OPINION: I Really Wasn’t Crazy About the Look of the Little Potatoes This Morning

I really wasn’t crazy about the look of the little potatoes this morning. It’s too bad because that’s a part of my day that I really look forward to.

The little potatoes that shook Lurv to his core.

I won’t say eating my little potatoes is the first thing I do in the morning. Usually, I check out my computer signals and how the glue on my latest model rocket has dried overnight and maybe dump my sheets in the wash basin for Mom. But then I head right out to the buffet- get a big helping of little potatoes and a juice and sit down and look at The News.

I stood over the little potatoes for at least ten minutes today. Something was wrong, I knew it but I don’t think I wanted to know it. As time passed, I could see that the texture was all off. The colors seemed enhanced– they were almost too yellow. And those tongs just thrown in there. That’s the first time I’ve seen that from the Islanders that run the place. You don’t usually see the tongs until you order. But this time, they were just kind of lounging there petulantly. The scene was all off and I didn’t like it.

I asked if they had another pan of little potatoes but the Islander didn’t understand me. He kept pointing to the tongs and I had to finally look away. I know they probably had another pan in the back but I felt, somehow, that they would be exactly the same. That today was just a cursed day. And so I left.

I just couldn’t get over the look of the little potatoes this morning.
