Cheeto on the Ground

Cheeto on the Ground

A Story by D. Connolly
"

An age old question that no one wants to talk about

"

I just dropped a Cheeto on the ground.

No one saw it

No one sees anything I do in here; I always shut my door. 

The music bothers them

From country to classic to classical to gangster rap to just weird stuff that no one knows except me and the artist

It's my own personal mix

Jam's A La Dani

Thanks Pandora, for understanding

So.... about this Cheeto

I'm out of Cheetos, see

I've eaten the last of them

The only things left are Twizzlers, which I'm not in the mood for

And gum

Not for eating

The floor has been vacuumed

And it's in a spot under the desk where my feet don't go

It's probably clean

Maybe a little dusty

But I can blow it off, right?

I'm negotiating with myself right now

It's not that I'm hungry

I just really like Cheetos

And like I said, I'm out

This is the last one

I'll have to investigate

Damn.  Right into a dust ball

I knew the cleaning company wasn't being thorough

But how can I approach the subject

Without letting on that I'm trying to eat this Cheeto off of the floor?

Well, it appears to be ruined anyway

Into the bin you go

OK, I'm not a sore loser, I can accept it

You win this round, delicious Cheeto

This is funny & astute. First, let me tell you my old saying: "In my house, pet hair is a condiment!" Whether or not I eat dropped food depends on how much pet hair is on it. I don't mind dirt or germs, but the hair kinda has a yukky mouth-feel to it. Secondly, your message can apply to people, as well. In our society, it seems so much easier & more convenient to throw people away rather than to help them dust off their dust balls. Nice bit of playful pondering *wink! wink!*

Yeah, I certainly have. About the only tasty thing I didn't try to rescue was that three-quarters of Snicker bar I accidentally guillotined from my mouth while taking a pee at a urinal. Nope, can't help you, poor little candy bar.
If karma does its job, your next bag of Cheetos will contain one extra.

I think we all have that inner debate whenever food hits the floor if it's still salvageable. This reminded me of a time I made bagels, just put cream cheese on annnnnd dropped them. Unfortunately they flipped on the way down and I thought to myself " why couldn't they have just landed cheese side up?" haha. Suffice to say, I made another batch. Thanks for sharing this comedic write.

'To eat or not to eat, that is the question ? ' ( I would )

A probing, poetic conundrum, thoughtfully penned with concern aplenty!
