A Plea for Food Surprises to Stop

50 WORD MICROFICTION

Thrifty Words Challenge #5: Calamity

Illustration by author.

I bought bulgar wheat from the shop and do you know what it tasted of? Laundry detergent.

Weeks later, different store, Cinnamon Grahams, same thing — Laundry detergent.

Yesterday I bought vegan caramel wafers, you know what they taste of? GARLIC!

Why is this happening to me?

PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!


This is actually a 50-word micro truth because this calamity is ruining all my days at the moment and the only way I can feel even remotely better about this truly awful situation is to share my pain with you all. Thank you.
