Prompt Nine: Peanut Butter And Jelly

Peanut Butter and Jelly

 

Only Daddy made it so good. Did he create this deliciousness?

I know Mom bought the Wonder Bread, the Jif Smooth Peanut Butter and Jelly.

 

Mom was not bad with the sandwich. But Daddy, his tasted creamier.

No, Daddy could not make lasagna the way Mom did. He wouldn’t dare.

But no one, on earth, past or present has ever made a PB and J like him.

 

It has been years and years, still I do not remember it so good.

Maybe Daddy just was more generous with the Jif; not concerned of calories.

 

Mom was always on a diet. Always going to a meeting with Weight Watchers.

Except when she made her lasagna or potato salad. Those were great meals..

 

Only Daddy made it so good. Did he create this deliciousness?

His recipe, if one could call it that, was perfect. More jam or that he created it?

 

It has been years and years, still I do not remember it so good.

In the long run, it must be the love. The feeling of someone taking care.

The one’s not letting you die or starve. And giving you such sweetness.

 

Daddy made his peanut butter and jelly goodness for me. My memories are fond.

As for lasagna, and potato salad, they are definitely Mom’s domain, and not mine.
