Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

stop digging

16 April 2014

 

 

She’s adorable.

 

Oh, me? thank you.

 

No, wait,

that’s not what I mean,

I mean the dog.

 

Oh, so I am not adorable?

 

No wait,

that’s not what I mean,

you are beautiful!

She is adorable, and cute.

 

Oh, so I am not cute?

 

No wait,

that’s not what I mean,

she’s adorable,

and cute,

you know, like a puppy,

but you are beautiful,

like a woman,

not adorable and cute and cuddly like …

 

Oh, I see, the dog is adorable,

and cute,

and cuddly,

and I am not?

 

No, wait,

that isn’t what I mean.

 

 

“When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.” (Will Rogers)
