    I remember one time, when i was child, and my Mother had sent me to the store to buy some grits.

    The store was at the corner of our block, The Pink Store, and i eventually worked there during high school ... but in an effort not to digress ...

    I went and bought the grits as my Mother wanted, and when we opened them, there was a worm inside.

    My Mother was so outdone, and immediately sent me back with the grits, to get our money back.

    The man at the store said to me ... "You got meat with your grits, you should be happy."

    He gave me the money back of course ... but i've always remembered him saying that.

    Is there a moral to this story ... iono ... :look:

    Love Yall!

    :heart:

    it's an old joke,about a prisoner getting a roach in his food and when he complained the cook said not to complain becuase the others would get mad that he had meat,bad joke i know but i'm guessing the store manager was trying to diffuse his embarassment with humor.

    Oh my goodness, now seeing a worm in something I had my mouth ready to eat would have really messed me up. Just imagine the people who have accidently ate those worms because they didn't see them. :uhh:

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Real Truth!



    Sister Destee,

    Most posters speak for me and made great statements. Though I like bacon or sauage, on the side, with my grits, butter and toast is a must; actually, grits are good by themselves...would be the moral, they don't need worms, bacon or sausage, lol...Peace In my sister friend.

    Grits...YUM! Well, I've had some nasty surprises in unexpected foods myself and to say the least it turned my appetite! Though, I typically like sugar and butter in my grits! :)
