No Kidding

041416_laughingscience_BODY

When I try to think of the last time I laughed to the point of tears
I would say it has not been for years
But, my oldest is a dark thinker and so his jokes can mirror that
Like the time that he spoke of a dead cat
Or when he talked about a dyslexic, insomniac and an agnostic
The punch lines are sometimes caustic
But when he giggles along with those people that he is telling
I see myself and my heart it is swelling
Growing up, I have always really enjoyed making others laugh
Hearing those giggles, even if it’s a gaffe
At my own expense it can be embarrassing, but is worth it too
When chuckling is done at me by you©

I Want A Treat

Woman eating chocolate cake

A cookie and a piece of cake
I want a treat, don’t want to bake
So I go to the grocery store
And down the isles I will explore
I need a snack, oh but what
Had my fill of candy, now in a rut
Not a chip not ice cream too
Like sweet and salty, but neither do
A donut looks like a keeper
Or maybe pizza, it is much cheesier
Too many choices to make
Suppose I will just go home to bake©

Four Letters…Well, You Know

pretty-girl-covering-her-mouth

I’ve had a revelation I must admit
Sometimes life makes me feel like…well, you know

Actions of others can make me sick
Then you have those that act like a…well, you know

Yes, some are just down on their luck
Things could be better if more gave a…well, you know

Politicians, please get with the program
Countries in disaster, do you even give a…well, you know

I try to see the glass half full, all going well
But it can overwhelm me, just give up, Oh…well, you know©

A Guy Goes Into A Bar

How could I not giggle when finding out the word of the day is “knackered.”
For all my UK and Aussie friends, this one’s for you.

I ran into this guy so daft tried to give him the shaft
Bloody hell what a duff, but he thought he was tough
Dodgiest mate I’d ever seen, except, maybe the queen
What an undeniable arse, perhaps this was just a farce
But then my fanny he tried to touch, that was too much
What a cock-up he did make, indeed was a huge mistake
Off his trolley I think somewhat, but I’m giving him a nut
Didn’t know how to react, he was in fact quite gobsmacked
Said, “Bugger off you prat!” and he was finally gone with that

Was knackered after his thrashing, but hey, I still look smashing

Tales From The Fitting Room

shirtfactory_changingrooms

Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “spell.” Use the word “spell” any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use it in the first sentence. 

Let me sit for a spell and tell you about my week. If you are unaware, recently I began working in fashion retail. This week was busy, as I live in a tourist town, (a spring vacation destination no less). My job is aiding people in finding items of clothing, well a bit more, but that is the simple description.

People are quite “interesting” creatures, consistently surprising me. If you have worked with them in any capacity than you know what I mean! I am considering writing a book named “Tales From the Fitting Room” and it would be a comedic-horror-nonfiction. I mean, I have seen way more than I ever wanted to, in just a short period of time.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my job! But, this week was crappy, I mean literally! I shall not elaborate more, but needless to say…disgusting! And, I work in a high-end retail store, you would think that it would be better. I guess it doesn’t matter what walk of life you are in, people are still people. The good, the bad and the terribly inconsiderate.

I never knew that one person could try on so many clothes and leave them in so many manners of inside-out. And how difficult it is to pull a shirt from a pile, whilst not leaving the entire rest of the pile on the floor. And if one more person ignores my greeting and gives me attitude… On the bright side, I had my highest personal sales day with over $1450 sold.

So, as I go to spell the next name on the next fitting room door, I shall be filing away more stories to share. Maybe the next one will be yours. And, do forgive me if I forget to spell your name with two “L’s,” miss an “H,” or add an “E.”©
