Bagel Popples

by Maureen Glaude

“bagel popples”
my words kept coming out
during dinner at my friends'

to me, Julie and Bill
it betrayed my too soon felt fill
from a little red Merlot
in their giant goblets
with the session of unwinding
by the stereo

after my repeated fumbles
with the spoken word
compounded by our giggles
and confusion
I gave up
but found it much easier
come morning
to inform them of
a friend’s brand new litter
of beagle puppies
I’d heard about


Author's Note: I'm on the right site because I'm a "pathetically" cheap drunk, he he. You should have seen us get into the board word games after supper. Some we had to save, for another sleep-over visit.

I bet this has happened to us all at one time or another and can be the best of fun when it happens. Thanks for sharing this one with us.

A humorous look at one of the foibles of the human condition. Reminds me--for some alocohol is a deadly poison (that is the prohibitionist in me that has to say that--LOL!)

So funny! This gave a such a good laugh. I'll just live vicariously through your experience, since I leave the grapes alone. Good work!
