Miserable Grumpy And Mean

If I go a whole day without my Wheaties I'm miserable, grumpy and mean My Wheaties are really the only thing Between me and a very bad scene Beat up little kiddies but they must be little Like two or three feet high or less None of those overgrown teenager dudes My face would end up quite a mess Don't think badly of me, it's the Wheaties They provide me with real hutzpah You best hide the kiddies if I run out of 'em Hide the axes, knives and chainsaws I did seek help but the psyche was like me Needed his Wheaties to cope Beat the living daylights out of yours truly Whipped me with his stethoscope Wheaties are required to maintain stability So we don't go off the deep end Had a great big giant bowlful this morning So relax I'm real mellow again © Jack Ellison 2013

We have Wheaties here my friend, I don't eat them, I'm not a huge fan! But I do know about the necessities of the morning ritual! I am like Carol, I must have my diet soda in the morning, that keeps me on the straight and narrow, ha ha! I really loved reading this delightful poem this afternoon! What a delightful piece, Great Work!!

Wow, I'm not a diet soda fan in the morning! Anyway, we never ever have been able to buy Wheaties up here for some strange reason! I'm a Nabisco Shredded Wheat fan though! Cheers!

Oh Jack! We don't have Wheaties here, or I'd consider shipping you some! :) I want you always jolly and safe! ;) Hugs!

Axes, chainsaws, and knives? EWWWWW! Shame on you. For me it's a glass of diet Coke for the morning caffeine... I don't beat anyone up... I just keep wanting to sleep all day without it. Dragon says I become quite BORING! Silly dragon then flies off to do double the mischief around town. That way everyone keeps calling me and the phone keeps waking me up... He knows how to hit where it hurts...Ouch! Fortunately, I just fall back to sleep.... A real sleepaholic without my morning caffeine.

I enjoy beating up people, especially little kiddies! Makes me feel macho! For some unknown reason, we can't actually buy Wheaties up here in the frozen north! My fav is Nabisco Shredded Wheat... yummy yum yum! XOXOX

Very clever and oh so true of some of our habits we can't live without. Are "Wheaties" like a wheat cereal? Excuse the ignorance but we don't get them here in S/Africa.

YUP! You guessed it! It's a cereal that's been around since before I was born and that's a LONG LONG time! LOL Hugs, Jack xox
