From todays prompt:
We received a warm welcome, and a lovely raw food dinner.
“Salad in winter’s unthinkable!” my dad would’ve jibed.
“Ar least there’s no meat!” my daughter giggled, in a whisper,
as we shuffled our way along the slowed buffet line.
“There’s all you can eat, and plenty more!”
our hostess chimed in delight at the numbers,
but I so would have liked my food leaving me warmed
and much quicker relief of my numbness…
