Pasta Sides Prose Poetry

Pasta Sides Prose Poetry



I hope you enjoyed the poem.
As a thanks, I made a sample preview of something similar to the games that will be available on the papooseApp being released publicly 2017Q4.
In this rather brief simulation...
("Wish it could have been longer but I haven't programmed JavaScript in about ten years, and the code started falling apart (aka, crapping out) on the fourth level, so there's only three rounds in the sample preview below for now. The app is programmed with over 80 of these so far and growing weekly, so hopefully it's still entertaining with only three rounds..." Ms. Jessica Messinger ('Jess') states, making Chen uncomfortable since nobody paid Jess for any of her programming work so far, and he felt like she was hinting at that a little. In his defense, he did toss around the word intern a few times when interviewing Jess. But in her defense, she's the only one doing any work on the papooseApp and games so far, so Chen goes before she does, if Papoose has to choose.)
("Quiet! Papoose was talking!" Chen barks at her with a sprinkle of contempt.)
...which is played by identifying one of the two choices that correctly completes the sentence.
The sentence is in the middle of the top choice and the other below.
When spoken out loud, the two options sound similar.
Did the exact same syllables get spoken in the same order both times?
Perhaps they are even identical if you speak the syllables without thinking of the words they form?
("So, what Papoose is saying is when you read the two choices out loud, you'll see they both say the exact same thing. Only the pauses between words when you speak will change? So are they phrases that are homonyms?not just single word homonyms, or homophones? So, homonymous phrases, or homophonic phrases..." Jess asked.)
("Dude, shut up!" Chen explained to Jess as nicely as possible, hoping his in-depth reply sufficiently resolved her query.)
Try to figure out which one is correct in the first example below .
("Both options that you can vote for sound identical if you speak them out loud," Jess shared.)
("They know already, pipe down!" Chen thanked her.)
("The games are designed to be a little more challenging in the app," Jess informs Chen, since he has no idea how to build an app.
("Shh! Nobody cares," Chen thanked her again.)
Press the button below to load the first round.
The options will appear, one above and one below the main sentence in the middle.
Vote for the one that you believe is correct.
An answer will pop up letting you know if you got it right.
Round 2 will display in the Round 1 button to indicate you may proceed to the next round.
There are three rounds total...
("...so take it slow or go help Jess learn better JavaScripting skills, or you can also find the second puzzle--this being the first--when Jess and Papoose finally figured out how to use the Fusion database hiding back there somewhere," Chen said, reciting what he overheard them talking about.
("How did you know about that?" Jess asks Chen. He shrugs indifferently.)
