Magic Bullet Smoothie

Five Sentence Fiction –  What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.

This week’s word: FRESH

IMG_3367Kara thrust the cup out to her husband, “Come on honey, it’s a smoothie with all your favorite fresh fruits; just one taste.

He  stepped back, waving the cup away. “Fruit my ass; I saw that pile of green stuff in the bottom and that slime ain’t crossing these lips,” he said, clamping his mouth closed like a two-year-old refusing medicine.

“I promise it tastes better than it looks and Doc Griffin’s gonna be thrilled when your cholesterol falls outta the heart attack range.”

  “I might need a magic bullet,” he’s said through clenched lips, “but that ain’t it; I’ll take my chances.”

    • Thank you, I’m so glad you enjoyed the post. And you’re right about men! It gets worse with age! I hope you will stop by the Cow Pasture again. I look forward to more conversations.


  1. It’s such a challenge to feed your loved ones with things that are good for them…especially the greens! I have a tough time with my son for the same, but I manage to stuff a bit of those in his meals when he’s not noticing 😉 It’s not as easier with grown up men, as we can figure out here 😀


    • You got that right! I did manage to switch him to turkey instead of beef in the spaghetti sauce, but greens? Forget it. Men are worse than children, I think. LOL Thank you for stopping by the Cow Pasture. I’m glad you enjoyed your visit and I look forward to more conversations.


  2. I know what that green stuff in the smoothie is!
    Bitter-gourd, right? Or green-leafy veggies/spinach?
    Very good for the health!
    I love smoothies 🙂
    Have a great year!


    • Haha! You guessed it. Green leafy veggies abd spinach. My husband hates anything green, typical meat and potatoes man. I love the veggies and smoothies, thus the inspiration for this piece. Thanks for stopping by the Cow Pasture and I look forward to hearing from you more in the future.
