REALLY AWFUL RHYME (in collaboration with granddaughter J); AND REALLY AWFUL EQUATION


Flying thingy 1 Flying thingy 2

Tell me, what is this here bug? The identity is bugging me.

For the benefit of those seriously deranged people who have missed my Really Awful Rhymes: apologies, but the best one (or, rather, that should read ‘only one’) I have come up with recently is what 3-year-old little J and I evolved on the way home from her pre-school yesterday.

‘Roses are blue

And violets are red …’

‘I don’t think you

Are right in the head!’

She informed me gleefully on the same trip that her teacher ‘nearly fell over’ when she told her she had planted her own Plectranthus.

Anyway, a quick mathematical explanation of my current position:

TA = (W+C+S+E)-(F+B)

(Where TA is Time Available, W is work time, C is chore time, S is sleep time, E is eating time, F is fun time, and B is blogging time.)

What we have briefly at the moment is:

TA = (W+C+E+B)-F+(S-B)

Any questions?

    The talent for word play is rubbing off on little J. Hope life settles down for you soon.

    Seems like J takes after her granddad

    After reading your poem/post/rhyme, and then the comments here,, I think I will abstain to commenting… heehaa! smiling embarrassingly…


  5. bulldog says:

    I love the poem… but the algebraic formula tells me you have a major problem…. maybe you need a 36 hour day… slow the sun down


  6. misswhiplash says:

    The last line is very apt…..confusion in brain..I never was very good at algebra….but I think you need more sleep time


  7. I think Little J has got the measure of you, Col. 🙂


  8. Arkenaten says:

    No real clue of the bug’s ID. Some sort of Hover Fly perhaps?


  9. Glad to see these again, Col. Hope the move is all behind you now.


  10. Um? Do I take it that you are being stretched in about 6 directions. Something’s got to give.


  11. Pussycat44 says:

    TA = W+C+E+B-F+S-B
    B = W+C+E +B-F+S / TA
    i.e. B < 0
