On the sixteenth day of December

Friday the 13th came three days late!




Now who would spray a bathroom floor
with cleaner, then just go
into another room to sort
her laundry!  Who?  You know!

And who, forgetting floor was wet,
would later holler, “Whoa’’
as feet slipped out from under as
she landed!  Who?  You know.

And just because the wall was there
her head incurred a blow,
perhaps to knock some sense inside
her noggin. Who?  You know!

And who is now quite tender,
still lying rather low
with ice pack on her derriere?
How stupid!  Who?  You know!



Tell me, do you see a cat's face in the rear portion of the sparrow, or may it be something to do with cracking the back of my head on the wall?

  1. A slippin' and a slidin'
    is not so good to do
    but a smashin' and a crashin'
    Oh my... poor poor you!

    I hope you're feeling much better before too long, Glo.

    And yes, I absolutely do see the cat face on the ends of the wings. I didn't at first but then I tried squinting and immediately saw my boy, Skitty! That's uncanny.

  4. OUCH - sounds painful - I know what you are going through - I had a fall earlier in the year and hurt in places I didn't know existed. Yes I can see the cat's face - well spotted.

    1. Hi Elaine ~ Falling is painful, as you know! On the mend now though. Glad you saw the cat's face, too.
