Limesick

| | Comments (8)

Limesick, definition: A limerick composed by an ill person in an attempt to amuse herself. The result is that the limerick also suffers greatly, and therefore ends up being quite lame.

A girl named Red once had the flu
It made her cough and wheeze and achoo
This ailment so strained her
From colour it drained her
Even her eyes are no longer blue

A musical girl suffered a curse
She said: "I really ought to see a nurse."
She coughed a cadenza
Nurse said: "Influenza!"
"Don't call the ambulance, call the hearse!"

And lastly:

A gal once had a terrible cough
But the doctor did nothing but scoff
When she hacked up her lung
And then spit up her tongue
The doc used the lot to make broth

limesick? nah, it wasn't. It wasn't lame at all...err well maybe just a little... but entertaining to me anyways so it's not just amusing yourself.

If those computer nerds of the world could just invent some way of sending more than just data over the internet I'd concoct up some home made turkey soup. Hey, I might even don a radiation suit and give ya a warm hug... but sadly this innovation has yet to be invented.

I wish you well

btw. Is it just me or does the word concoct sound dirty? (insert girlish laughter here)

ViVi said:

Perhaps the last one is not recommended while actually eating soup. ;) Other than that, very clever, and I hope you're feeling better very soon! :)

Get better soon.

While our Red suffered in Bed
I have been stricken with Dread
It appears to me
That this rotten lur-gy
Has rendered her stuffed in the head.

*cheesy grin*

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
