OK….you somewhat have to be a GUBA (Grew Up Born Again) to play this game, but for those of us steeped in the Christian culture from Pampers to Depends, one of the games we used to play as a kid (along with “Let’s Baptize Some Cats in the Wading Pool) was, “What do you hope we’ll be able to eat in heaven?“
This is actually a “christianized” version of “If you were on death row, what would you order for your last meal?”
But there are some earthly treats (most of which are almost CERTAINLY not going to be found in the Promisedland Publix) that I’m really hoping are still available when we throw off these corruptible shells.
So today’s “Listomania!” (you didn’t think I could stay “serious” for two consecutive lists, did you?) follows:
What I Hope is on the Menu at the “Marriage Supper of the Lamb”
1. Sweet tea and lemon followed by Cuban Coffee
2. “Mickey D’s” Quarter Pounders with Cheese and McRibs (Yep, I wrote it and I’m NOT ashamed of it.)
3. Fried chicken (which will be the final evidence that Baptists were right about almost everything, because you don’t want to get between a Baptist and fried chicken)
4. Julie’s Potato Salad (if I could get her to package that and sell it, I’d be living on Palm Beach)
5. Creme’ Brulee and Flan (I know that sounds sissified, but don’t knock it if you haven’t tried it.)
6. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (with the option of making them into a DQ Blizzard)
7. Asparagus (No, I’m NOT joking. I LOVE asparagus.)
8. Steak — Medium rare, bright pink, corn-fed, mid-western beef, any cut will do. (I’m guessing there’s not going to be any fresh meat in heaven, but it doesn’t hurt to dream.)
9. South Carolina Peaches — (particularly from near McBee, the kind that are so juicy that when you bite down on them, the juice runs from your mouth off the end of your elbow before you can get your teeth all the way through it.)
10. Crab Legs (Everytime I watch “The World’s Deadliest Catch” I want crab legs for some odd reason.)
So what would YOU put on your menu request list?
