Curses, Foiled Again!

Sunday morning’s forecast
promised lightning, droning rain.
I drew back the curtain
with hard-clutched book, to no avail.
Double-crossing weather channel!
Sunshine! Blue skies!
Wherefore art thou washing machine?
Scrubbrush? Mop and pail?


wants a 33-word example of an apostrophe.

  5. Oh I loved this, mostly because I have wanted a stormy Saturday, a day to just lounge and sit, study my cuticles or nap in between my naps. I always feel so betrayed when the blue skies show up. ;)

  9. This one made me laugh out loud! How I hate the scrubbrush, mop and pail when I got an interesting book to read! Not to mention the weather playing spoilsport. Good one, Kymm.

  12. Good one, kymm. Very funny. Living in northern CA I almost never can use that excuse with 320+ days of sun and no rain. But, I'm not complaining. Though admittedly I don't clean very often. :)

    1. CA, Barcelona, pretty similar I think. Did I mention cleaning? So sorry.
      Haha. Thanks, Steph!

  13. That Carpe Diem that always force us to go up an DO something can be very stressful. I lived four months in Southern California once, and it drew me crazy... I craved rain.. and just before I left... it came.. I went out on the balcony and danced.

    1. Haha Every August on vacation I manage to catch a day that just pours, and I go out and dance in it.
      I grew up in New England, where we had to be outside if the sun was out, whether it was well below zero or above body temperature. Stays with a girl.

  22. I used to fly Cessnas and weather always double crossed me :P, since then I never believe the numbers on TV but I prefer to read between the winds. :) Great entry, Kymm.

    1. I used to sail, and retain a bit of the weather eye, but city living nullifies much of it.
      Thanks so much, TIZ!

  23. You never get what you want or what you expect and the weather peeps can't seem to give us anything reliable.
