Saturday Centus/Sunday 160: It's Not Funny!


why does she
laugh out loud...
every minute
of every hour
of every day?

what wickedness,
what cruel curse
is at play?

she’s not laughing?
‘tis hiccups you say?

never mind

As always, the prompt is in GREEN.

Okay...I know, I know...but's it all I could come up with after a 12 hour shift at the hospital. I took the liberty of combining 2 memes into one as tomorrow is another workday for me.

Great one! Mine is lame as all hell. Not even sure why I did it. Oh yeah, that mosaic. I did it for swag.

12 hours? And back tomorrow? Gah! Get some rest, cutie.

Clever you! This was so creative. I hope you get some rest one of these days! Those 12 hour shifts must be a killer.

The embarrassment of hiccups. Funny you would post this - last night at a party Mrs. MM got hiccups in the midst conversation. I know how irritated she must have felt. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160.

Pollyanna...
It wouldn't be the first time you combined prompts now would it?

The hiccups are really only funny to the person not suffering from them...and then it's just bad form to laugh!
