Haiku Friday: teenage conspiracy theories

Haiku Friday


Did you take my shorts?
Cuz they aren't in the dryer
where I had left them.

Everybody takes
my stuff and I never know
where anything is.

Was it you? Or you?
Maybe it was you. Or YOU.
It sure wasn't me.

I hate that no one
ever leaves my stuff alone.
*foot stamp plus door slam*

Oh. I found my shorts.
I guess they were put away
into my dresser.

How was I supposed
to know that they were in there?
Jeez, Mom, just calm down!

What a familiar story! And it applies to both sons and daughters!

Putting it all into haiku makes it sound so funny!

Kelley said...

Bwaaaaaa haaaaa haaaaaaaaa!

But add 'they were neatly folded and in the dresser but now on the floor after I pulled the room apart looking for something else'

It is not just teens! My 9 tear old is the same way!!! I think she is a teen before her time. GAH!

nikki said...

Yeah, remember that whole stalking comment? I promise to return the shorts shortly.

Boys do that stuff, too. Once, #3 son was sent out to the gazebo to get something his mother had left out there. He was told it was on the table. He came back and said those immortal words - "I can't find it." SWMBO went out there and found it in a chair NEXT to the table. In plain sight.

LOL!

Not just a teenage conspiracy theory, my husband is the same way!! We just had a conversation about socks that went exactly like this...even ended with me saying "You, know, there is no grand conspiracy to lose your socks in the laundry!".

Great haiku!

Debbie said...

Oh that last line got me! My middle son says "Calm down" to everyone anytime he is upset. Drives me batty. As does the fact that they can't find their own laundry.

karisma said...

Sounds like my 11 year old boy! He never looks in the drawers at all!

Tink said...

You took them off and put them in there when she wasn't looking, didn't you? I knew it! ;)

Burgh Baby said...

You can also refer to that as the Husband Conspiracy Theory because I hear it all. the. time. Yes, Mr. Husband, I did steal your flashlight. Of course I did.

Eternal Sunshine said...

It's all your fault, MOM. GAWSH!!

;) I remember these days. I'm truly ashamed of the way I treated to my parents.

Kids. Whatcha gonna do?

Stephanie said...

Oh my - how dare you mom! Haha! Oh goodness, the things to look forward to in my future...

Kaytabug said...

I hear this in my house too! Sometimes coming out of my own mouth!
hangs head in shame

Ok - so I'm reliving my teenage years while I'm at Granilla's house, and let me just tell you ... the other night I totally was "shushing" Granilla in the hall because she was making a bunch of noise right by where the baby was sleeping. And after I "shushed" her, I proceeded to drop a giant plastic toy pirate ship from the second floor catwalk down the stairs where it thudded multiple times before crashing into the wall. It made a helluva lot of noise. (No, Sumo didn't wake up.)

maggie's mind said...

Hehehe, perfect haiku story of teen dramatics. :)

Momo Fali said...

I'm pretty sure this was why my Mom insisted I start doing my own laundry as soon as I turned 13.

Burfica said...

oh my god my 12 year old son does that all the time. Starts hollaring at me that he can't find certain things (clothing) that I ask him whatever happened to it. So we walk into his room and look behind the first three things in the front of the closet and lo and behold there it is.

I'm gonna start grounding him for not looking at everything in his closet or dresser before coming to me. hehehehehe

Daisy said...

So SO funny and SO TRUE!!!

Laughing...this is great - the dialogue is just like I remember it from my world, too! Good job!

She's not a teen is she? I mean MOTHER. Come. On. Get. It. Together. She's. Always. Right. Even. When. She's. Wrong.

Jaina said...

Haha, gee, that sounds familiar...

Rachel said...

Gah Mo-OM
I mean really. Sheesh. What the heck?

*stomps off*

Momisodes said...

LOL!

Okay. I shouldn't laugh. Because I am often the one that stomps and slams the door.

I'm just hoping it's not hereditary.

Pamela said...

where are my shorts?
The ones I never wear?
in my summer box


(girl, it's winter in some places. quit bragging about wearing shorts. snort.)

Indigo said...

Having Paul around at times seems like I have a tempermental teenager. He miss placed the phone (it's cordless). Asked me if I took it. Gee Paul think about that one, I'm deaf...would I seriously be using the phone. Then it went to someone must of come in the house and stole the phone. Oh for gosh sakes, I got up and found the phone for him. (Hugs)Indigo

Janet said...

bwahahahahahahaha!
I shouldn't laugh. My suspicions are growing that my supposed 5-year-old is actually just a short teenager.
