Would You Believe

I appreciate you asking me for a date
Would you believe you asked too late?

No? Well I have another excuse
A list of them that's quite profuse

I tripped and fell, breaking my nose 
Now there's blood all over my clothes

I've absolutely nothing decent to wear 
I haven't had time to wash my hair

I ate chocolate covered crickets 
and that gave me goldarn rickets

I turned a shade of putrid green 
so the doctor said I'm quarantined

Really, it's not that I don't wanna
but somehow I woke up in Tijuana

Perhaps at another time, maybe?
Right now I'm about to have a baby!

If not in fact, then I'm sure in thought. I find a few giggles inside of me now and then. Thanks, Jan.

Love the humor Lin. It's funny to me how we humans never grow up, always needing to know why the answer is no. It really doesn't matter does it. The answer is not going to change regardless of the reason why.

All true, Danny. I think we can best attribute it to that nasty trait called 'ego.' The less of one we have, the better off we will be. Thanks for enjoying this one and leaving a comment. I posted a silly one then another, a titch more intense.

Ha ha, poor fellow. Perhaps it will inspire him to paint a painting.

Could be. He could take a lesson or two from your Painted Lady poem. I really enjoyed it, Rick. Thanks for stopping by.
