What (limerick)

Updated on July 5, 2013

I wouldn’t say answers were drawn

Or that my wife goes on and on

But when wife’s done basking

In ears which she’s tasking

My reason for asking is gone

      I do have to say in my defense, that we all don't talk more than the male half. I have often asked him if he had any idea which of three things he wanted for dinner and when he gets done talking, I ask him again. I either forgot what he answered or he never really answered me.

      Sounds like Mr. B. I can't get a word in edgewise, and when he's finished I'm not in the mood to talk. Maybe that's why I write! Funny one.

      Wearing ear plugs is the best solution.

      They cut out noise and other pollution.
