Drabble: Domestic God

Written in response to the prompt sacred.

Genre: humour


~Domestic God~

Take equal measures of sage, fennel, and rosemary, and double as much of palm oil. Rub the spices together and blend them with the oil.

Was she reading a sacred text or a cookbook?

Going through the pages gave her more recipes for bread, meat, vegetables, carbs, and more.

“Found anything?” her colleague asked.

“A cookbook.”

“Sure you got the right one?” He checked the front page.

She handed the whole thing over and took his. “Switch.”

Use only pure silk of gold and red, and white linen for the clothes.

First food, now clothes. What a domestic God this culture had. 



This is inspired by the Christian old testament, where God provides pretty detailed instructions for things like how to make the anointing oil, priestly garments, bread, lamps, arks, and all kinds of stuff.
