Recently revised this limerick ( as I learned more about number of syllables for traditional limericks ) for my brother. Back story: When he was three or four, all he wanted to eat were Cheerios, hot dogs, peanut butter and ketchup sandwiches, which leads me to a limerick about Wonder bread.
Hey @DeahWA how did you know? My mom made sure each of her children had something they excelled in. My brother Steve music and song writing, my brother Matt engineering, math and computers and I was always always the "crafty" and literary one. Crochet, needlepoint, counted cross stitch, looming hats, jewelry making, reading and writing. Now I can add limericks and ink and water colors. Of course I can get totally nerdy and mention my love of sudoku, trivia books and Quiddler, Boggle and Rumi Kubes. Learning Mexican Train with dominos this week with my hubby.
I found a blog that has a limerick contest every two weeks. Going to try it out.
What are you up to? Any more progress on your book? --- Christine
Steve the @postman29 another awesome, award-winning limerick. I think it's time to admit we have a serious limerick writing addiction. That's always the first step right? Not sure if I can find an AA like support group, kind of specialized. My husband continues to support this crazy new hobby. Does your wife think it's a little bit crazy, cheesy or nerdy? --- Christine
Christine, she's not into limericks but likes that I've found another hobby lol! It gives her more quiet time to watch British mysteries and comedies! I think she's got the right idea. No addiction there.
Steve the @postman29 , That's good. My hubby and I are finishing up a series called "Reign" on Netflix. Got to go make bean burritos, so we can view it in style.😃 Going to take a few days off. Rest my overwork limerick rhyming brain. Hopefully, I don't start dreaming in rhyme! Take care, enjoy the weekend. --- Christine the limericker 😄
You also Christine. We love those burritos here! Hope you both enjoy your weekend and Netflix. The only Reign we have here is spelled rain. Glad I mowed the lawn yesterday lol. Movie day for my wife and I tomorrow. Get rest. I look forward to your next limerick post or whatever creative post you come up with. Steve 😊
Steve the @postman29 , Couldn't resist, they had a post about favorite 80's movies in the entertainment forum and a limerick poured right out. Ugh, a blessing and a curse. 😄 --- Christine the Limericker
