Rumored to be apocryphal, it was the honest truth.
A man named Mr. Goodbar married Baby Ruth.
With lives eerily congruous, it was no surprise.
The fact that they were sweethearts? Impossible to disguise.
He was a little brittle and she was a little nuts,
but still they loved each other—with no ands or buts.
It was such a juicy story that she found him oh so dapper,
and he could barely wait to see what was beneath her wrapper!
After they were married, we were sure there’d be no maybes
that with no delay they’d be producing Sugar Babies!!


Word prompts for the day are eerie, elucidate, apocryphal, congruous and juice.

      Oh Mr. Bump, I’m going to have to reconsider my otherwise positive attitude toward you. You don’t like Hershey’s??? My favorite chocolate in the world. Yes, they are all candy bars of my youth. A silly poem. Just blame the prompts…

        I guess the Mars family of products are the same here, but I can’t remember anything else being the same. On the contrary, at least if you visited here you’d be able to get hold of your favourite chocolate. 🤣 And I’m sure you’d have no problem with shops running out of stock either, ‘cos I can’t imagine anyone else eating the stuff 🤣🤣🤣

            Just these last 6 months, wife has lost about 20lbs on something called Michael Mosely diet.

            I always used to prefer dark chocolate (preferably French) but my taste buds changed and I now like milk. But I’m diabetic so if I have some, it’s, like, a quarter ounce.

              Yup – Fast 800.
              I don’t take much note but I think it was low carb. I know years ago she had some success with the Atkins DSiet as well. She tends to crash diet then gradually put it back on.

          You know Hershey’s and Mars are two different companies, right? I like Hershey’s because it is a darker chocolate. With almonds, even better. Why am I talking so much about candy? Probably because I can’t have any of it right now…

    Loved your take on the word! I tried too and it’s nice to see how different people can come up with different posts based on the same word! 🙂
