Ode to a Very Bad Week: By Mom

Updated on October 28, 2011

With love to my son who did in fact have a very bad week!

I've had the worst week Mom, you haven't a clue

It all started Monday I sat in cow poo.

Which followed by Tuesday I woke up in a fit

The clock flashing 12:00 since the power had quit.

At 8:10 I threw on some clothes in a rush

Then looked at my hair and just gave up the fuss.

It only got worse as I ran down the street

And saw to my horror what I'd put on my feet.

A fuzzy blue slipper now made its debut

In place of what should be my other brown shoe.

Wednesday's ordeal in the lunchroom was tragic

A senior depantsed me (it really was classic).

As if my disgrace was not fully complete

YOU subbed on Thursday in math...what a treat.

By Friday you'd think I'd have curled up and died

But who could've guessed I had luck on my side!

A call from my buddy, a fishing invite

Could Friday night close out my hell week so bright?

I battled a whopper like nothing I'd fought

I wrestled for hours (well, that's what I thought!)

We pulled out the big net and what would you know

That fish broke the line leaving nothing to show.

And while this weeks ranks as the worst I have had

A lousy day's fishing still outweighs the bad!

      With the exception of the fuzzy blue slipper, this really did happen! If you're wondering how he sat in cow poo, my now 18-yr. old works on a dairy farm. He was at the tail end of his sophomore year when this tragically bad week occurred. Thanks for your comments and support
