Daily Prompt: Pour Some Sugar on Me|Salt n’ Peppa’

Posted on

What is your favorite sweet thing to eat? Bread pudding? Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies? A smooth and creamy piece of cheesecake? 

Pour-some-sugar-on-me

I have posted this post some months ago, and I renew it here, in this time of chocolate, so indulge moderately

When I read The Daily Prompt: Pour Some Sugar on  me, I was going to write about the sweets topics and all the above: Mille-Feuilles, a French pastries , and petite salties, petits-fours gourmets I am found of, then I saw the featured image by stu_spivack in a second,  I recalled Nina Simone’s “I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl” song,

What It Was Like to Hear Nina Simone Live

I want a little sugar in my bowl

I want a little sweetness down in my soul

I could stand some lovin’, oh so bad

I feel so funny, I feel so sad

I said to myself : forget about the food,  I couldn’t help but  just post this video as is, http://www.last.fm/music/Nina+Simone/_/I+Want+a+Little+Sugar+in+My+Bowl http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rqU9LKA83Yc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLyk7Jst9Bk&list=RDrqU9LKA83Yc

A little treat for myself, it’s mon Peché-Mignion, that’s  what I wanted to share with you, first,  so I grabbed a Mille-Feuilles, an Eclair-aux-chocolat, at a French bakery at the corner of the street,  and some petit-salés, with a bottle of champagne Moêt et Chandon, (these are traits from France,) where she lived for many years, and I sat back and listened to Nina Simone, but  you don’t have to, so listen you proper music if you don’t like Jazz, and please indulge delightfully.

But then I got that bitter-sweet taste heft in the palate, when I got to read the Longreads post: What it was like to hear Nina Simone Live?

But wait! There is more to it, I just read this http://nyti.ms/1FsNLNj that I want to share it with you, for the time being too, it’s on Tweeter, I feel not so funny, but so sad

  1. I love Nina Simone. I became interested in her music through watching a movie.

    • Thank you for liking my blog on Nina Simone, she was a diva, I used to have the vinyls of all her songs since the 70s, she made love jazz with her unemitable voice, and her accent when she sung in French “ne me quite pas”
