THERE’S A PARTY TODAY AT SHELIA’S PLACE.
I’M SUPPOSED TO SHOW YOU MY SMILING FACE!
BUT THIS MORNING WHEN I GOT OUT OF THE BED
THERE WAS A HUGE MESS ON THE TOP OF MY HEAD!
IF YOU ARE SQUEEMISH, LEAVE THIS BLOG QUICK!
THE HORRORS YOU SEE COULD SURE MAKE YOU SICK!
I GAVE YOU FAIR WARNING, YOU HAVE TO ADMIT,
SO, DON’T BLAME ME IF YOU STAY AND GET SICK!
I ran to the phone - filled with fright!
I nervously dialed my hairdresser’s line.
She assured me that everything soon would be fine.
She colored; she curled, she did all she could do.
I anxiously waited til I got home to view
the transforming power of the new hairdo.
I screamed when I looked, and you will too!
So, I’ll warn ya again, RUN FOR THE HILLS,
Cause what you see may give you the chills!
YIKES! said I, and I bet you did too
I even pondered whether or not I could sue!
While worrying about this bright yellow flip,
I became very angry that I had left her a tip!
The only solution that I was able to find
Was to try on hats that weren’t even mine!
My Mother’s, My Dads, My grandmother’s too,
A Mexican sombrero and a floral in blue.
What I saw in the mirror didn’t look very good,
The hats didn’t do what I thought they would.
Not one of the hats seemed right for me,
Until I tried on the one you’re about to see
It’s so very sad, but so very true, you see
not a beauty but a jester – that’s me!
Now go to Note Songs, where you’re sure to see
Bathroom beauties instead of jesters like me!
Thanks for the fun party Shelia. If you stayed on my blog in spite of my warnings, I hope you’re okay. (I would never post photos of myself on my blog if Shelia wasn’t such a sweetie! The things I’ll do for that sweet lady! Of course, I also can’t stand to miss a fun party!)
Don’t forget Favorite Things Saturday. The linkup will be here tomorrow evening (probably sooner, since I’ll be anxious to move THIS post down from the top quickly)!
Thank you so much for visiting me, and I promise, it will be a cold day somewhere before you have to see pictures of me on my blog again! laurie
