Gravity

Oh my word.  This A to Z challenge is making me do things I never thought possible.  Or necessary.

People, I wrote a poem.

Oh get up off the floor.  It's not that big of a deal.  It's just an acrostic.  I'm not even rhyming or anything.

I shall dedicate my poem to my two boys who have the darndest time making it through a meal without literally falling out of their chairs.  Turken will be sitting across from me when, mid-sentence, he simply disappears.  Star has fallen out of his chair more times than Taylor Swift has fallen out of love.  It really is ridiculous.

This acrostic is for them.

Gabbing with my family and
Relishing Mom's meal when
An invisible monster
Very handily
Isaac Newtons me
To the ground.
Youch.



Have a lovely day!

    1. So very true. But I would rather write a poem making fun of my kids than reminding myself of the ever-worsening droop.

    1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one laughing about this. I have been cracking up the entire four days I've had to wait for this to go "live". Thank you, thank you, thank you for having the same sense of humor as me. Love you, too!

  3. I can just picture it, kid disapears and every one sits there laughing. No worry I fell off a ladder once and when I looked up three faces were looking out of the window laughing away at my groning in pain.

    1. It must be human nature. As long as no one is hurt too badly, falls are just funny.

  4. Love how you made "Isaac Newton" into a verb. It's definitely going to become new slang one day...;)

    1. I'll be famous one way or another. If I have to make up words to do it, so be it. :)

  5. Sniffle, sniffle. Your poem touched my heart! Seriously, I loved it. That's what families are for... to pick us up even if they are laughing while doing it!

  8. Yep, I concur with other commenters - today is a new day, ladies and gentlemen - never until this day but now, foreverore, each person can be Isaac Newton'd. No wonder you've been keeping it quiet - you just changed history XD

  13. Hells yeah! *High Five* for non-rhyming poetry! Thankfully gravity doesn't affect me with an ill effect often; even when naked ;-)

    1. Jak, Jak, Jak. While I will high five you for the poetry, I think it's a little too soon in our relationship to be discussing your nakedness. :)

    2. Hahahaha I fully agree! I was following suit with the first comment :) You may come to wish I had vanished!

    3. Ha! My short term memory is completely awful. I had already forgotten about her comment when I read yours.
