Thursday Haiku

Life looks better when it's put into verse.

Throat raw and scratchy
Nose sniffles and I'm tired
Yep! I've caught a cold!

I have sent email
Need info, get no reply
It's my punishment.

Bakery lady
Why so surly this morning?
Who peed on your rolls?

Picked up new glasses
Have to get used to my face
All over again.

Daffodils start out
Looking like asparagus
Turn into sunshine.

Must go and lay down
I'm fussy, sleepy, cranky
Yes, I'm a toddler.

Come back tomorrow and Bixente the iPod will shuffle for you. And we'll dance.

"Who peed on your rolls?" Oh, that is priceless... I'm going to start asking everyone that.

Life does look better in verse. I just got new glasses too but I haven't picked them up yet. It's going to be weird getting used to my face. And I also bought the one thing I've always wanted -- prescription swim goggles. They were only $60 whereas my glasses were ridiculous.

Oooh, yuck. I hope you feel better soon. (And I hope nobody tries to serve you any pee-soaked rolls, either!)

P.S. I love daffodils, too... we had such a pretty daffodil garden when I was in France. I miss it!

I was really buying it... right up to that Hellmans Mayo remark.Nice try, but a true Southern Belle would know if it ain't Blue Plate it ain't mayo.

Mayonaise sho a buncha phonies on the internet

If we're determining how "Southern" someone is by which mayonnaise they prefer, we're in a world of shit. Takes more than that, sugar pie.

So since I don't like Cabbage, my Irish heritage can be thrown out the window?

Yes, it is true, the United States has allowed Southerners access to other brands of mayo. We also stopped making the women wear hoop skirts about 150 years ago and having the men dress like Colonel Sanders.

Oh, and we gave them plumbing and stopped making them only have access to Coca Cola products. Congress passed the Grits Resolution in the 60's- they now can have cold cereal. One or two of them have tasted waffles.
