Just eat it
“Just eat it”
The MJJC Blog story
Written by DAZ… Inspired by MJ…
“It’s five thirty…” she spoke seriously.
“Oh yeah” he sighed and took one sandwich.
He took a bite but his face changed into disgust…
Yuck, what did she put on it… lubricate?
It made him shudder as he did swallow and
he threw the half eaten sandwich on the plate…
“Was it NOW? “ she scolded him like a mum.
“It’s your favorite… Strawberry jelly? “
“I’ll eat it later” he tried to squeeze him out of it.
“No, you’re NOT… I’m waiting” she scolded him,
standing there like mother superior with
her hands lodged in her hips…
Having the ‘don’t you mess with me, young man’ look
all over her face…
It made him sigh…
He hated that she pushed him like that but…
in the back of his mind, he knew she did it for his own sake…
Being out in the ER with a needle stuck in your veins
cause your body quit was NOT a pleasant experience but
then yet again, he would never get the hang of it
that ‘nutrition’ is just as important as creating…
She remained there standing like a ‘matron’
out to scold the little stubborn boy so
he nibbled at the sandwiches and swallowed them like
it was the worst thing he ever ate…
“Okay… I brought you some juice too…”
she shoved the glass in his hands.
“Remember what happens when you don’t drink or eat? “
“Yeash, thank you Honey…” he only answered and
drank the red juice like a good boy…
“Are you gonna feed Patrick? “
He looked at her with quilt written all over his face.
“I’m… Hmmmm… “ he noticed her stern look and
he didn’t dare to protest or even utter the word ‘busy’ anymore.
“Ehmm… Yeah… Yeah”
I know that his son was all he ever dreamt of but…
HOW could he quiet those ‘inner demons’ in him?
Always singing, always talking,
They sculpted him into the man he was today…
He could NOT shut them up, right?
