Not Writing As Fireworks Are Igniting!

The cat knows you use the holiday and those sparkly things as an excuse. Maybe even off drinking some cactus juice. Or sitting in the sun. All summer you use that one. But there are more important excuses to be had for why you aren't writing at your pad.

Why don't you write?
Maybe too sunny and bright?
Maybe Youtube is on.
Cat videos are a con.

But that we know.
Sometimes you're on the go.
Time is surely a factor.
As is getting run over by a tractor.

Cat on the keyboard,
No writing is stored.
Jeeberish maybe.
Hey, don't blame me.

Don't pay the internet bill.
Bah, that one doesn't thrill.
You popped a pill.
Now you need your umm fill.

Spilled water from your cup.
Bah, that will be slurped up.
It can be done by kids or pups.
What stops writing is the hiccups.

Family in the way.
That happens any old day.
A peeping tom watching you.
Now that can make you stew.

Computer goes boom.
We've all had that doom.
But when your computer talks back,
That is when writing may lack.

Something on TV.
That can make writing flee.
But what is worse for thee,
Is when the TV runs free.

As in it falls and crushes you.
Then no writing will come due.
But then you'd have to get off the couch.
Maybe you find a pearl in a pouch.

Yipppeee, you're a millionaire.
No writing needed at your lair.
Fat chance on that.
Better odds of going splat.

Any other excuses I missed? Flattened by a TV would leave some pissed. If it were a small TV it may not be so bad for thee. Now you have many more than just a holiday and fireworks. Don't excuses have perks? I can just say I'll roll in the grass, have a bad case of gas or I'm off annoying Cass. All work for my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  4. I can't squeeze it in. Between work and home I'm exhausted and falling asleep by the time I pick up the computer. I recently had the (not so) bright idea to condense 10 things had to review into one. I had people saying, 'hurry up' and 'when will you be ready' and I forgot two numbers, lol. I'm def. not doing well w/time management. ;)

  5. I loved fireworks as a kid. I still love them. But they do scare the pets which is not good. I live in a military town and some service members with ptsd don't do well with the sound either. Anyway, the food is better for Cinco de Mayo. lol

    1. haha the food sure will be better for many

  9. Well, you are certainly someone who knows how to get writing accomplished no matter what, since I'm reading your 100th book! You're absolutely right; you have to make writing a priority and ignore the distractions. One of mine is "It's so hard to write when I'm traveling!" Although I've been known to type in a hotel bathroom or other odd perches. You always inspire me, Pat! Have a happy day where you're at. Me, I hope to see some fireworks in the distance. We're not going anywhere this 4th, and I'm happy just to be relaxing at home. Oh, there's another favorite excuse: "I have so much I have to do!" LOL Ridiculous excuse!
    Take care, my friend!

    1. lol so much to do
      As you relax at your zoo
      Well relaxing has to be done
      You sure do travel a ton
      Much harder to write then
      When away from your den
      100 sure has come due
      Got another 6 or so in progress too

  10. I think you covered all the excuses
    not only for those who don't want to write
    but for life in general with things we might not want to do
    and just laze away through the night

  16. Brother Bill's excuse, best one of all: my horse ate my homework. Then he handed his English book to the teacher. It had a big horse sized bite.

    1. Did the horse actually do it
      Or was he the one that faked it being bit?

  17. Ah, yes. Let me count the ways I can put off writing. I like to blame my family. Like today. I have to cook all kinds of stuff because it's a holiday and what else do you do on a holiday, but eat. . .lots!
