Laughter

A night of laughter with friends

Is there anything better

Tears of joy rolling down your cheeks

Getting wetter and wetter

You try to stifle the noise

But a dreaded snort comes out

That sets you all off again

And has you rolling about

The noises escape

And your tummy aches too

If this continues

I’ll need to run to the loo


I’ve just spent a fabulous night laughing with an old friend. We laughed so hard, I couldn’t take it anymore. My bladders not what it used to be, when I said that it just made us laugh more. 😆

When was the last time you enjoyed a real laugh?

Friendship Awaits

It was late and cold one starry night

I went to bed and turned on my light

I picked up teddy and snuggled in

Then reached for my book and let the story to begin


Welcome, he cried, the boy in blue

To the world of magic, here just for you.

He slowly reached out and took my hand

Then off we set into the magic land.


Dragons and pirates, gangsters and ghouls

Worst of all the dinner ladies from school!

We were the heroes in all the tales

The champions whom never failed


Despite the fun, I soon wanted home,

The boy in blue agreed it was time to go.

He brought me back to my room,

With the solemn promise – see you again soon.  


Originally written in response to Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge (#WQWWC) now hosted by Marsha Ingrao at Always Right. I had originally thought the theme this week was friendship but it’s open choice. I’ve decided to submit this anyway as I loved the quote.

#Maydays Prompt – Friendship Transformation

“You do not like them, so you say,
Try them, try them and you may!” – Dr Seuss

Dr Suess - try them and you may - friendship

Smiles with Seuss. For today’s #maydays prompt a bit of a classic. We have all read (or experienced) an enemy that becomes a friend (or vice versa for that matter). Capture that transformation for us.
