If you want to be the
Queen of the Covered Dish,
which has its merits and does not involve a swimsuit competition
or twirling fire batons,
take a ham.
I realized this when I put a pencil to it.
Here are the choices:
Drive to Wal Mart to purchase ingredients for a moderately priced but allegedly delicious casserole.
Become distracted in the spray paint department with a new variety of metallic gold spray paint . Put 2 cans in your basket.
After all Christmas is right around the corner.
Push your basket through the garden department and spot miniature pots of succulents- your latest obsession.
Place three in your basket.
Cruise past the magazine aisle and spot all of the new Christmas magazines.
Grab one and throw it in your basket.
Decide its time to head toward the grocery department.
Locate your ingredients and head to the checkout counter.
Ask yourself how a simple casserole could cost $42.00.
Drive to Wal Mart.
Find a small to medium sized spiral sliced ham .
Put it in your basket.
Head to the checkout counter and pay the $20(ish)
Head home with a self satisfied smile on your face.
Locate your crown and put it on.
