Happy Father’s Day

Do you remember Mother’s Day? It was only a little over a month ago.  If you read my blog then you would know about the poem that my brother B6 wrote for Mother’s Day.

Well… now there is a sequel.

Living with 2 sisters, Aunt and Elcnu *
you realized that they were quite a BORE-ah.
You wanted a family to call your own,
as well as a house and working throne.
You wanted a wife so you searched and searched
and finally met her through the church.
After months of dating you popped the question,
got married and started the love session.
Kids 1 through 5 turned up girls
you could not wait for a son to unfurl.
A son is born; you’re not alone
you told grandmother she hung up the phone.
So glad you are to have a son by your side,
you shed a tear, might even cried.
You told your son he would be great,
your wife responded “honey I’m late.”
The last child was born a daughter no less
who kicks her leg and screams out YES!!!
Throughout 10 years, 7 children you loined
I bet you had a lot of ice on your groin.
2 vs 7 hardly seems fair,
unless you’re counting quantity of hair.
The men take that with the greatest of ease
though you said “B6 stop making these cards would you please!”

*Names change to hide identity.  “Uncle” is spelled backwards because we sometimes refer to that uncle with his own named backwards (not in his presence though) and then it rhymes with BORE-ah.  And when his name is spelled backwards, it is very similar to a female name so that’s why it’s “two sisters.”

Friday Fill-Ins

Every Friday, I’ll be participating in Friday Fill-Ins.

1. One of my favorite birthday presents was the company of friends.  Because it doesn’t happen often.

2. Instead of riot, all they had to do was go home, it was as simple as that.

3. The moon at night would be very fun to look at, if I was in the arms of someone while looking.

4. My get-it-on playlist includes Ginuwine’s “So Anxious”.

5. I was tempted by sales on chips today, but I did not buy!

6. Wandering the city and seeing the local nature are some of the things I like to do on vacation.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to not being at home (wherever that may be), tomorrow my plans include working (when do they not) and Sunday, I want to go back to the hometown for some BBQ for Father’s Day!

Friday Fill-Ins

Every Friday, I’ll be participating in Friday Fill-Ins.

1. I remember when I first heard about Princess Diana’s death. I was babysitting across the street. And I thought “Now there’s nothing on TV.”  Lack of empathy as a teenager? Or serious problems?

2. I really want the love of a man to be showering down on me. Selfish?

3. Most humans live in Asia.

4. I still have no friends…sound familiar?   (There’s a new story behind this that I don’t want to go into.)

5. I was inspired by a family cruise a few years ago to maybe go on vacation to the Dominican Republic.

6. I think I’ve lost my mind and who knows where it is!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to going to the Eat! Vancouver show with littlespace, tomorrow my plans include vegging out and Sunday, I want to check out the local Farmer’s Market!
