Tanka poem above ~ hilarious explanation
1. I needed an answer to a question.
2. Prepared with account number I soon
met my first dilemma.
3. Oh dear I need my glasses as the company’s 800 number
is spelled out (alphabetic).
4. I placed the call and listened to the menu selection.
5. ‘Other’ was my chosen option.
6. I’m told next step in process was receipt of a text message.
7. Instructions to access a hyperlink made me stop and think.
8. Being polite I replied to the text with ‘no thank you’.
9. I left the room to conduct a search via another method.

Imagine reading this ‘next’ text (verbatim).
“I’m sorry. I’m a bot and I’m still learning. Ask your questions…



Humor – letter to me

While reading my last chosen book for the 2021 Goodreads

challenge I did many suggested workbook exercises.

Reality: ‘All the questions & answers, all the lists, all the

drawings and the letters to myself were ‘beneficial’.

I had to be 100 percent onboard and honest to feel

the gain/reward.

Random page from my journal ‘Happy Thoughts’

contains a letter I wrote to my body. It’s soo much

better to feel good about yourself.

The day I wrote the following I had a good laugh.

Dear Body,

You are old and tired now.

I remember when I used to take better care of you.

What happened? Life! Ageism. Depression.

Although I make honest efforts to forge ahead,

re-starting an exercise regimen combined with

healthy eating I doubt I’m going to approve of

the image in the mirror.

Wear a bikini (heck no) related thought = dread.

The stomach of this body carried four children on

the inside and I have a ‘roadmap’ to nowhere for

proof on the outside.

True, I’m unique and special – look at the previous

exercise, a long list of hobbies I tried throughout

my life and all the accomplishments.

Truth is: ‘I don’t like being old’; however, I’ll continue

my ‘old in years – young at heart’ portrayal.

I pray I can keep a positive mindset – one day at

a time future.

‘It’s okay to love myself and demand respect’ even

when the mirror image is a bit bothersome and tad

scary.

This journal entry portrays mixed emotions.

One has to put themself in a good frame of

mind and enjoy today’s journey at whatever

stage of life.

To compare oneself to the younger generation

is a waste of time since the biological clock

moves in one direction, forward.

Golabki (Polish Stuffed Cabbage Rolls)

Prompt Challenge #20 – Banging Out a Dish

What’s for supper?
A daily question posed to mothers

Memories night opted for golabki leftovers
Yesterday’s extra casserole dish no bother

Decision heat low flame on range top
Soon out of nowhere heard large pop


Walk to kitchen found quite exploded mess
Whatever happened unknown must confess

No idea earlier choice outcome be so wrong
Claim stupidity only nobody previous inform

Never place certain heating dishes on range
Potential heated aftermath worse than strange

Clean up process definite took quite some time

Contents cabbage rolls ‘n broken dish sight begrime

Imagine question posed again ‘what’s for supper
Answer seek pizza parlor’s menu call in takeout order!

Adverbs – Usage

Common knowledge readers find news articles informative, bothersome, rhetoric

and on occasion humorous.

The first three categories from different printed publications constitute the

abundance of news selections.

It’s quite obvious to the average daily reader how little humor is found betwixt

penned lines unless the cartoon section is their first choice.

Laughter is good for the soul and I managed a few chuckles over the weekend

when I brought up an article beginning with the adverb ‘allegedly’.

I wonder if the layout editor of the popular newspaper created space for

this unbelievable hilarious read or by job description inserted it to fill up

a page.

Either – or – twas rather funny to envision the event defined below.

A voyeur, referenced as peeping Tom, had been arrested on scene of

a gym down south after falling through the ceiling of the women’s

locker room.

It seemed he received quite a bit more than he’d bargained for when

the locker room’s ceiling gave way and he fell approximately ten feet.

Sadly, he fell onto a 70-year old woman who thankfully attained no

injuries.

As a former gym member for years, I can attest woman aren’t exactly

weak and this woman along with several other patrons apprehended

the deviant prior to the arrival of law enforcement.

By definition a peeping Tom is referred to as a man who secretly observes

women undressing and derives sexual pleasure.

Arrested on site yet article states ‘allegedly’ since although accused he’s

yet to be proven guilty and convicted.

Yes, the good citizen has to stand by and watch how the system works or

fails.

Innocent until proven guilty!

Laughable since few people without malintent hide in the ceiling of gym

locker rooms.





Memories Dating Back to the 60s

Blue Cornflower percolator he – he -he
Bridal shower gift dating back mid 1960s

Brand new bride appear lack common sense
Coffee first attempt void cooking experience

Necessary follow instructions – definite not she
Brewing tasteful coffee certain easy no difficulty

Til husband’s loud question spun head around
Instructions in hand recipe coffee shown found 

Hun thought twas supposed to fill entire basket
No idea prepping strong coffee result hairy chest
