    Ms. Jacquii - fabulous write - I meant to comment weeks ago! But I did enjoy reading it again...such restraint...you should have taken the glass! haha!

    Mysty - ooohh...how sad...one foot in the grave?? but how true...do we have to acknowledge it? lol! This was an awesome CinqDeLa.....confronting true reality.

    Jer - a tough read on the emotions...I hope that wasn't personal experience, although the end was a release, I can see. Very nice and a short read as well.

    A conversation between a husband [H] and wife [W]

    H: I'LL BE BACK
    W: where to
    H: the store
    W: what for?
    H: buttermilk
    W: oh, that ilk
    H: it's for my silky mane
    W: you're so vain
    H: it stinks like vomit
    W: I'll have to use the Comet
    W: how about the soda fountain
    H: I'd rather climb a mountain
    W: remember what your grandma said
    H: not to use it on my head
    W: are you going by the amber rock
    H: no, beneath the ticking clock
    W: don't forget the cardinal rule
    H: I'll be careful, I'm not a fool
    W: you don't need to raise your voice
    H: I didn't think I had a choice
    W: when you get back we'll watch the races
    H: I'll be real quick,not too many places
    W: I need a few other things
    H: don't needle me, don't pull no strings
    W: vinegar and apple cider
    H: don't mean to interrupt,but there's a spider
    W: now hurry up and go
    W: the vermouth is chilling and you're so slow
    W: one other thing, a kool-aid packet
    H: okay,okay,don't make such a racket
    H: you needn't be so loud
    W: of course not,but your head is in a cloud
    W: now get thee gone,and I'll cut you some slack
    H: like I said at the top,I'LL BE BACK

    I totally loved the rhythm of this piece Tham. This piece is what JPiC is about. Inspiring one to rivetness. If even a word exists I would think it is this piece. I think you strayed a bit from the rules though. "I'll be back" is not necessarily any cliche that I've heard of, unless you're talking about Friday 13th or Michael Myers characters of course...

    Anyway- THOROUGHLY enjoyed this one. Such a pleasure to read. You're a natural story-teller and this one truly reads as if picked from the realm of red riding hood.

    The Grass May Not Alway's Be Greener On The Other Side

    I remember when you
    left. And Grandma saying
    "all I could see was the cornrows "

    I suddenly felt like I would vomit
    and their was
    a very mysterious cloud
    over my head
    upon hearing of
    you heading for the other side

    "Sorry" I believe I can fly
    was that the only reason why
    You thought the grass would be
    greener on the other side

    I started drinking laudanum
    by and by and stop believing I can fly

    One day I heard a voice say
    "get up" you still can fly! although
    some may leave you for the other side

    well I"m sure you'll meet another guy
    who will not say he can fly with greener
    grass on his side so good bye

    I believe I can fly

    Eat a Live Frog in the Morning And Nothing Worse Will Happen

    Oh if you eat a living frog
    in the morning when you wake,
    You'll find your days' decisions
    are the best that you will make.

    "Nothing worse will happen"
    I quote here from Ol' Mark Twain,
    But he failed to add the second part
    the part about the pain.

    Your face will change to cardinal red
    your voice will not be heard,
    Grandma will bring you buttermilk
    'cause she couldn't hear a word.

    When lips turn green and bumpy
    like the frogs' green bumpy skin,
    And your tongue's a purple hyacinth
    metamorphoses will begin.

    Hark my words don't interupt
    cloud not what I am rappen,
    DON'T eat a frog in the morning
    and nothing worse will happen.

    I like this cliche. I had never heard this one before. The most I have had is some frog legs. But never a live frog in the morning. I'll stick to some herbal tea maybe. I enjoyed reading this.

    Thank you michael,
    Personally I've not tried frog legs, always wanted to.
    I wanted to find a quote that was unusually different than the rest, and this one was the one.
    It was indeed like Mark Twain. I love his books.
    Thanks again.

    Hey...yeah this is a wonderful cliche. So all I have to do is eat a live frog in the morning. Okay
    I used to hear about Mark Twain often in high school.
    Oh...and about the frog legs. I can't say that I have had many. I don't think that I would want to eat a frogs leg now
    people used to say dey taste like chicken lol
