Wife desired some Japanese

     Sushi if you please

          Seaweed wrapped 'round octopus

               Pickled ginger plus

                    Some mackerel raw

                         Salmon jaw


Placed No. 3 in Gwendolen Rix's "Fast Food Epulaeryu" Contest - May 2011

    Didn't know sushi could even be a fast food type til my son showed me recently. I love how it all began with your wife's request. You have a flare of gentleman's manners in this write. I was hoping and praying the last line for you was NOT gonna be BARF or SPIT! lol. U are a good sport. Thanks for participating in this contest. Great work. Gwendolen
