My Diet Secret – Sh Don’t Tell (limerick)

Are you laughing at my socks?

My diet was going real well

That man in the mirror looked swell

That man couldn’t fail

My will would prevail

The lies bathroom scale tried to tell

I am not laughing at those great socks~they bring back memories of days of old. Loved the poem which is very fitting at the holidays. UUGGHH! I don't use a scale anymore. Too depressing :-0

Voted up and hit all buttons.

Ha! It sounds like you are referring to my bathroom scale. It is such a liar! I enjoyed this poem a lot and that's no lie. By the way, I really like the socks.

The socks are really nice actually :)

Scales are indeed evil , they most of the times weigh us more than they should ;)

Good luck with you diet and thanks for the laugh ..

I hate scales, they always tell the truth, they can sure try lying once in a while. Great limerick.

Those scales should be subjected to a lie detector test, I bet they stop lying after that. I want those socks! :)
