One Of These Days, I’ll Actually Say This

This week’s theme over at BlogFriday is annoyances, and I’m betting this scenario will ring a bell:

One Of These Days, I’ll Actually Say This (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

We’re annoyed by your motormouth child.
He is boist’rous and noisy and wild.
So please put a lid
On your rude, rowdy kid.
Cuz, trust me, we aren’t beguiled.

    Oh, I love that!

    There was the time that I was so NOT in the mood to listen to some little kid who just kept staring at me and telling me he couldn’t see me (his mother told him that strangers couldn’t see him). I finally got fed up, and when he said for the umpteenth time “you can’t see me, hahaha”, I told him that I wish I couldn’t hear him either. THAT got his mom’s attention and he left me alone after that.

    Other than that, I love kids.

    Oh… I have too many appropriate opportunities for this clever limerick.

    I guess my grandson may actually be known as motormouth, but does that make him rude and wild? I had rather him be talking than in the hospital dying. If some adults would listen to the children more than we may have less what you call motormouths.
