Haiku Friday: the know-it-all edition

Haiku Friday

It's difficult to
stay in my own digs today:
There's no hot water.

So I'm vacating
the premises to house-sit
for Burgh Baby's mom.

Come visit me there
as I dispense great advice
for raising daughters.

The whole no hot water thing would get really old after about the first hour or so of not having it. Ugh. Hope it's back soon!

Loved your Burgh's advice column! Although as the geeky mom, I have to point out that it's not just the "old folks" that have an aneurysm every time they see the word "prolly." I hate what instant messaging and texting have done to the poor, defenseless English language. :)

"poor, defenseless English language." This? The language that understands the one finger salute? This? The language that told French, "Sorry!! but you've dropped your gun." This? The language that's told Arabic, "Take your scimitar and shove it." Never poor. Never defensless. Triumphant!! I say. Triumphant. And no, that's not an instrument.

Sorry, I just had to.

The first person to ever guest on Burgh. Do you feel the honor?

LceeL said...

Sorry, Janet. I have no idea where that came from.

Burgh Baby said...

Thanks for filling in!

Being without electricity would be 10x's worse! Hot water, I can definitely deal without for a while.

cacklinrose said...

I'm headed over there right now. I need some girly raising advice- have you met my kids??

Mom24 said...

I love a good hot shower. Hope things are back to normal soon.

Janet said...

No hot water? Oh, the humanity!!!

uh, too melodramatic?

I didn't think so.

Hey, when you need a blog to visit you can come write in the woods, and we can REALLY confuse people!

So I totally thought you were going to Pittsburgh when I first read that. I was going to tell you good places to see. lol
