Like Vinegar for Coffee (A Little Ditty on Aging )




I was in the throes of making potato salad,
when I realized there was no vinegar.
Out of vinegar? I’m NEVER out of vinegar!
How could I be completely out of vinegar?

Oh yeah, I used it to clean the coffee pot.
But, if I knew good and well it was gone,
why didn’t I add it to the grocery list?
THAT question, I haven’t an answer for.

I’d like believe it was stress, or something.
Certainly, it cannot be some precursor
for the hideousness of advancing age.
I’m sorry, what were we talking about?

Oh well, never mind. It doesn’t matter.
Mmmm. The coffee tastes great today.
Must be the clean pot. That reminds me…
I need to buy more vinegar.
