To Those Who Call Me Boring!

Today we have a guest post from the fantabulous Rhyming With Wine.I wanted to do a poem as a two fingers up to people who have called me boring recently and as I am absolutely crap at them I tasked her to “make sh*t look pretty* and boy did she deliver! I absolutely love it and hope you will too!!

I’d say that when it comes to friends
I truly have the best,
an awesome bunch of people who stand out from all the rest.

But now and then I get the sense from little things they say,
that they find me rather boring now?
(How very rude are they!?)

It’s really not my fault that I’m a lightweight on the booze.
I’d rather pop my jim jams on and have a little snooze.

But I don’t think that’s boring, and to me my nightlife rocks!
You can’t beat spending Friday nights at home in fluffy socks?

I’ll sometimes pop a film on, just to pass the evening by,
Like Ghostbusters or Goonies or a trip with M McFly!

I never watch a horror as I just don’t think I could,
I’m not so great with monsters and I’m even worse with blood.

I’ll sometimes have a pizza as a special Friday treat.
Just Margarita naturally, no vegetables or meat.

And ok so I’m mostly tucked up warm in bed by nine,
but not because I’m boring I’m just FREEZING ALL THE TIME.

It’s hardly like I don’t know how to cut it out in town,
When I hear “Like a virgin” you just cannot hold me down!

So how they find me boring I just really do not see?
When even Shakin Stevens has a song he wrote for me!?

It cannot be the puzzles that I love to do each day?
Surely doing Wasgij is just cool in every way?

I’ve given it a lot of thought and come to a conclusion,
There’s really just one thing that must have led to this confusion…

It must be that I’ve never been a lover of soft play?
I’m just not one for hanging out in ball pools every day?

Perhaps I’d earn some street cred if I joined them in the foam?
Among half eaten Wotsits…
… Nope.
….Forget it.
….Take me home!!

I’m sorry if my sintilating life is not enough,
But frankly if you think I’m dull I couldn’t give a stuff.

I’d rather be at home, in bed, and watching Uncle Buck?
You might think I’m boring, but I know I’m cool as….. a cucumber! :0)

  3. Ha ha that’s brilliant. Love the fact she didn’t Rhyme Uncle Buck.

    Obviously this was written before certain incidents, perhaps I should mention them to her and she what she rhymes out of those.. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
