    Without handkerchief ? : ) .I remember your onion poems. I love liver and onion cooked in olive oil and red wine,otherwise with lemon- pepper and lemon juice,or with bacon and beef gravy,or even with honey and beer. : ) . A poem that makes us hungry.

    I love liver and onions if it is cooked right. I'm in the minority in my family so as a result I haven't had it for years. Congrats on your win, Ruben! Love, Kim

    Oh, how I detest this dish, but I really liked how you did it. When I say that I eat with a handkerchief, It implies that I am going to spit it out and politely dispose of it. Was this your meaning (saying you could at least digest it when your mom had cooked it?) I was not sure if you meant it that way! But if so, it's super clever. Congrats.

    Please don't give much weight to my opinion. I am serious. Especially because the first time I read this, I was sleep deprived, and now, I got like a full 8 hrs sleep the evening before. Now, I'm sleeping late again. Totally unreliable with my yoyo sleep pattern. I'm just thinking 'aloud', wondering why reading this kinda niggled at me.

    Ah I see you changed the 2nd part after the conjunction (I used a big word, 'conjunction' I will pretend I used it correctly, need to review my parts of sentences) I do think it gives a better story than from the first one that I read. Pls don't hate me, I think it still lacks something? I like how it leaves for open interpretation, but 'them' used 2x in a line might be too much? I checked out Andrea's contest--that's a toughie, I don't think I can squeeze in a moving memory in 1 line >.o!

    You were eating something like peanut butter and jelly, while mom was preparing liver and onions!!! because you didn't want to go hungry lol Love it :D

    many people do not like liver and onions, but all i can say is that they must not have had them prepared correctly. yum, yum. love and hugs, catie :)

    Wait. One last. Before I go. Maybe this is a sneaky attempt to reserve a spot for a contest and this will morph into something else by sundown. Yup... you got me. Add the categories that you filed this under 'firework' and 'passion'-- haha, definitely a sneaky move. Sorry I truly tend to overthink most times. This is no exception. That's why I strive to not be active here too much, less avenues for being wordy and overthinking. NOW>

    ok, sorry my brain's asleep....why don't I get this at all???? I got intrigued with the title. but I am at.a.loss. Is this a cryptic message or something?? I'm almost tempted to try to decode this for some deeper meaning. I was excited to read something new from you and I get liver and onions. Or haha. Is that the main point??? For your readers? But I find liver and onions bearable. Can be good for you. Onion-- the wonder bulb.
