Her perfume still lingers

Ingredients: Pork, water, modified stuff, some preservative stuff, sugar, etc.   Perfect!

Single Serving Spam – this was the answer; a blue envelope with a single slice of Spam inside. Reading more of the label, I found out that a single serving is only 250 calories of which only 200 of those are fat calories.  That is good isn’t it?

Paying the nice young man for my bread and blue envelope, I walked to the parking lot.  Once in my car, I could not wait.  I tore open the blue envelope, “unwired” the bread and pulled two flimsy pieces of cheap Georgia white bread out of the bag.  Squeezing the blue envelope, the single serving slice of Spam slid onto the white bread.   I topped it off with the other slice of bread and ate it slowly.

Eating the Spam sandwich, I sat looking at the Kmart sign and the store seemed to wink at me.  This rendezvous away from the interstate traffic was the right thing do; the smell of her perfume still lingers in my car.

Actually, that’s the leftover shiny blue envelope that the single serving of Spam was in.
