A young friend was distraught
because her boyfriend had suggested
she should run some extra laps.
I told her she should suggest
for him to swim a few –
while dispensing his advice.
Yes, I’m thinking of applying to have my own Advice Column – Endearing to Nobody.
However, this is a quick 33-word quip in response to this weekend’s Trifextra challenge:
We want you to give us thirty-three words of advice. Your advice can be to anyone or about anything. We only ask that you make it uniquely yours. If you have time to kill, you can easily get lost in the advice of others here.
By the way, I spaced my words to look like they were being delivered in poetic verse (or maybe a column of advice! ha!) because of my NaPoWriMo 2013 commitment for the month of April.
It’s not a poem.
I was cheating.
didn’t feel the least bit
good for my soul
