Mary's Soup

Today, sitting here at lunch time. Watching my granddaughter eat her tomato soup and grilled cheese. She loves it and its about to gross me out watching her eat IT.

Last night for supper tomato soup and grilled cheese. (todays lunch was leftovers from last night) Last night, grossed me out to.

But what can I say, My family loves it!

(note: grdau on her third bowl of this crap, and also she lets me know she likes it COLD even. My poor stomach is doing flip-flops here. I think I might cut her off after this bowl and get her out of the kitchen. Its me or her, and damn I want to blog. Shit three bowls, damn it wont hurt to cut her off)

Sorry got carried away.

Anyway....For my whole life, I have deprived my family tomato soup. I couldnt make it for them. I had put it in my mind that it was a poor mans meal. and I wasnt going to fix it, YET eat it or smell it.

Back when I was about 5 or 6, I think. My mom worked at a bank in a small town. She would drop us (me and my sister) off at the babysitters house. Mom had known this woman (Mary) all there lives.

more LIKE.....Mary's house of hell!

I remember times when my sister would do something dumb and Mary would stand her in the shower and turn the cold water on. Sometimes in the dead of winter, make her stand in the garage.

Mary had 2 daughters, the oldest one still peed the bed. She would make us lay on that piss smellin bed, sometimes still wet.

Mary wasnt a very nice person and even though it seems she was meaner to my sister, than she was to me. and these are the only things I remember about Marys house of hell!

SO...Lunch time at Mary's Hells Kitchen:

The only meal I remember was one at lunch,
Tomato Soup and green Kool-aid

She forced us to eat the soup and drink the kool-aid. I remember the soup sooo salty, it was nasty. And DAMN lets not forget what we were washing it down with, GREEN KOOL-AID (I dont make green kool-aid, either)

Anyway this green Kool-aid was HOT, I dont mean room temperature, HOTTER and BITTER as FUCK. I really to this day dont know what I was drinking, but it was sure nasty. and She told us it was Kool-aid.

As me and my sister got older, as in our older teens and when we left Mom and Dads house. Sis and I would tell MOM the same stories about Marys house of hell.
Mom always had played it off, when we were younger. She couldnt imagen Mary being that way. So she just over looked it all those times.

So as the stories never changed, then it was when Mom started listening and saying, why didnt you tell me. We had told her, what was sis and I to do. I dont blame my MOM for this and I have NEVER! This isnt about my mom.

For all my adult life, gettin married and raising a family.

I NEVER made Tomato Soup and green Kool-aid.

After the me kids left the house. I have my daughter, tellin me, sometimes they have Tomato soup and grilled cheese for supper and all three of them LOVE it..I just make my face and go on.

I had gotten this half gallon looking thing, a cartoon of cream of tomato soup a couple of months ago. So last night I mixed it to shut them UP. It wasnt pretty around here, as my husband and grdau, PIGGED OUT!

That smell and looking at that red stuff laying in the bowl I just cant handle.and YES as I type this, My stomachs doing wheelies!

my stomach, just rolling and rolling. Damn Mary!

As I sit here and remembered Mary and what she did to us. When she or mom stopped the babysitting, I dont remember. I never laid my eyes on Mary again. Even though to this very day, she has lived in the same house and I drive by it going to my daughters.

Funny thing..well you know what I mean.....When I was in the hospital having my first born. Mary was working the Baby floor at that time. I didnt know this until she walked into my room one evening. I about died, I didnt say anything to her, I just answered her questions and she went on her merry way.

I laid in that hospital bed and wondered if she remember what she had did to me and my sister. I wonder if she ever felt bad, or had any feeling about the way she treated us.......I guess at this point in time in my life, Ill never know....HELL I may NEVER KNOW! as long as I live. Do I wish Mary in HELL.......I dont know!

I hate to tell you that I loved tomato soup and grilled cheese. I haven't eaten it in many years....but I liked it. But now Mary....she sounds horrible! If she had walked into my room when I was having my baby.....I would have demanded that she get out...and have someone else ask the questions. You're a better woman than I am!
