Daily Prompt: Seconds

Describe the most satisfying meal you’ve ever eaten, in glorious detail. 

When I was three, I had to have my tonsils removed for the first time. They were swollen so badly that my throat was almost swollen shut. Needless to say, I could not or would not eat out drink much of anything before they took them out.

I remember the nurse bringing my first meal in after surgery. I could have kissed her. She had a tray full of Popsicles, sherbet and a nasty bowl of greasy chicken broth.

The Popsicle was my favorite. It was cherry, so cold, delicious, and made my throat feel so good. The sherbet was the perfect follow-up. It was tangy and delightful. I had never had a Neapolitan version of sherbet. But WOW! It was incredible. It made my throat feel so good or either I was just flat-out hungry enough to eat a horse. I loved every yummy spoonful. I never touched the broth…….salty, greasy, nasty, YUCK.

It might have had something to do with the pain medication I was given as well. I polished off the Popsicle and sherbet quickly, when I informed I could all I wanted. Once I discovered the nurses had an endless supply of cherry popsicles, it was over. I drove them nuts.

When I was three outpatient surgery did not exist. You spent a week in the hospital for almost everything.

By my discharge date, I had a permanent red circle around my lips. Those Popsicles were the most delicious meal I had ever been served. To date, I cannot turn down a cherry Popsicle and I prefer sherbet to regular ice cream. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. I guess, the two delectable treats being served as a meal, has added them to my list comfort foods. They are probably be my first comfort foods.
