At Wegmans one day
I overheard two ladies,
one older than me
and one taller than me,
both slimmer than me,
talking about squash

Although I wasn't
part of that earnest discussion,
and I certainly didn't particularly
want to be older,
I found some squash
and brought them home.

I went online
to look for a recipe,
wondering if they
contained some magical
ability that would
make me taller
and slimmer.

They really didn't
make me slimmer
but I stood a little taller
the next time, at Wegmans,
when I was able to
participate in an
earnest discussion
about squash
