Can't find this in your local grocers...
Grab a can of traffic
    To mix with the seasoning 'Snooze,'
And your cart already contains a fabulous mix for Late.
In the frozen section they have hearts on sale,
      But only the generic, takes-years-to-thaw brand.
Your last conversation called for a chunk of spiral ham-
But the one before that needed thigh of Chicken.
            I recommend putting both off and using 75% lean mean serious.
A bottle of hugs and kisses
                                Fizzle out if open too long,
So, I suggest a jug of consequences to take to the party.
  A bag of frivolity would be nice- buy one, get second half-off.
Make sure you still have a box of excuses to get you through the
                                Rest of the week.
Two liters of lite-tears mix well with any slice of depression,
        And I would also recommed a half a pound of sliced-Deli happiness.
(Any more and it begins to taste fake.)
                  Speaking of- weren't you planning on a magnificent salad?
  Grab a head of time and a bag of shredded hopes! 
                            Toss in some education loans and Vola!

I'll wait for you at home. 
I already went through the express lane-
A loaf of dreams and a 12-pack of bad habits.
