Things to Say

While scarfing it gone:
“You can have some, too.”

While biting a golden plum:
“Ooh, a golden plu-uhmm.
I wonder what it’ll taste like.
Oh, a yellow tomato.  Here.”

While biting a purple plum:
“So juicy, with such sour skin”;
show how you carefully hollowed it out
so the skin hangs like tent flaps.

In between sips of your pineapple drink:
“This hurts my tongue”; “Ouch”…

While doing your second doggy paddle:
I’m swimm–(COUGH!)–ing.”

Before breaking the device:
“I can fix this anytime it breaks.”

While, about to take a different route,
being asked to go to the bridge–
“and jump?”
