FABULOUS FINISHES #4
By Judy Cox
After the cat falls fast asleep and it’s safe to sneak out of his hidey-hole, this little mouse goes out in search of food. When he spots a teensy-tiny, toothsome, green pea he knows “One will be a feast for me.”
However, with eyes bigger than his stomach he doesn’t stop there, stacking a cranberry, an olive, a carrot stick, mashed potatoes, gravy, pumpkin pie with fluffy cream, and finally, the platter of turkey on top of each other, until he finds himself eye to eye with the cat. In a slipping, sliding instant, mouse skids to a stop, causing the turkey to crash down on the cat. The mouse manages to escape to his hidey-hole, but he no longer has his feast, until, he spies that one teensy-tiny, round and toothsome, green and luscious pea. “Give thanks. One is a feast for me!”
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your feast. And if you find that your eyes are bigger than your stomach, don’t stack – it usually doesn’t work out so well.
