He stared. She stared back.
One donut left on the plate.
The race had begun.

I’ve know all about this 🙂
With a sister or brother? I have 4 siblings, and we used to take turns tormenting each other.

Haha! I’m the youngest of 6 kids. 5 girls and 1 boy 🙂
You definitely have me beat, Carisa! We are 3 girls and 2 boys. Bet there was a lot of girl drama!
Ummmm! Yes! I’m embarrassed to tell you something about my sisters. Please don’t judge me… Because it was me.
My ex husband and father of my oldest son is my married to my older sister. Yes! It about killed me. She will always and forever be my greatest heartbreak. But I have other sisters. I guess that’s the good thing of having a large family. 💕
I think I read an amazing poem of yours referencing this diabolical event! Well, some folks enjoy sloppy seconds, I guess (sorry; couldn’t resist! What a piggish thing a sister could ever do!). Yay for big families!! The support system can be quite amazing. Love to you, beautiful Carisa! xo
Yes! I have a (not so nice) poem up about her. I’ve only become stronger for it. Thank you for your beautiful words and support! You’re so beautiful inside and out. 💕❤️
Who got it!
The girl always wins; then she probably felt sorry for the bro and gave him half. But she never let him forget that she won! haha!!
Next year he will trip her the same way she did to win Ha ha ha.
We shall see! 🙂
By then he’ll have bigger feet. Bigger feet the harder they fall. lol
hahahaha!! Point well taken. Clever, you 😀
Ha ha ha That was a trip. No pun intended lol
Look at all those damn sprinkles! This image is exhuming bad memories…I should leave…no…look at those sprinkles! Look at them! Ahhh
Hmm. So terrible you can’t look away? You take photos of strawberries and sprinkles, and you don’t even like any of them? Come on! What do you like??
I know, I know: ask me what my favor car is…go on…ask me…
Your favorite car? Okay, what is it? I bet it’s something fast.
Okay okay….are you ready?…my favorite car…is…the one that works!!! Haha — I can’t believe you fell for that! \”/
Is that supposed to be funny? Because I’ll pretend to laugh so you don’t feel awkward. 😀 There.
Actually, I did think it was an odd question coming from you.
Ohhh it’s funny! You know it is. Feel free to use the joke at your next cocktail party.
The race for what?… high cholesterol?, arterial plaque?, chemical toxicity? I could have saved these children. What’s that… do I hear Satan calling your name? This is not a choice for children for they do not know the dark side of the donut!
I’m sorry, I was emotionally caught up in the moment. Couldn’t you have offered these children a better option like reading the poem, “The Wish” by Rose? (Did I just expose my dark side?)
A treat once in awhile is okay! You even say this on your blog. Satan always calls my name, the bastard! I write, then he leaves me alone for awhile. Lol. Yes, “The Wish” will be coming out soon as a children’s book… in the shape of an axe, of course!
I know you have a dark side. I’ve seen it, remember? 🙂
I don’t like donuts!
Haha. Just kidding. Love ’em.
Loved your Haiku too. 🍩
YUM! I grabbed that donut before anyone could. Thanks Alan 😀 xo
What?! I guess they are staring at each other, huh? haha! Wasn’t Clint Eastwood a hottie?
OH YES! A HOTTIE!
Hahha I ll win the race
I believe you would! 🙂
You’ve obviously changed “he” to “she” to protect my brother’s identity, but this poem is clearly based on my childhood. Love it.
Oh, funny! I bet you have him beat in brains and beauty. 🙂
Well, in those competitions I was certainly in the top two. I sometimes beat him at Monopoly, though. (I moved my piece when he wasn’t looking.)
Sounds really specially.. 😊
Thank you — very special 🙂
Thank you too.. 😊
The fair way to resolve is to have sibling A cut the donut in half and then sibling B choose who gets which half. Of course, I am assuming that sibling A can be trusted with a knife …
Lmao! Very good, Mel 🙂 xo
