The Anniversary

Prompt  ….

PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson

Aron warmed a Totino’s Pizza (bread crusted with cheesy intentions), poured a glass of Urban Platter (red wine salad dressing) and sat down on the floor for his dinner. He looked at the watch he had gifted to Betty and nostalgia flooded his throat – it tasted like bile.

He sat reminiscing the last time he had such a meal.  He had lived on similar food for a year …… till Betty decided to walk out of his life exactly a year ago.

The anniversary should be a factual reminder of those days ….. he thought.

  1. Such a bitter anniversary. I think this is one he needs to stop marking. Love the asides in parentheses – red wine salad dressing etc. They added to the desperate and sad feel of the piece.

  2. It is strange how our mood can affect what we eat. So often when spirits are at zero, we will take the line of least resistance; satiating hunger pangs with anything allowing hand to mouth action. Perhaps it is the infant in all of us that craves oral comfort.

I love arguments
