Some memories sprang mind when I saw the prompt at Sunday Scribblings 2! The given word is Seeds
I remember as a child being fascinated by the hair growing from my grandfather’s ears and nose. He told me he’d eaten bread with sesame seeds on the crust and they had sprouted inside his head.
I thought about it for a while and came to the conclusion that the Cookie Monster was hairy because he ate cookies sprinkled with seeds grown in Sesame Street!
Since then I’ve had an irrational aversion to sesame seeds and avoid anything containing them. Well, you can’t be too careful, can you?
