Three Things Challenge

Written for Di:


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?

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.

Your three things today are:


a walk in the park

While walking slow into the park 

Feeling the wave of some fresh clean air 

It was starting to get a bit dark 

My neck had standing up hair. 

I didn’t know why I did feel 

Like someone was there watching me 

All that I know is it’s peaceful 

Almost like water being pumped out to sea.

Fibbing Friday

I have missed this so many times and I am so happy I get to answer these questions again. Thanks Di, for posting them!:

1. What is the difference between Biweekly and a Fortnight?
By weekly happens only once every two weeks while every day has one fortnight.
2. How much oil would your lantern need to last a fortnight?

It depends on what time you turn your lantern on.
3. If you spent a fortnight in Paris, what would you see?
The same things you’d see if you were there longer, just maybe less stops.
4. What’s the difference between a microchip and a micro chip?
A microchip is a chip that you put in a microwave and a micro chip is a super small chip of something.
5. What’s brown, shiny and sizzles?

Definitely bacon
6. How is the best way to make lemonade?

With lemons. Is there another way I never heard of?
7. How many types of coke are there?

I think it all depends on if you get it pure or if your dealer has cut some other drug into it to get more for his money.
8. Why was a sundae glass so named?

Because you can’t eat a sunday on a plate and you wouldn’t put your sandwich in a sundae bowl. The sundae bowl has to be the clear glass so you can see how much ice cream you have left after each bite.
9. What is hellsapoppin?

It’s was Mary Poppin’s husband calls her time of the month
10.What did the Knights of the Round Table do during the day?

Obviously slept since they were at the round table all night.

Bixxy Bunny

Bixxy was a bunny 

Who loved to make her clothes 

She had a special button 

Its shaped just like her nose 

She uses all her fabric 

To make her dress just fine 

If she were a real designer 

I’d definitely make her mine.

Do you remember the time that Grandma said 
worship your mother before she is dead? 

That wasn’t the worst advice she ever gave 
But bad as it was you became mother’s slave. 

You did all you could to keep mother’s grace 
She could see all your feelings right on your face. 

Grandma was right to tell me who I should love 
I was sent to my mom from God up above.

Three Things Challenge #219 from Di .
The three things for the day #threethingschallenge

Ruler of the Land

Have you ever realized 
before you had a clue 
that what you did was not right 
and a danger to us too? 

Don’t just sit and argue 
that you are always good 
mistakes are made and people cry 
that they’re misunderstood.   

Suck it up and listen 
to words I have to say 
No one is quite perfect 
nor wants to be that way.  

The only person happy 
with being Mr. Right 
is a person with no ethics 
nor puts up a fair fight.  

We have a man just like this 
who thinks he rules the land 
But don’t just listen to this ass, 
Trump will hopefully be banned.

bread for my wife

If I go to cook some bread 
I turn the oven on. 
I think about the yeast and flour 
and apron that I’ll don.  

I plan the taste of olive oil 
and add some poppy seeds. 
I kneed the dough, add some zest 
and anything it needs.  

When it’s done it’s out of the pot,  
the hot bread comes to life. 
I put the lamp on, spread some jam 
and give it to my wife.
