Three Things Challenge #375

https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/10/01/three-things-challenge-375/

Your three things today are:

CHEESE
FLACK
WORM

Little Worm

When the little wiggle worm 

Goes to eat his cheese 

He’s given flack from his friends 

For never saying please. 

He takes his turn at buggies house 

And shares his favorite dirt 

Buggie doesn’t mind the worm 

And loves that little squirt. 

They share their things and find their joy 

In giving to each other 

If you didn’t see their difference 

You’d think Buggie was his brother.

Your three things today are:

RECORD
HANG
THREAD

The Record

When I went to the park 

I saw in a tree 

A record was spinning 

It wasn’t from me 

I found that a person 

Tried to hang it up high 

Using a thing thread 

Like a fly in the sky 

The round disc was there 

To reflect all the sun 

I think that it’s pretty 

And happy it’s done.

Your three things today are:

MONEY
PRESSURE
TICKET

Ticket

Back at the ranch 

Under the stars 

The pressure was on 

To head straight to the bars 

No money to spare 

So, we knew to drink light 

A ticket to paradise 

Not far from sight.

Three Things Challenge #338

Your three things today are:

SILLY
GAME
BACKFIRE

That Cat is Back!

And so the cat came back again  
 
To tempt the boy and girl.  
 
He wanted just a silly game  
 
not for a problem to unfurl.  
 
He told them both to grab the fish  
 
Inside his tiny bowl  
 
The fish he yelled he was just fine  
 
And then his eyes did roll  
 
He knew what was in store for him  
 
He’d been here once before  
 
The last time that the game ensued  
 
It backfired more and more.  
 
The kids they took the poor old fish  
 
And put him in the sink  
 
The cat he was a crazy thing  
 
And took the bowl to drink  
 
He wanted to just taste the fish  
 
But not let the kids find out  
 
Luckily the kids were faster  
 
They saved the fish no doubt.  
 
And so the cat he left again  
 
And took his mess and game  
 
The children often look for him  
 
Of course they know his name.

GO
CHUBBY
PREGNANT

He says I’m chubby

If he tells me one more time that I look chubby I think I am going to lose it. Does the man who inseminated me not know what pregnant looks like? How on earth can one man go from a loving, romantic lover to a sarcastic, lazy louse in the matter of hours?

Your three things today are: 

EXOTIC 
PETS 
TENNIS 

The New Pet

Veva stopped the tennis match she had been watching on television, knowing her brother would be stopping by any minute. Bruce was coming by to show her his new exotic parrot. He had gone to the store to see what pets they had that might suit his lifestyle. Bruce told Veva that the parrot was a perfect fit because he wanted something that lived a long time.

Three Things Challenge #277

Thanks to Di at Pensitivity101 for 3 things: https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/06/25/three-things-challenge-277/

Your three things today are:

RESPITE
UNHEARD
NAKED

My experience

Having worked with the psychologically fragile I understand that caregivers need a chance to receive respite for all the hours they put in. It is a lot of work and mentally demanding. A great day is even an hour of peacefulness. It is not unheard of for smaller children suffering from an emotional disturbance to suddenly appear naked, to shock the caregiver. Luckily, I do not believe adults are the same. The hardest part is convincing caregivers that respite is for them, not because they can’t do their job right.
