"Ma'am, I'm not going to taste that pickle."
"Where's your manager, you rude young man? These pickles have gone bad. They've lost their sour."
He wiped his glasses and looked at the jar.
"Those'r bread and butter pickles."
"The nerve, selling me bad pickles!"
The inspiration for this 55 comes from a jar of Mt. Olive Baby Kosher Dill pickles that I picked up at Wal Mart. I have been craving the Mt. Olive Kosher Baby Dills with Texas Pete chilies.
I picked up the wrong jar, which was OK. But I took a bite into my pickle and...nothing...it had lost its sour. It has lost that awesome dill pickle flavor that I LOVE. I shook my half eaten baby dill at my husband and said "taste this". He said, " I am not tasting your pickle". Pickle lovers, beware! You might just get a jar of bad pickles! And you know, when you NEED a pickle, that can be devastating. How the hell am I supposed to eat a tuna sandwich without a pickle?
Hmph. First World problems, right...
Look at my side bar there...to the right...see...The Popcorn Fharmacy here in Oklahoma City has a fantastic selection of flavored popcorn. I recommend their Dill Pickle flavored popcorn HIGHLY. They will ship an order, so click on the link and get you a yummy bagful of their mmm mmm good dill pickle popcorn. I also recommend their Vanilla Butternut and Butter Rum! Now I am making myself crave popcorn.
Thank you, G-Man, for being a most excellent Friday Flash Fiction 55 host! xoxoxo, (pickle breath and all!)
