Tonight, I typed in a strange concoction of a word, and got a real word. Farfetch, not really that odd of a word. It reminds me of different things. I guess I just never had put this combination together.
Of course, you are going to know the definition without my placing it here; but I will set it in place.
Sitting here on my computer typing away, my mind can wander easily. I often get some crazy ideas for writing, or I will think of ways to solve my problems. Or I may be considering what words I can say to bring comfort to others in need.
You all know that I am involved with Multiple System Atrophy. I try very hard to bring comfort, but who am I? Nothing more than someone behind this screen. Most of you have never met me, so I work hard to help comfort breaking hearts or give suggestions on what direction they may want to go next.
With this new word I discovered tonight, I will use it to bring a little silliness to end this day. Maybe a smile or a chuckle, but no tears tonight. I have to work hard to do this because my mind is always in help mode. So, my friends, here goes nothing.
A LITTLE CHUCKLE
Gramps was sitting in his recliner
Watching his favorite show
When he got this itch
To get up and go.
He didn’t wanna do it
So he twisted and turned
He moaned a little loud
He turned the volume down a bit.
He was hankering for a snack
His mouth could taste it good
But he had to get her attention
But she was asleep in the sack.
He cried out her name
His voice sounding strong
This had become a big challenge
It had turned into a game
She finally appeared
Rubbing eyes with her hands
“What in the world is the matter”?
She stated and leered.
“Honey, I have a craving
Can you get me a snack
I am watching this program
I don’t want to miss a thing”.
She walked over to the shelf
She turned the TV remote off
She knocked his chair over
Saying, “Get it yourself”.
