FUN! What did you do that was fun today?
Fun undone's not fun.
Why skip the fun of today?
Look around. It's here!
Who is having fun?
Making fun? Making ho hum? Making glum?
Today's my day.
It's not over yet,
Maybe it's just begun.
What will I do with it?
Act, or be acted upon.
Will I get hurt today?
Probably I won't.
Some go around hurting themselves.
That's not me.
The world has billions of people.
Most don't even know I exist.
Some who do know me, actually like me.
Some who don't know me, wish they might.
Even "sight unseen" that's true.
They want a friend like me.
Even if they already have lots of friends.
I am unique. Those folks have their eyes out for me.
I don't talk too loud.
I don't hog folks' attention.
I have had experiences they've never had.
We could have a great friendship.
We could talk until the sun comes up.
We could just hang out.
We could walk and talk.
We could just smile until laughter breaks out.
We could cook for each other, simple stuff.
I could burn the toast.
You could nuclear the eggs.
I could write you love notes.
You could write me back.
We could look at the stars and spin dreams.
We could watch the sun set and describe where it is coming up.
I could imagine your next costume.
You could imagine me wearing funny glasses.
I could take your picture in your favorite pose.
You could draw my portrait and we could laugh.
We could share our favorite jokes.
I could whistle a tune for you to name.
You could try flirting with your eyes.
We could read each other's favorite story.
You could describe your favorite relative.
I could mimic a movie star.
We could pretend we are steering a boat in a storm.
You could tell me a made up secret.
I could tell you when I was most afraid.
We could make secret wishes and tell each other.
You could imagine our visit to a secluded beach.
I could describe how to ride a horse.
We could imagine life 25 years from now.
You could describe eating cotton candy at an amusement park.
I could tell you about when I was a lion tamer.
We could watch some children at play.
You could tell me of an awkward moment.
I could tell you of one of my lucky breaks.
We could decide to always live life this way.
Or we could play cribbage and eat watermelon.
