They Had Better Hurry Up And Enjoy Their Food Before They Are Turned Into Crackers!
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
Skip and I spent a nice day together. We had things to do, places to go. :)))
We decided to go to Kentucky Fried Chicken to have lunch. Skip likes to go there on Monday, Tuesday... so, he can get the 'senior citizen's discount'.
We went to the buffet bar, got our meals; sat down to eat. I sat there, people-watched. I noticed all the 'old-timers' were coming in for the 'senior citizen discount'... it was very noticeable. Only a few people were young in there. :)))
I was enjoying my lunch when Skip said something that made me almost choke in laughter. It hit me as so funny. You see, I've been telling Skip that one day probably before we die... 'we old people' are probably going to be turned into crackers, wafers to be a food source for the world.
I am reading so much lately about things happening in the world that was in books to read for entertainment when I was a young person. Now... these 'crazy' things are becoming reality! For example, the drones.... they'll be everywhere spying on people... and no one will notice them... they will look like little insects.
In some restaurants... drones can be used to 'fly' food to the seated customer at their tables! I read that one day 'soon', drones will be used to deliver pizza ... after obtaining permission to fly over people's property... permission to use their 'air-space'. Isn't it amazing?
Some things I've read... concern me. It brings back to me, a memory of a movie I watched as a young person. Lately, it's been on my mind... the name of the movie is Soylent Green (Thank-you, my friend, Prenin, in England... for helping me to remember the name of the movie). I just received the movie in the mail; I ordered it from Amazon.com.
I haven't seen this movie since being very young... it made an impression on me. It's about feeding the masses of people, and the food source used. Old people.... if I remember right... were turned into crackers/wafers for people to eat.
Yeah... they were eating their grandmas, grandpas.... right and left! I don't have to worry about that... I don't have either one left in this world... and I have no desire to eat your grandma, grandpa... so, they are safe with me!
I'm going to take time to watch this movie soon. I can't wait to see it again... to see if I remember right.
Anyway... I've been getting Skip interested in watching this movie. I told him about the food source in the movie... he agreed there's no telling what will 'happen one day'.
I saw a group of 'old' people come into Kentucky Fried Chicken. I watched as they walked up to the counter to order. They were given their trays, cups... everyone walked to the buffet bar to get their food.
I was watching as they began walking to their table... I was in my own world, deep in thought, thinking about that movie... when I heard Skip say...
"They better hurry up and enjoy their food before they are turned into crackers!"
