I eat my peas with honey
I've done it all my life
It makes the peas taste funny
But it keeps them on the knife!
As a way to encourage and amuse me, my dad recited this little poem when we had peas at dinner.
I was not a big fan of peas and buried them under mashed potatoes which eventually I handed under the table to my dog, Bootsie.
At long last as a joke, I was promised if I tried them with a bit of honey and each and every pea stuck to the knife I would be allowed to forgo peas forever! The hitch was I also had to eat them.
I accepted the challenge! Two peas out of a dozen stuck to the knife. I ate them with honey, gagged, and was to suffer peas as part of my diet forever!
