The Phone Call

image

She summoned the strength
To fix the ugly mess
She saw in the mirror,
But what really needed fixing
Was her wounded heart!

Her phone rang…

Him:
Baby where are you?
Please come home?
We can fix this, I promise!
It’s all a huge misunderstanding!!!
Can we just talk this out like always?

Her:
I’m at a hotel.
I couldn’t breathe, Jack.
Finding that note damn near killed me!
How could you do this to me?
How could you do this to us?

Him:
I’m sorry, Mary,
I was just being playful.
I really didn’t mean anything by it.
I joke around with everyone at the office.
You know how I am!

Her:
Yes, I know you’re playful,
It’s one of the things I love about you,
But there has to be something
That made her think
There was more to your playfulness.

Him:
Honestly Mary, I don’t know!
I’m the same way with her
As I am with everyone.
I honestly don’t know
What made her think there was more!

Her:
Jack, please don’t play me for a fool?
Don’t play the dumb card with me.
You should know by now
I see right through that kind of crap!
I’ve dated enough sleezy guys to know.
I thought you were different!

Him:
Mary, please, I’m not lying.
Nothing happened!

Her:
Just answer me one question,
Are you attracted to her?
A woman can tell
By simple actions
If a guy is into her.

Long pause…

Him:
Well she is attractive…

Her:
You took way too long
To answer my question, Jack.
I’m starting to think
You’re not as innocent
As you’d like me to believe.

Game on…

image

It’s Friday guys
The weekend is here,
Step away from the office
And let out a cheer!

Stock up on goodies
Whatever you choose,
Pull out the games
Refresh the rules.

Boggle? Scrabble?
Monopoly?
Chess? Checkers?
Or perhaps Yahtzee?

Spin the bottle,
Or games in dark closets
Strip poker
Or Chutes and ladders?

SPIN the wheel, Win a trip ,
Is that wheel of fortune?
Or The Price is Right?

Beer pong or ping-pong?
Sober or drunk?
Do you play by the rules
Or spoil all the fun?

Do your friends regret
They invited you over?
Or are you the life of the party —
The joker!

Whatever your choosing
Just remember, have fun.
Be a good sport,
It’s the weekend, game on!!!
