Key


If I'm crabby, try feeding me.
If I'm going upstairs, it's two at a time.
If I'm whistling, I probably don't even know it.
If I'm sleeping, look for the foot dangling over the edge.

If I'm dressed up, my day started badly.
If I'm wearing a dress, you're looking at an old picture.
If we're walking, I'll want you to my right.
If we're talking, I might forget your turn (sorry).

If I apologize, I'll be hoping for forgiveness.
If I get worked up, I'm maybe tired of waiting for justice.
If I say it's no problem, I'm trying to mean it.
If I go on and on, that's love for our little man D.

If I seem confident, thank my parents.
If I've got a spring in my step, talk to Terri.
If I'm singing, it's because I can't help it.
If I'm writing, I want you to read every word.

(Thanks to the good folks at Poetry Thursday for this week's prompt.)

Great! Wouldn't it be fun if we could sing and whistle at the same time?

Madd, if I'm making you smile, then heck, I think we ARE friends! :-)

Julie, would you believe it, I actually CAN a little bit whistle and sing at the same time. (I grew up in a VERRRY small town... had to create our own entertainment.)

But it kind of sounds like the emergency broadcast alert sound. Not pleasing to the ear.
