Sometimes the funniest moments come during family gatherings. The assortment of different personalities and ages can create a recipe for hilarity. Let’s celebrate those unforgettable occasions with all the characters that make up a family.
Thanks to everyone who participated in last week’s poetry prompt. Here is an amusing poem from Laura we enjoyed:
Yes, you look familiar, too.
I’m about to catch the bus—
I did go to P.S. 132.
You were the one who didn’t eat cheese
and gave me yours in the caf.
Remember spoon-catapulting peas
to make that sad kid laugh?
And learning to write, when we figured out
one letter could change a word—
see bee pee, boot toot poot—
and the principal overheard?
And behind the pull-down map of the earth
when you tried to give me a kiss?
Nah, there’ll be another. It’s worth
missing a bus for this.
