Happy National Odometer Day
I was trying to get a number that was awesome but it didn’t happen today. I’m looking forward to 14141!
Merry Limerick Day
When I was a kid my dad taught me this one:
There once was a couple from New Delhi
Who used to sleep belly to belly
But in their haste, they used paper paste
Instead of petroleum jelly.
Limericks are dirty usually, which is a problem when you’re trying to explain what limericks are to a class full of students and the only ones that you can remember are about dirty things. I’ve looked for clean limericks but most of them are stupid and/or lame. So every year, when limericks come up and I start describing them to a class full of eager young poets I am reminded of that silly couple in New Delhi.
