haiku wednesday - has it been that long already? edition

This week's words are figure, juicy, stress
I think I missed two weeks in a row. Business travel just sucks the days right out of the calendar. Also, isn't it funny how, when kids are babies, we look forward to when they're teens because we'll have so much more free time? And isn't it funnier that when we finally get there, there's even less free time?

As you'll see below, this week I engage in epic haiku failure.  (Actually, I kinda like the middle one.)

juicy that guy? wow!
you stress wrong syllables, man
figure it out, dude

stress over diets
when she looks in the mirror
juicy pear figure

centerfold figure
they call her "juicy lucy"
parent's midnight stress

Thanks for giving us a choice. You were right the middle one is great.

Altonian said...

Yep! They're all good, but if I had to choose one, it would be three - if that makes sense.
