jelly bean therapy


Sunday

MrM
Who ate all the jelly beans?
MrsM
I thought we shared everything
halfsy/halfsy?
MrM
That doesn't apply to jelly beans.


Monday

MrM
Oh! Lots of jelly beans!
MrsM
Leave them alone
They are mine!
MrM
I thought we shared everything
halfsy/halfsy?
MrsM
You said that didn't apply
to jelly beans.


The memory of MrM's disappointed face
remains with MrsM
as she carefully constructs her
her innovative analysis
of the vivid colour spectrum
of the neo-Impressionists.


When she has finished taking photos
MrsM selects her favourite colours
and then gives the rest to MrM
thereby demonstrating a courageous
deconstructionist response
to her artistic environment.


Apologies if you were expecting
a detailed exposition
of the history of my relationship to
'The Red Beach' by Matisse
or a profound statement on
the human struggle against adversity.

It's not that sort of blog.

  1. Oooooh, such a difficult internal battle: is regaining the moral upper hand worth giving up some of the jelly beans? I do not possess the self-control necessary to play the long game.

    Fortunately I do not like jelly beans so this issue never arises chez nous....

    Pausing for a moment to contemplate the artistic nature of confections and classics before sighing happily and sacrificing the jelly bean to the pleasures of the culinary experience. ;-)
