storm troopers

Corpus Christi, Texas
is bracing for a hurricane;
I am fasting, preparing
for my colonoscopy;
both I and my birthplace
are being evacuated.

Thank the Lord I was not drinking coffee when I read this!

I'm not sure what the weather equivalent of polyps are but hope neither of you have any.


Hope PG is still away from her coffee.

That was a laugh-out-loud moment, Milt - thanks.

Any other time, I would laugh.

That was terrific. Totally unexpected punchline!

Praying for the evacuees and your colon ... May all be well cared for.

I'm behind as usual, no pun intended of course. I assume everything came out in the end? (dammit, I really did not plan that)

I know you were sleeping so I'm sure it didn't hurt. You're still writing so you're still okay, right?

So, I linked to your poem awhile back, and something interesting has happened. Do me a favor: Google "Greatest Poem Ever." And scroll down a bit. I've gotten quite a few hits this way. :)

Think of it: Everyone someone looks for some magical line, he or she will find your words of wisdom! :)
