There once was a writer who forgot how to laugh--
Too many hours by the computer and none in the bath.
While she edited on her own her heart felt pierced,
for she missed times with friends because she stank something fierce.
Of course, this poem isn't about me--I smell just fine,
It's just I got to thinking, how I write all the time,
And days by my laptop mean there are five things I miss,
Just like the other lonely-girl-writer with the terrible pits.
Friday Five: Things Writers (or Hermits) Miss
When you think of old friends, does your throat form a lump?
It's probably 'cause you've gone too long without a chest bump.
Or maybe like "Putty" from Seinfeld you crave,
A high-five from something other than your cat, Dave.
Stuck in a scene can make you feel down on writing luck,
It's time to call a friend and see a movie that may or may not suck,
If that's not your thing, then a night out to dinner is what you need,
There's no place like the Olive Garden because there you're like family.
If you're lonely, maybe stinky, and feeling at your wit's end,
What you're probably missing most is a game of Words With Friends!
My question to you is what do you miss?
If you had three extra hours a day what would be on your list?
