Alphabe-Thursday: The Letter B




TO B OR NOT TO B


In honor of the letter B, please indulge me while I pen the following:

Beastly boisterous boys behaving badly behind Best Buy, 
brandishing broken bottles.
Big bully Billy blatantly boinked Bobby's buttocks.
Bobby bled.
Billy bolted.
Bummer.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The Bellyache


My son was complaining of a bellyache the other day. He said it could be from something he ate. I asked him what he had. The following conversation ensued:


"Well," he began, "I had a bowl of Goldfish."
"That doesn't sound bad."
"I mixed in some sweet tarts."
"Oh, kind of like a trail mix. That still seems pretty tame."
"Actually, I squirted chocolate syrup all over the top."
"Ewww!"
"And I added chocolate pudding."
"And you ate that?"
"Uh huh."
"Yes, I can see how that would give you a bellyache."

Funny! Did that really happen? I could see one of my 4 grandsons making up a concoction like that. Yech.

What a great, creative post. And your son gets points for making his own snack, but perhaps he could use some cooking lessons? This made me laugh out loud. Kathy

Oh, the teacher in me does love your alliteration! Fantastic job! Cute, clever post 5th Sister!

Willoughby said...

Very clever!

Munchie Boy's snack does sound like it would give you a bellyache! I do have to give him points for creative use of ingredients, though.

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

Just the thought of eating that gave me a bellyache!

Jenny said...

Wow, you are the master of alliteration. I tried to find a B word in my thesauras that meant the same thing but there wasn't one.

Loved your bellyache story, too!

You are a funny, funny girl!

A+ for you!

Billy better behave better because Bobby's been blabbering "Burn, Billy, burn!"

Breaking bulletin: Billy bolted.

Boston.

Bye, Billy.

Bum.

Tummy ache? One bite of that would have landed me in the hospital. Oh the resiliency of youth!

Amy said...
