The problem with peanut butter


morning
bare feet on stairs
sparse pickings in refrigerator
small piece of bread in cupboard
jar of peanut butter.
peanut butter on toast
tea with milk
problem
mouth sticks together
can hardly eat
too early for this.

There are no problems with peanut butter - food of the gods! You are just eating the wrong kind.

Ahem. I eat the same kind you have been eating...

There are multiple problems with peanut butter--roof sticking for beginners, but no problem with how you express this with such a sense of mornings with scant frig offerings. Enjoyed.
