HEARD ON THE THIRD

I’ve developed an odd proclivity

I’ve developed an odd proclivity

I’VE DEVELOPED AN ODD PROCLIVITY

I say everything repetitively

I say everything repetitively

I SAY EVERYTHING REPETITIVELY

For me to say something one time, or two

For me to say something one time, or two

FOR ME TO SAY SOMETHING ONE TIME, OR TWO

It falls on deaf ears—this is nothing new

It falls on deaf ears—this is nothing new

IT FALLS ON DEAF EARS—THIS IS NOTHING NEW

Rather than wait for an elusive response 

Rather than wait for an elusive response 

RATHER THAN WAIT FOR AN ELUSIVE RESPONSE

I say it three times if I say it once

I say it three times if I say it once

I SAY IT THREE TIMES IF I SAY IT ONCE

The third time said with an audible force

The third time said with an audible force

THE THIRD TIME IS SAID WITH AN AUDIBLE FORCE

A shout when compared to normal discourse

A shout when compared to normal discourse

A SHOUT WHEN COMPARED TO NORMAL DISCOURSE

The odd thing is that the children I grew 

The odd thing is that the children I grew 

THE ODD THING IS THAT THE CHILDREN I GREW

Have no idea I do this—but I do

Have no idea I do this—but I do

HAVE NO IDEA I DO THIS—BUT I DO

Heard on the third, I’ve accepted the fact

Heard on the third, I’ve accepted the fact

HEARD ON THE THIRD, I’VE ACCEPTED THAT FACT

You may have guessed it—I’ve finally cracked

You may have guessed it—I’ve finally cracked

YOU MAY HAVE GUESSED IT—I’VE FINALLY CRACKED

  1. This one is clever, priceless and certainly based in reality. You should have a column in a newspaper. You could write it in your “spare time. ” HA!!! Actually, what you post in your blog is suitable for publication. It deserves a wide audience.

      1. I’m just amazed by what I know of your life from your writing that you find and take the time to write. It must be a preservation of sanity thing, right? But, can’t you find time to send a few into a parenting magazine?

      2. Writing is what I do for myself. I do it at work, at red lights, in bed, when I should be cleaning the house… I will make it my goal to submit my work wherever I can think to submit it when my girls leave in the fall. I should have some extra time then. Thanks Judy. 😉
