Word-High July: Balintataw



With my clear eyes
I saw how she lit up
when you gave her the bouquet.
And how she swiftly turned white
when you said,
you got the wrong girl.

  1. Ah ha ha ha….ha ha hah!…Oh you clever, clever you, Rosemarie! This is so amusing. Embarrassing? Yep! But, funny as can be. LOVE your sense of humor. And, the timing and punchline was perfect.

    1. I think it is funny for those who was able to see the incident and sad for the girl. I can imagine that it is such a grim experience. And yes, some might have suffered such fate.


      1. 🙂 My one year blog anniversary is September 1. But your body count exceeds mine. We’ll see if that changes now that I’m writing shorter pieces 🙂 Yes you did bomb a bus! Didn’t you also explode part of a city?
