This week Linda says our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “digest.”
At school, I never seemed to digest our reading material the way we were supposed to.
You could say I got the wrong end of the stick, or simply didn’t understand, but then the books we had to read at grammar school weren’t our own choices and from what I can remember, damn boring.
Then in biology we would learn how our bodies digest food, yet there are some foods that are not broken down and pass through our systems unchanged, such as sweetcorn and mushrooms! I don’t remember learning that bit at school!
That reminds me of the ex husband giving our dog left over spaghetti pasta and not telling me. I had a horrendous shock the following morning and thought she had passed hundreds of worms! He thought it was funny, but I wanted to smack him over the head and let him digest my anger!
