Home, Quite Alone...

Rating: 5.0

My family drove off mere hours ago
to visit Grandma on her birthday,
thus I am home and quite all alone.

First thing I undertook post-farewell
was doff my duds down to the undies,
hotter, t'was, than Homer Simpson's hell.

Ne'er may I dance to song as I please - -
tho' the spirit may often move me,

for my kin fling up arms, shriek and tease.

Well, Esther, this made me laugh aloud. I refuse to believe the 'Elaine' bit - you're obviously a ballerina. The rest - eh, I'm sure every word is true. So, were the police involved? - Will

Oh, Darling Essemee! ! Only you would dance in your underwear and lock yourself out! ! Or even the thought of it to come to you! ! How funny, to think of you cowering under the deck! And how tasty those bugs started to look - - too funny! !

Esther, You have told your sorrowful-humorous tale very well. I can imagine the abandoned joy of your dancing as you slowly disrobe only to finD? Horrow of horrows! The awful realisation? Clever the change of line length. It worked very well. You have captured the episode brilliantly. love, Allie xxxxxxxx

Oh, no no no no! Undies firmly in place, both sets, top n' bottom! Of course, it all happened inside; so very hot out there, saying bye, it took some time to cool down, so...
