Welp! It’s Sunday.
What If …
What if you didn’t like cornbread
What if you didn’t like fried chicken, yams, and greens.
What if you didn’t like potato salad with mustard and sliced eggs on top with a sprinkle of paprika
Or, okra and some string beans with baby potatoes nestled inside the pot.
What if you didn’t like peach cobbler with burnt edges and sweet potato pie.
What if you didn’t like the melted butter that seeped into the crevices of your biscuits and mellow grits.
What the hell if?
What if you didn’t like kool-Aide so sweet it made you pucker.
What if you didn’t like the creak of your grandmother’s old refrigerator.
What if …
What if you didn’t like touching elbows with yo’ cousin at the dinner table and yo’ uncle smacking
What if you didn’t like sausages and bacon frying in the same skillet. Eggs scrambled or fried hard
Syrup dripping off your chin
