maybe the ice company has started a new rewards program. Free ice cream with every tenth bag of ice. Like the prize in a cereal box. You always make my day with your posts, Beth!

  2. Ha! That’s too funny, Beth. We had quite a hail storm yesterday. There were several bags worth of that kind of ice all over the yard. Of course here in the high desert, it melted fast. I hope all is well in your world by now. Hugs on the wing!
