A Senryu For You

29 Aug

Writer’s Island prompt: if only.  I speak from bitter experience.

If Only…

…I had checked the sauce
bottle top was fastened tight
before I shook it…

    Yes, yes. Though it’s even worse with tomato ketchup!
    I’m glad you’ve lightened the tone.

      Thanks! It was done accidentally but I like it so it stayed.

    Oooh, I have been there! 🙂

    Adding ketchup (along with Viv), salad dressing, salt and pepper shakers to the mix!

    I’m replying back over here! Thanks for your comment, but I *did* find a place locally that had the HP sauce! We had a nice little “British Shoppe” open up last year and I’ve already been in several times to get my beloved HP!

      I’m so glad. The advertising line here is that ‘HP makes a bacon sandwich’ but HP makes any meal complete, I find.

    Many people have been there. Mine was Teriyaki sauce as I was cooking one day. Bottle caps aren’t the safest things anymore, LOL! Wonderful post!

    Ooooh, I know what HP sauce is… we’ve all made that mistake, LOL.

    I love ketchup, and I love haiku (and senryu)! 😉

    p.s. we’re holding a haiku contest if anyone is interested (see link).

    It’s nice to know I’m not the only divvy on the block! If I read your comments correctly, there are an awful lot of dirty walls out there.

    haha (not laughing at, but with you 🙂 ) – I have been there, boy, have I been there!

      I think we could start a support group 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
