7 Quick Takes- Haiku edition


I'm waxing poetic today. Why use a bunch of words when a few will do? Here's our week in a nutshell:



--- 1 ---
Unemployment

Silence is golden,
unless you've been waiting
for your phone to ring.

--- 2 ---
Feast of St. Patrick

Forget the parade.
Let's go run thirteen-point-one
and then drink Guinness.

--- 3 ---

Pope Francis

Habemus Papam!
"I think he seems pretty sweet,"
SuperSam declares.


--- 4 ---
Sewing Crisis

Grinding sounds should not
be heard when stitching hemlines.
Rest in peace, Singer.


--- 5 ---

Cause for concern?

Sewing shop lady,
older sister to twin girls,
calls them "little shits."

--- 6 ---

Sewing Crisis, Averted

Shiny new stitcher
Your gentle whirring's welcome.
Easter dresses saved.

--- 7 ---

85th Birthday Party

Mom's going early,
warning Cracker Barrel staff
that Gramp is grouchy.
