One Liner Wednesday – Christmas Humor

I am sure there are many people out there this week who are frantically busy buying Christmas gifts for family and friends. Along with the never-ending shopping list of food and other necessary items some of us lean heavily on our husbands, wives and partners to help with everything. Right? When I came across this funny cartoon recently it really made me laugh.

Wishing you all a very happy Holiday Season and a wonderful New Year.

One Liner Wednesday – Junk Drawer

We all have them don’t we? The junk drawer that is probably in your kitchen. I remember always having one and over the years, with each move, the contents of my junk drawer would make the move in its own packing box. On arrival at the house the junk was given its new drawer. Really! It’s crazy I know but the stuff in that drawer doesn’t belong anywhere else.

So the other day I found this little blue plastic thing on the floor. We’d had a guest staying with us and I was so sure it had come off one of her belongings. I texted her a photo of it but it wasn’t hers. So guess where it now lives?

One Liner Wednesday – Mistaken Identity?

Good Wednesday morning! I hope you are all doing well. Have you noticed, when you are in a store, it is an easy mistake to assume that someone standing nearby might work there and you begin asking questions. Maybe they have the same color shirt as the company uniform or they are wearing an unrelated name tag. I’m sure most of us have done it accidentally, but I have never thought of doing it on purpose to get a reaction from someone. Have you? I do worry about Karma though. They say what goes around, comes around.

Born To Nag – A Duodora 

Born To Nag

The endless drone
Of someone who can nag
And nag again more
What pleasure I ask
Is in it for you
Watching me squirm from your verbal attack
Imprisoning me without a leeway

The endless drone
Of incessant k’vetch
I begin to dream
Of another life
Absent from your whine
Where I no longer hear what I’ve done wrong
Because you have been spirited away

Lisa is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight and has prompted us with some Halloween fun.
We are to write a poem, using the Duodora form if we wish, about a human
attribute that is particularly irritating to you.  I particularly cannot bear
nagging in any form.  I liked the idea of writing a Duodora (my first).
The Duodora is:
a quatorzain made up of 2 septets.
syllabic,  4/6/5/5/5/10/10 syllables per line.
rhymed Axxxxxb Axxxxxb L1 is repeated as a refrain that begins
the 2nd stanza. x is unrhymed.
