FOOLED YOU, FOOL!

 

Life has been soooo busy lately.  I am happy to be able to again join Saturday Centus at Jenny Matlock’s Off On My Tangent.  Thank you for hosting, Jenny.

FOOLED YOU, FOOL!

(Prompt:  I planted a little story seed)

We’d been dating almost four years.

I cooked grand meals to serve each night,

I brought to him three nightly beers,

And choked back words to avoid a fight.

~~~

I planted a little story seed of a life of ease,

Of king of the castle, and of married bliss.

He should have known I was being a tease,

And that this was a life he’d one day miss.

~~~

Now when he demands the television remote,

I hold the desired gadget tightly in my hand,

And say, “It’s now sailed – your storybook boat,

For you are, at last, a happily married man.”

~~~

This is completely fictional.  My husband is no fool, and I did NOT trick him into marrying me (at least I don’t THINK I did – that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it).  Thank you for visiting my blog.  laurie

Not too far from the truth for some people. I'm not so sure that ends up being a happy life, ha. Good job.

Excellent Laurie !

So true to life and funny !
I think your 'inner critic' should take a permanent vacation on Alpha Centuri because your offerings week after week are really good !!!
