A word with Laurie: burlap

PicGifs.com

Mrs. Trellis accused me today
of writing something that led her to say
her guilty pleasure is underwear
designed to cause all men to stare.
How dare she? I cried.
How dare? How dare?
So I have decided to send, by air,
a package of sackcloth underwear
for Mrs. Trellis to wear next week,
and Mr. Trellis has promised to peek
to tell me if she refuses, mayhap,
her early Christmas gift of burlap.

Hilarious, as always, kiddo!

Funny!

Grandmother said...

I read the guilty pleasure of Mrs. Trellis and laughed until I cried. Good response, good intervention. She needs an intervention!

Mary said...

This made me laugh, Kay! I love your sense of fun.

Friko said...

That’s very funny.
Mind you, burlap underwear? If I knew what burlap is I’d probably find it very scratchy. And likely to kill all passionate inclinations.

Helen said...

Itchy, twitchy, and oh so uncomfortable ... poor Ada!!

Peggy said...

Oh ouch! burlap underwear! Fun poem.

Kateri said...

So this completely made me giggle, especially after reading Mrs. Trellis's poem that inspired it...

Grace said...

Something tells me Mrs. Trellis will NOT be accepting her early Christmas gift. Very cute!

sounds like a great idea

Susan said...

Too funny! Her poem did not shock, but her picture did, as I am a prude overall. Sack cloth and ashes indeed! And then, she was more truthful about guilty pleasures than most and deserves it least.
