“We Interrupt This Sentence…”

photo 1-10Today  I  am excited.  I just want to share with someone.  Anyone.  But, maybe not.  Listen . . .


ME:  Guess what?  I’m in a Huff . . .

MY MOTHER:  Well dear, why should today be any different?  You’re always in a foul mood about something.  Go do some Yoga.

ME:  Hi Honey.  Wanna hear my story about Huff. . . ?

SON:  No, Mommy.  I’m sick of the 3 Little Pigs and the big bad wolf who Huffed & Puffed and blew the house down.  I wanna hear Peter Pan.

A good advertisement for breath mints?

ME:  Hi Grandma, I have something to announce – – today I’m in the Huff. . .

GRANDMOTHER:  Tsk, you young people today.  And your silly Nudist fads.  Well, have fun.

ME:  What???  No, Grandma,  I didn’t say “I’m in the Buff.”    Gram?  Grammy?  Hello?

ME:  Hey, I wrote a humor post and you’ll never believe it, but Huff. . .

WRITER FRIEND:  No kidding!  We’re on the same page.  My poem today is about the same subject.  Listen.

Things are rough

Money ain’t enough,

Living off the cuff,

Much easier to bluff,

Or be a cream puff.

Until you send your stuff,

And get published on the HUFF…

ME:   Stop.  Get Out!  YOU got on the Huffington Post with THAT kind of writing?

WRITER FRIEND: (snort)  Yep, sure did.  Now let’s hear your news. . . Little Miss Menopause.

ME:  Never mind.

(Pssssst.   I think it’s safe to tell you.  I AM A FEATURED BLOGGER ON HUFFINGTON POST TODAY.  I would be ever so honored if you’d take a minute to visit that link and leave me a comment at the bottom of my post over there.  Feeling extra generous?  Sharing the post with one of their Share buttons would make my day!  UPDATE:  Not sure how this happened but I was just notified that a SECOND POST OF MINE IS NOW BEING FEATURED ON HUFFINGTON POST COMEDY.  If you can find an extra moment to visit that one here, I would be thrilled.

  1. I did what I could to get numbers over at HuffPo for you immediately. Now I want to get over there and leave a comment, but I have to catch up with you here first. I’m really glad to see you rolling along 🙂


  2. Well now! Just awesome that Huff Post recognizes your talent and how much you make all of us smile! I’d read the first one, but the Godd Post is great, too!


  3. Reblogged this on DrShapero's Blog and commented:
    Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritation and resentments slip away, and a sunny spirit takes their place. ~Mark Twain
    Give yourself some levity and enjoy this marvelous work of humor.

    In Health, Dr. Shapero


  4. Ha! Don’t be so gruff about the poem. Very funny article. I am so very happy for you. I know it was persistence and follow through with lots of talent that has finally paid off. Simply tremendous. You certainly deserve it.

  5. You had me scared there for a bit. I thought you were going to say, “I will huff and puff and blow your house down.” I was shaking in my booties. Then I got to the end and you could have heard my sigh of relieve all the way to Miami.

    Congratulations. It’s well deserved. You know you are the second blogger I follow that has been published in a national venue. The other one is Aussa Lorens and she was recently in Cosmopolitan. http://aussalorens.com/2014/09/02/aussa-lorens-cosmopolitan/

    One final question: You’re not going to date a guy who goes from Almighty to Alrighty, are you? You can do better than that. I hear Lucifer been looking for a new girl friend. He wants someone who is up for a hot time in the old town tonight.

      • Oh! Excitement or a worry over there concerning your move?

        I am happy to report that we are finally coming out the other side of this phase of the move (of course, there will be one more move into a real home next but for now anyway, we are almost settled).

        What’s up in your world? What’s happening that you might have to move? How far? Do you have any idea where yet?

        Sorry it took me so long to reply, I’m so chuffed to get this personal tidbit from you but we were getting through our last visit home yesterday and I was too tired when I got back to even check on here!


Hark! I'd LOVE to hear your remark . . .
