Basketball Heads



Made quite an impression, it seems On the chair I've been glued to so long The indentation is an exact replica Of my rear, hmmm, sounds like a song Me bum and me chair are going steady Have been since joining P-Soup Methinks maybe atrophy is setting in So I think I'll shoot some hoops It's surely a result of this computer age Our bodies will soon have no use Our heads will be the size of basketballs But our bodies will be an excuse Excuse to hold up our 100 pound heads With it's 250 gigabyte storage space We'll actually need some kind of device Or we'll continue to fall on our face Made quite an impression, it surely seems On the chair I've been glued to so long Thinks I'll go for a ride in my old jalopy An old Dodge I bought for a song © Jack Ellison 2013

    Yes this computer age kinda has a way of getting you more familiar than you would choose to be with your chair. Cute

    Maybe Miss Wattle has it figured out... it's the Souper Glue that's the problem! Somehow these guys secretly creep in when we're fast asleep and put gobs of that stuff on our chairs. LOL Happy it made you happy! Big big hugs xoxox

    Well, you've made quite an impression on *me*, dear Jack! A 100-pound head? How obtuse for an excuse! Beware the Souper Glue, my friend :) Another great read, Jack! xox

    In fact, I've noticed my head seems to be getting heavier lately! So it might be a sign of things to come for sure! Don't think it's knowledge though... think it's love! LOL Thank you Miss Wattle... big hugs xoxox

    Every night... the new catasaurus steals my chair for her nefarious nap and play time, so Dragon, I and the Dogasaurus go for a walkie as all the neighbors bar their gates. If we stop and talk Dragon and Dogasaurus's weight leaves their little foot prints in their lawn, side walks, drive ways... You can say they're very versatile in where they leave their mark... LOL... They give me a ride when I tucker out so they can stay out longer... But we always come back before the bogey man arrives... LOL

    They seem like friendly enough souls... why are the neighbours so afraid... maybe it's not them, maybe it's you dressed up with all those funny outfits you wear... no wait I 'm thinking another Souper! LOL I've said this before and I'll say it again lovingly... you are a kook! Big hugs Miss Carol xox Watch out for the bogey man!!!
