Dead On My Feet

My legs have gone out
for a walk on the Wild Side
today,

I wish they’d have told me
that so many hours would pass
before I could rest them again,
but they had a mind of their own,

My toes are humming as well,
I would hum along, but I don’t recognize
the tune?

I think, my socks are welded onto my feet,
or they’ve gone charcoal grey in color,
along the way?

Don’t pity me, really
because the foot massage lady is on the way
-but I might be asleep,

before she arrives in Denmark
from Canada…

I’ll just hum a little tune, while I wait
and hope that the Foot Fairy is kind to me
while I sleep,

while I……….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Being Tired

Being tired
such an unnecessary waste
of energy

I would rather use
my tiredness, later on
in my life, when I have
much less to accomplish
than today,

I might just
write down my tired time
on a piece of paper,
reminding me to redeem
my tired shares later
when I am old and grey

“Have you saved up
for your retirement?”
– some might ask.

“Yes”, the answer might be
but I really didn’t care to answer
-nor did I want to go to the mailbox
-and post my tired hours
-and register their existence

being much too tired
to do so, you know……

The Wind Blew

The wind parted my hair today,

Not being expected, I took a mirror along

while I walked,

 

If I walked to the left, it parted to the left,

If I walked to the right, it parted to the right,

 

I told the wind, “It was time to part company”.

 

The Wind only laughed and said,”That is the part that I never

really understood, and blew onward”

 

I felt that we didn’t see eye to eye, and blew the other way to get

its attention.

 

The wind being rather disgruntled said,”We have now come to

the parting of ways”, and with that said,

 

It just blew me away with its indifference…..

Danish Travel Recipe for 3 Persons

Ingredients:
1. 3 people – various Nationalities.
(including 1 Chaperone)
2. One car with sufficient gas to avoid excuses
3. Various snacks
4. Yellow Car Alert Response (hit the person next to you when Yellow car is spotted)
5. Enough time for both sightseeing, and being late home to the wife with a poor excuse

Destination is the top of Denmark.

Be sure to add a good supply of doubt from someone’s mother, and an equal amount of doubt, about the driver’s real intentions.

Add the ingredients slowly, and be sure not to overheat the conversation with innuendos, and off-color conversation. Make sure the Chaperone is present at all times. If, in the event of Chaperone walkabout, then keep calm and assess the situation.

As the day progresses, be careful when striking the other persons with the Yellow Car Alert Response, as those bruises might take years to heal!

Remember to point out the interesting Flora and Fauna, and warn if Sheep are present, or their aromatic tendencies might just sour this recipe.

The snacks are to be consumed in place of nutritious food, and it is customary to leave a water bottle from your Home Country as an offering to the Danish Gods at Skagen.

If confronted with an unexpected question, try to divert attention by pointing out the Danish National Bird, The Seagull and its playful and magical ways!

If all goes well, with the ingredients mixed about with the ambience of the day, then remember to say something in Danish-French-English in order to make sure that everyone present, has had their needs seen to!

The finished product will resemble something like this:

mikkels-iphone6-pictures-066

with the Chaperone taking the picture, of course……


With any luck at all, this recipe can be used in the future,

with the taste increasing in intensity with each

subsequent attempt!


Bon App├ętit!

 

 

The 3 Women, and I

My New Girlfriend is not happy.

She feels left out. I can’t really blame her, having both a wife and a Fantasy Girlfriend, in advance, which means the bed is becoming a traffic jam ready to happen!

The sleeping arrangements seem to be the cause of this distress. I suggested having my wife first, then my Fantasy Girlfriend, then me, then my New Girlfriend.

“Why do I have to share you with your Fantasy Girlfriend?” she asked.

“Well, that is better than having me bicker with my wife, and My Fantasy Girlfriend is only around to remind me of being single again.”

 

Women! They don’t want to play 3rd fiddle for anyone.

It is just not easy pleasing some people……

Regrets about Falling in Love

I did, but she didn’t

She did, but I was on another planet

We both did, at the same time, but at the wrong moment

I wanted to, but I felt my time was better spent, reading a book about it

She threatened me with it, but I fended her off with a new love

My new love fell in love, but I was still thinking about my old love

I thought it might be easier by:

  • Standing in love
  • Then sitting in love
  • Finally moving to the floor from the chair

Falling seemed to be a bit too much for this old body……..
