One person, two sides

12 Apr

I took two pictures over the last week, and I keep thinking: I am the picture.

First I took this picture. Yay! Spring! Happy.

Then I took this picture. Boo. Clouds. Sad face.

All week I was like: Yay! Be happy.

All week it was more like: Boo. Sad face.

But the week is over. It’s Friday!

*crowd cheers*

Enjoy your weekend.

Go be some of this:

I am spring.

How many of you felt like the happy version this week? How many of you struggled with the sad version?

I have good news for all of you.

It’s Friday! Go party (in the safety of your own home).

Long overdue love ode: When’s the last time you gave Friday a flower?

22 Mar

Dear Friday,

I just wanted to tell you that you look really pretty today.
I was thinking that maybe you’re under-appreciated and thought hey,
when’s the last time I gave Friday a flower?

A day deserves some loving when it has so much power.
A day deserves some loving when it never, ever cowers.

All I can do is honor you with this horrible poem.
And know that every time you come around, I no longer feel alone.

I love you, Friday.
Don’t tell my husband.
I love you, Friday.
You should be in a rock band.

I give you one flower for always being dependable.
I give you another flower for always being reasonable.

You come at the end of the week, but you’re really the beginning.
You’re modest, but every time you come around I feel like I’m winning.

Thank you, Friday.

Here’s a flower:

So… what kind of flower are you giving Friday?

Fair warning: Even a hint of enthusiasm for this poem will probably lead to more poetry about inanimate objects. You’ve been cautioned.
