This kind of look made me stumble, fall, my spaghetti on the floor and on the guy's shoe, and had sent my fork flying.

In response to fellow hubber, Josh3418's limerick- "Embarrassing Moment" - , I thought of putting this up, my very first try on limerick. I don't know if I have done it in my elementary years, but I have no recollection that I've done here it is.


Lunch That Day

Out on lunch, spaghetti on plate

Pass a handsome guy, I can't wait

Plate spilled on his shoe

Picked the fork that flew

Shamed, I dashed before t'was too late.

Lunch and Handsome Men

"Hurry!" you tell your bestfriend co-worker. "I know," she replies zipping her purse and zapping it around her shoulder. "Let's go," both of you say it in unison.

Well, well, well, what's on your mind sweethearts? Why rushing for lunch? It's your break hour, take it easy and take your time (I'm addressing this to the ones who are not cutting off their throats or choking to catch a business meeting).

Phenomenal Women and Lunch Hour

Two best friends...strong, witty, courageous and sexy. Smart, aggressive, mysterious and flirty. They walk in wide but sexy pointy strides, tip tap tip tap goes the hind heels on the path marble floors. Please don't slip and listen to the shoe beat; remember, you've got some good lunch to date. Lunch is it? I suppose you are thinking of eating healthy, hmm, a phenomenal woman does think twice what to have for lunch that makes her gross? No. Find another word for that if you may.

Her fingers are painted of womanly enamel polish, dark, malicious, but kitty. She sticks her smooth candle-like finger to point out her choice behind the counter, and in a sexy move, she semi-take-a-peek half from her stylish eyeglasses and flutter her eyelashes. Better put enough glue on them, we don't want it ending up in someone's hot and sour soup! I thought for a second. (Just call me the Narrator.)

The other glides and gives her shoulders a slight turn, neck stretched to catch who is around, perhaps to take a glimpse that could spice up the food on her plate. Spice up? Spice what? Spice where? Spice who? Oh, I see, that is why you and your bestfriend were rushing out for lunch.

And so, you find a hot spice over there in the corner, I mean a handsome spice. Your girlfriend spots a man she's got her eyes fixed behind a err...bottle of spice? What's next, girlfriends? Oh that's obvious, now 'your targets' are looking at you simultaneously, hmm. What's going to happen now? You start picking on your healthy choice dish because you are now too conscious to shove a forkful of greens into your watering mouth. Phenomenal women you gotta eat, dear babes! That's one thing that makes you phenomenal, not just about being sophisticated, but you can take anything with grace, you're fantastic, extraordinary women!

Okay now, you've killed it. Killed your one hour break time, killed your greens drowning in dressing, killed your soup's steam, and transparently, you just killed your lunch! So here you both go striding back to your offices, rushing those sexy pointy walks, tip tap tip tap in rhythm with the swaying of your hips, left right left right...

"C'mon now, GF, hurry," you cried. "Did you see my guy? He smiled at me," she turned to you clasping her doggie bag of unfinished soup. "Yeah, he's cute," and "I hope I'll see my guy too next time around, or perhaps tomorrow again?" you quickly suggested. "Well girlfriend, we better pick up something that won't get us hungry, lol!" "Why not pastry and coffee over cigarettes for lunch next time? Sexy, hot and smokin'!" you added. "Sure, brilliant! And that would satisfy us for lunch?" your bestfriend doubted. "Satisfy indeed. If we find our men again, I assure you that they'll be back, that's double satisfaction. Guaranteed!" *wink* *wink*

      Oh yeah, for a while, it thought limerick is something that you just cooked (as i always see different food on your facebook wall). hahah.

      good job sis!

      p.s. there's a saying that goes like this (when a good-looking guy stares)...makes one drop her underwear and snap open her bra without touching them. haha. INTENSE!

      Amusing it reminded me of a scene in the musical Mame between the main characters played by Lucy Ball and Bea Arthur. Delightful.

      Limerick is too limited, lol, I can't express enough. I really fell flat on the floor, spaghetti landed on this cute guy's shoe. My fork flew a little far to reach and he said to me, "Can I help you?" but then picked up my fork, but not me. I thought he would help me up. I stood up as quickly as I fell to avoid more embarrassment. It was lunch hour and I was in my university uniform with a short skirt. Thank you teaches! Glad you stopped by. Love always, Tess

      Hi Faith, this is hilarious. Well, I'm laughing and making fun of myself! I don't know if you've caught the old one before I fixed it in a zap! I have to quickly do the changes, lol! You will find my old "MISTAKE" in Josh3418's comment box. See hub

      Oh my gosh, could have been much more unforgiving if that was a hot soup instead of a plate of spaghetti and meatballs, lol! That is why the gentleman (no, I'm mistaken), the guy only helped me with my fork instead of helping me up. He was probably controlling his fumes seeing spaghetti on top of his well-polished black shoe. And I was in my mini skirt university uniform too. I don't know if there was something else showing, hehehe!

      Thank you Cris! p.s. When I was writing this, I was thinking of us...what if we will try the phenomenal women story and get some spice on our food. (Just joking around) Neither one of us smoke; that's the good thing!

      I Debbie, to be simply honest, I had a bit a hard time putting a limitation of ONLY 5 lines together into a limerick poem. Geez, my head was rumbling with words, I think I can flow smoothly with a poem poem, lol! Haiku is the other thing that gets me stuck, though it is very short. My daughter could think of coming up with Haiku quickly than I could even bring up one, hahaha! And I just give up. Thank you Debbie, I got to learn a lot for a Poet and Writer like you and so with many other poets here too. Have a cheerful day! Love, Tess

      Yay for a limerick well done! So, no spaghetti for lunch and no soup, no soup for you - you know that famous line from "Seinfeld"? That's classic!

      I'd drop my pants for that handsome guy. Lol!

      Good job. Voted up and awesome!
