                             Minute Rice Redux

 

Does a man’s heart beat like the sound of rice thrown at a wedding of sorrows, only to find that they no longer throw rice at weddings anymore? Because tiny little birds swoop down, eat the rice, and then explode, raining down tears of wasted lives and lousy choices.

So then, he opts for confetti, but that’s surefire indigestion across the board.

So, it’s simple, really. It’s back to the rice, only this time, don’t invite birds to your wedding.

And even though I prefer Jasmine or Basmati, only Minute Rice will really fit the bill, because in the Bigger Picture, in less than a minute, in the blink of an eye, we’re here, and then gone....

Those rice throwing occasions certainly don't always work out.
But certainly, good or bad, gone within a blink of time's eye
I will eat rice of most any type, in most any configuration, but most especially as pudding
Tapioca is also a heavy draw, possibly, birds don't explode on tapioca?
Beat Holiday Wishes.

Sometimes sorrow is fleeting. And sometimes it just hangs around. That's worse. But what's really fl.. read more
Oh, this is just wonderful! Minute Rice...sort of describes fleeting joy, fleeting moments, fleeting life. No, they don't throw rice at weddings anymore. Many blow bubbles...which pop much like relationships might. I enjoyed this one so much. Lydi**
