Absolute Proof

    I strategically place glittery footprints

indicating Santa’s route 

from the mantel 

where bulging stockings hang

to the gifts 

placed beneath the evergreen boughs.

   I nibble Santa’s cookies,

 drink his milk.

   With proof of Santa’s existence assured,

 I wait,

for Christmas to dawn.

Let's Go Again!

    Unprepared for the explosion of force that propelled me 420 feet skyward at a dizzying 120 miles per hour, 

I white knuckled the restraints screaming.  

Plummeting back to earth seemed terrifyingly faster.  

 I saw God.  


I shit myself...

like a boss.

Ready When You Are

     A crock pot filled with seasoned sirloin swimming in a sea of mushroom soup with carrots, celery, potatoes, and onions for companions.
     Nonstop chatter peppered with laughter and a pinch of heated debate washed down with tall glasses of ice cold water.

Say What?

“So,  if six chickens laid nine eggs a week, how many did the duck lay?”  

What kind of question is that?

 I hate story problems! 

Is this a trick question where I am solving for x?  




I’m screwed!
