The Flight of the Humble Pea – ;-)

“Oh, not peas again!” Daniel gave a forlorn plea as his Mother placed a big bowl of them on the dinner table.

“Yes, Dear, peas. You always balk at them, but they are full of vitamin c, so I want to see you put plenty on your plate”

When she walked out of the room again, his Sister gave him a sly look.

“Yes, Daniel, you should give peas a chance,” She said, in an adorable bit of wordplay.

Then she gave a yelp as her brother pulled back his fork and fired several peas at her.

The flight of the peas bounced off of her head and a few rolled along the dining room floor and into the kitchen.

“Daniel!” Screamed their Mother. They were like this every Sunday when they came round for dinner. You wouldn’t have thought they were now both grown-ups!

The End

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. 😂😂😂 I am a peas lover myself! I long for whirled peas, but still haven’t seen it.
    The flight of the humble peas sounds like something that would happen at my house.😉

    I love this, Kristian! Thanks for giving me a giggle!💕

  2. I LOVE THIS! The title is so catchy, and the story is more truth than poetry, I imagine 🙂 Side note, I didn’t realize peas were rich in Vit C. The only way I really like them is smothered in cream sauce with little potatoes 🙂
