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
