Here is a sneak preview of one scene from my new eBook called Rum-Te-Tum-Tum-Crunch...Kerplunk.
Barry sat next to his sister when she laid her head on his shoulder. “Think of home Rosemary, of Mommy and Dad”
A strange looking car flew by with another following; suddenly they stopped by the children. Five individuals dressed like fruit, jumped out of a polka car and five more individuals dressed like vegetables jumped out of green car. Both cars had commercial license plates. The two groups the fruit and vegetables started to fight with spoons and forks.
Both Rosemary and Barry eyes were enormous; they only saw this stuff on television but without the costumes and utensils a course. Unexpectedly a tomato came running from somewhere, it pushed itself between the vegetables and fruits.
Barry noticed that Tomato from somewhere, but he could not put the vegetable face on anything.
The two groups started doing finger games,
“Pease porridge hot, pease porridge cold, Pease porridge in the pot, nine days old, some like it hot some like it cold, some like it in the pot nine days old.”
The tomato lost the game and it started get boiling mad, “I’m a tuh-MAY-toh not a tuh-MAH-toh.” he sat down when suddenly the vegetable and fruit started repeating tuh-MAH-toh not tuh-MAY-toh. The vegetable group attacked the poor ripe tomato by pulling him back and the fruit group got into the game and pulled the poor tomato toward them. They were heading for Barry. Rosemary screamed with horror, “Barry watched out.” The tomato split into two and tomato juice was everywhere.
Suddenly there was a loud siren heading toward the children. Quickly the two cars took off, one part of the tomato went into the polka car and the other into the green car and they zoomed away. Following the car were 10 vans with their sirens ringing with printing on the side FDA, USDA, EPA and CDC and even the CIA (Culinary Institute of America), chased after the fruit and vegetable cars. Rosemary and Barry looked at each other; only evidence left was the tomato stains, plus one packet of seeds.
“That scared the jellybeans out of me didn’t it you Rosemary?”
“Do you think the tomato is alright, Barry?" Rosemary touched her forth head, she was burning up.
“It just tomatoes stains nd did you see those license plates they were from a television show. That was so cool, Rosemary? The FBI or is it USDA...What do all those letters mean?"
“It scared me Barry. I don’t feel good.”
“It’s just make believe, just maybe we could be on a real life television program. They must be taping for the next series.” Barry walked over to the tomato stains, “besides Rosemary, its just catsup.”
Barry took off his worn sneaker and stuff the seed packet into them, they covered the big hole perfectly on the sole of the shoe. Barry was smiling from ear to ear at his new discovery seed packet supports. “Rosemary look! It doesn’t hurt anymore.” Barry did the mash potato dance.
"Rosemary lets get going mother is waiting for us. It's already pass dinner hour."
