On Giving Germs and Other Things


I'm sneezy, stuffy, slimy sick.
I had to write this post real quick.

Before the boogies hit my keys,
I'm typing out two poetries.
So I won't give my germs to you,
I'll grab a tissue and Achoo!


This tiny poem was inspired by
The National Day of Service:

Some give money.
Some give time.
Some give thanks.
But all give.

By Lauri C. Meyers, 2013


This cold has had me for a week.   Though it's customary to say I "have a cold," it’s pretty clear who has the upper hand.   Thanks for stopping by, but you better go take a bath in anti-bacterial goo now.

  1. Give me no germs,
    We've had them a plenty.
    Colds, flu and fevers.
    I think we've had twenty!

    (Divided by four, so just 5 each) :-)

    Feel better soon!

    1. I am one of those rare people who doesn't mind being called a buffoon, especially when it's a GREAT one!

  3. I do so love poems with the word "boogies" in them. Well done, Lauri. Get well soon!

    1. Yes and I discovered "boogies" can be classified with "orange" under "words that don't have rhymes." I suppose you could go with "To shake off my boogie, I danced boogie-woogie," but that seems like cheating.

    2. Noogies, yes indeed. I confess to thinking for way too long about which context boogies and noogies would come up together. The best I could do is this limerick:

      Everyone hated Bobby Kincaid
      The biggest bully in the first grade.
      He picked out his boogies,
      Then gave us all noogies,
      And called it a scrub with lemonade.

    1. You know there's a Blue Mountain Greeting Card contest every year in December? I think you could have your poetry proudly displayed on a greeting card one day :)

  5. Get better soon! We've been tossing around germs in our household, too.

    1. I don't mind tossing them around - it's the keeping them for 10 days I don't care for!

  6. Get better soon! I hate to be down with a cold. Maybe it'll be a good time for story inspiration (I'm annoyingly optimistic, I know). :)

    1. I think you need a really high fever to get great inspiration! I was inspired the first few days but then 14 days later I was like What Gives?! But optimism is always welcome :)
