A Smidgeon Too Much Rum

shhhh...please don't tell Jan I tattled on her.

Did you hear 'bout Jan's custard a-la-plum
While making it she drank far too much rum
while on her wobbly legs
put mustard in the eggs
It was wretched and tasted like pond scum

Her hubby asked her for a large serving
But the rum made Jan wiggle while swerving
'Twas a messy mishap
She dropped it on his lap
Jan laughed but hubby found it unnerving

He asked why she thought that was so funny
Jan sipped more rum then said, "Sorry, honey"
She sat upon the floor
and drank a few gulps more
then slurred, "It wath a smidgeon too runny"

LOL - this is awesome ... Limericks I find tricky to do with good rhythm, but this is wonderful, and I'm still chuckling, (and I just discovered a new rum that I love! It's called Plantation - yum!). But now I'm feeling it's time for a little eggnog, haha! ;-) Wonderfully fun write!

Thank you for a hearty triple laugh, Lin:):) I have missed what inspired this, though I can imagine since it's Jan-originated. ~ Hope you and the new year greeted each other with a smile:) Regards // paul
