A Poem

I just received this poem in an email from a friend, and I knew I just had to share it. I know many of you can relate ...

I asked the Lord to tell me
Why my house is such a mess.
He asked if I'd been 'computering',
And I had to answer "yes."

He told me to get off my backside
And tidy up the house.
And so I started cleaning up...
The smudges off my mouse.

I wiped and shined the topside.
That really did the trick...
I was just admiring my work...
I didn't mean to 'click.'

But click, I did, and oops I found
A real absorbing site
That I got SO way into...
I was into it all night. ((sigh))

Nothing's changed except my mouse
It's very, very shiny.
I guess my house will stay a mess...
While I sit here on my hiney.

Take care,

Sounds like my place. I don't have dust...I have dirt heaps. It's too bad, isn't it?

Happy birthday to your mum. I hope she has a lovely time.

Take care.

I sure can relate.

My house is quite a mess
Of that I can confess.

I saw the cutest cat on my calendar today and it made me think of you. So I HAD to come by and see how you are.

Hmm, that does sound familiar. Did you write it or find it somewhere during your browsing online?

There used to be a TV commercial over here about a wax with a sarcastic sounding TV character singing this: "Wiping and shining!/Wiping and SHINing...WIIIPIIIING........and....Shiiiniiiing!"
(It's hard to sing on a Blog Comment)! :)
