Happy Holidays.To all my Christian friends – Happy Easter. And to all my Jewish friends – Happy Passover. I went to my synagogue for a family Seder last night and it was very nice. 175 people were there. We have a pretty cool Rabbi who is a rock star wannabe and he puts on a good show with lots of guitar playing and singing. And, of course, it is very children friendly. Members of the congregation do the cooking and they did a wonderful job within the confines of the ingredients they are required to use. This morning while I was confined I squeezed out this little limerick. Let’s just say I was inspired……
Passover’s “Bread of Affliction” week
And despite great cooking technique,
Much to our consternation
The affliction’s constipation –
A bind that ties us Jews, so to speak!
Life in the 21st century is a whole lot different from back when I went to college in the 70’s. Back then you had to go to the pharmacy counter and ask the pharmacist for condoms (unless you were buying them in gas station bathrooms – not) which could be a little unnerving. Now they are with the candy and magazines at the checkout counter. Who ever thought sex would become an impulse item? That is sex with someone other than yourself. The Great Society of the 60’s has morphed into The Anything Goes Society of the new millennium and that led to this
I am a foodie. I follow Laura Calder. Laura is an accomplished chef, author and television personality. And she is absolutely gorgeous. easy to follow. Laura has a blog and in her blog she has revealed yet another talent – doodling. Her doodling in and of itself is worthy of following.
Laura posted a doodle entitled Let Me Tell You What I Really Think
When I saw it, this little limerick popped into my head. I hope Laura likes it.
Dirty dishes piled up in the sink.
Could I get you another drink?!?!
I’ll try to be nice.
Pal, you’re on thin ice
LET ME TELL YOU WHAT I REALLY THINK!
Ok ladies, you can come clean and admit that watching your man lard ass-ing around camped out on the sofa in front of the television every weekend from the beginning of September until the first week in February is personally offensive to you; as is the beer breath and other breakdowns in personal hygiene that accompany this football related gender specific OCD behavior.

While dealing with a minor “health” problem that needed some home medical treatment that required my wearing latex gloves, I made the assertion while making the insertion that growing old is not for the faint of heart and it led to this limerick-al observation.

A sign of an aging apocalypse!
I have been contemplating life going forward unmarried. Life is much different with a wife, especially one who pays attention, is detail oriented and holds you accountable.
I was doing some grooming recently and I could clearly “hear” my Arleen “reminding” me to get out the weed wacker and machete and clear a path in my ears and nose. She was fascinated at how hair stopped growing on most of my head yet won’t stop growing out of the cavities in my head. And she was always quick to comment on it.
Of course, I put on my safety glasses, got out the power tools and went to wacking…thinking of her.
And it led to this….
When you find yourself in Love’s throes,
You think that it’s everything goes.
Life is a blur.
Anything for her…
You’ll trim the hair in your ears and your nose!
I rescued a cat on October 17th, 2000. He was family to me. I lost him tragically this year and I am still heartbroken. We spent countless hours together watching sports on TV and on the porch watching the world go by with him sitting in my lap. JJ this strip is dedicated to you. Thanks Jae for your great drawing.

I will no longer be posting comic strips from An Answer For Everything on my Life is A Limerick blog. We are gaining momentum with the strip and to keep that rolling we are going to be directing people to our Facebook Page
Also, I will be using Twitter to direct people to the new comic strips and the links to them on Facebook will be in the Tweets box on Life Is A Limerick Home Page.
If you have a Facebook page, I encourage you to LIKE the An Answer For Everything page and share the comic strip posts with your friends.
I will still be posting limericks here at the Life Is a Limerick blog. I will still be writing them regularly and not all of them become the dialog for a comic strip.
Thanks for all your support
