A Party At My Place, A Saturday Centus


For week #152 of  Saturday Centus our oh-so-creative teacher, Ms. Jenny, has challenged us Centusians to write a rhyme based upon this photo of a deviled egg.   Why a deviled egg?  Well because it's almost Easter and well, um...the devil thing is....well, it's not important.  

What's important is that we use no more than 100 words, no vulgarity and don't eat the photo!  Make sure to read all the other submissions by following the link to Jenny's blog, off on my tangent, and submit your own devilishly good post!  I have entitled my submission this week:

A Party At My Place

It was our housewarming party
And my friends were all there.
Over by Sue, Jenny and Karen
laughter naturally filled the air.

Deviled eggs (my favorite!) had been brought
To add to the fete,
Along with trays full of tasty foods
For everyone to eat.

Viki, Tracy and Claudia had come,
and Jayne was there too,
Telling jokes and acting wild
Enjoying my home brew.

Judy, Faith, Beth, Ross and Kris
hung out in the swimming pool,
Sipping margaritas and splashing around
Trying really hard to stay cool.

Surprise, Arizona is hot in September
Don’t let any tell you it’s a dry heat.
For that excuse doesn't wash in real life
When you’re walking barefoot on concrete.

Jenny Matlock

You know you live in Phoenix when you've experienced condensation on your butt cheeks from the hot water evaporating in the toilet bowl.

  13. Hmmm...quite a few interesting posts from anonymous here. I particularly like the one that links to something about a golden retriever.

    Golden retriever...golden...

    egg yolks...golden...

    Yeah. I can see how that works!

    But oddly I didn't see any anonymous links to sites featuring celery seeds...
