i did!

Lillian invites us to lighten up and get a bit silly at dVerse poets’ pub tonight πŸ™‚


did you ever leave cell phone behind,
family must ring your number to find?

did you ever blow gum bubble in space,
stretch it bigger till it burst in your face?

did you ever play three gruff goats billy,
game with granddaughters giggling silly?

    I’ll never forget the time I popped a bubble and the gum stuck so hard to my face it actually peeled off some skin with it when I picked it off. Almost looked like a burn.

    No grandchildren or farmers involved, but guilty on the first two counts…(k)

    Great to be silly with your granddaughters. Then you find they’ve grown up and you haven’t.

    I remember wanting to blow a big enough bubble to burst in my face, but I could never get it big enough.
