Today 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.
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.
