Any Reason to Drink Coffee


As I am sipping my coffee, laced with cinnamon and nutmeg, it is Sunday afternoon.  The football game is on and Paul and Amanda are watching the TV intently. Paul is excitedly giving a blow by blow description of the plays to Amanda.

Amanda, using her tail as a pillow, says “I am a cat and I don’t understand what all the hoopla is about.”  “And Paul, my dear human, it is my turn to lie on the heating pad!”

You know, these two are quite the pair – never ending amusement and cuteness. But, enough of their chatter for a while, and I believe they are overdue for a nap. Now that my chores are finished and the noise has died down, it is time for me, myself and me. Time to unleash the words mingling and muddling in the attic.

If I weren’t so fickle

I wouldn’t be in this pickle

I forgot my ABC’s



 A clueless find

The feebleness of a suffering mind

An unsolved  crossword puzzle


Beautiful and bold

A story to behold

Ugly and sad

Images of evil and bad



Perfection in oration

not to lose sight of translation

    You drink coffee like my husband does, with the little additives. He likes to add a little piece of dark chocolate, too. This is a very creative little post. Nicely done.
