A Rainy Day

aros, Day 8

Monday stayed home sick today
he was up all night complaining
with thunderous outbursts, discontent
and when he finally showed his face
at Morning Dawn's drive-in show
sallow was his color, off
so in he'll stay today.

OOh, those thunderous outbursts when one doesn't feel good can be hard to listen to. You really are doing well keeping up with the 'stones.'

Rainy in and out. Bummer. Days home make memories of mothers' hands. :)

Not a big fan of 'thunderous outbursts' when associated with illness. Rest is called for.

Dave King said...

Clever piece of writing. Bravo.

Laurie Kolp said...

Thanks all, but Monday is no child...

I've seen a few of those Mondays. Bed rest is definitely the best solution. Great word picture.

Oh Monday blues and I'm sick too. This is very appreciated.

I caught Monday's bug and it filtered into Tuesday. Clever write.
