Haiku Friday: the opposite sex -- loved and lost -- edition

Haiku Friday

In the interest of writing haiku as "the opposite sex," as per Jennifer and Christina's instructions ...

If I were a man,
I would tell me to buck up
and to get a grip.

If I were a man,
I would tell me to listen
to logic and hush.

But I'm not a man --
this loss cuts me to the heart.
I've been deserted.

Please say it's not gone ...
my diet cherry choc'late
Dr. Pepper -- noooooooooooooooooo!

Sounds nummy! Glad I missed it because I get kind of emotional when things I like go away. Not. Fair.

you can blog roll me! of course you can. it's just the comment thingy because...when you comment, it ends up in google. and...if my in-laws are smart...at all...they'll google. which will lead them to the new place...which will lead me to having to come up with a new and clever blog name...which will lead me to having to go through this all over again. but...roll me, baby!!

Oh, goodness. I'm so sorry. I know how much you love it. Send me your addy. I'll send you some if I can still get my hands on it. Being close to the factory has advantages.

That was a great haiku! Love the way you tied in the theme this week.

I'm starting a fun new meme about children on Tuesday. I would love it if you joined in, as I always enjoy reading your posts.

Have a great weekend!!

Jenni said...

Suck it up, woman!
Aspartame is bad for you
This is for the best

Just kidding. Sort of. Aspartame gives me the shakes. I guess you'll have to find a new addiction.

Kathryn said...

That was very clever! Too funny!

Immoral Matriarch said...

I love Dr. Pepper. But only normal Dr. Pepper.

Queen of Shake-Shake said...

Oh no they didn't! They stopped making it? Stupid people.

Michelle said...

Things like this make me realize how out of touch I am on some pop culture -- I didn't even know they made this!

Love the haiku, too funny -- and not the punchline I was expecting.

Oh, and yay to AllMediocre for sending me your way!

Sandy C. said...

LOL! You crack me up :) So bummed I missed that Dr Pepper. Oh, and sorry for your loss. :(

Joy T. said...

I rarely drink pop but do you know I have never tasted Dr. Pepper in my life? Not sure why. Great Haiku!

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

I was able to buy it twice before it disappeared. TWICE. I'm so pissed.

Janet said...

They took away my vanilla coke too.
