Six truths and one poem
I guess photobloggers are Fun people ! A photoblogger who has featured often on this blog recently posted this :
Six Truths in Life
1 . You cannot stick your tongue out and look up at the ceiling at the same time, a physical impossibility due to the tendons within your neck .
2 . All idiots, after reading #1 will try it .
3 . And discover #1 is a lie .
4 . You are smiling now because you are an idiot .
5 . You soon will forward this to another idiot .
6 . There is still a stupid smile on your face .
I actually tried step no 1. Before reading step no 2.
Besides hearing the tendons in my neck laugh hysterically, I also noticed some leaking spots on our ceiling. And a poem happened. ....:-))
The terrace leaks, helpless in the rains, and the rods in the slab crack up, shaking the concrete, shedding tears of hilarity into the room, watching an old lady, sticking her tongue out and looking up at them....
And the muscles of the neck, twist themselves in disgust, as she smiles to herself and says, "Idiot or not, one more laugh for the day.... !"
