When I was younger, I loved poetry. If I'm not mistaken, I actually think I got my start with writing there. I really liked Shel Silverstein. I didn't realize it at the time, but I think he expanded my imagination while his funny writing and pictures helped with some of the places I couldn't understand certain parts of my story growing up.

I liked memorizing some of my favorite poems. I can remember one that particularly stuck out to me.  It was called "Sick." You might know it. It's about a little girl who goes on and on and she happens to have all these problems and conditions until she realizes that it's Saturday, and she is going to leave them all behind and go play. The poem is an exaggeration of what I felt dealing with pain or any other yucks in my day, but it was funny to me and for some reason, it was a poem I liked performing for my own entertainment.
Here is a little fun for your Friday to show you how far we have come with technology.

  1. I vaguely remember the poem. Thank you for the re-wind. The YouTube version is very amusing... A vivid reminder to not over-use/misuse words. An ache is an ACHE, not an excuse.

    Nice to meet you,
