A Limerick Is Born!

It was late and I had called it a night shortly after midnight.  The lights were out, my DH was in the reading room and Rosie had settled down on my pillow.  As I lay there awaiting the sandman, a series of words kept going through my head.  They strung together with other words and started rhyming.  As they came together, I knew I had to get a pen and paper and write it down.  After Hubs read it, I remarked that it sounded something like a limerick.  He said "I think it is".

Now I've read limericks for years, but didn't know what made them "limericks", so I looked it up, and apparently I'd written one.

There once was a girl from Magoo
Who got stuck on a big spot of glue
She squirmed and she wiggled
'Til everyone giggled
And bid her get rid of the shoe



  1. Ha ha! That made me giggle :)

  2. LOL! I loved it, Linda! Talk about a sticky situation! :)

  3. That's a good one! My grandfather used to write limericks, though grandma always yelled at him when he started telling them to my brother and me.

  4. Babs-Beetle- I'm glad!

    Talon- Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    Jen- Thank you! Why, were they bawdy?

  5. Hi Linda .. that double entendre that is the British way with words ... and aren't Limericks great ..

    Love your Magoo one .. fun - cheers Hilary

  6. Hilary- Thank you. I am happy to see you looked back to my limerick. They are indeed fun.
