Thursday Thirteen

On the first day of Christmas, I went to the store.
I came home with a long two-by-four.

On the second day of Christmas, I stayed home in bed.
I pulled the covers over my head.

On the third day of Christmas, I thought that I should eat.
Chocolate is my favorite treat!

On the fourth day of Christmas, I camped out online
to buy all my presents on time.

On the fifth day of Christmas, I addressed the cards
That was not hard! Then I ate some chips, had a little dip, and then I nodded off at 8 p.m.!

On the sixth day of Christmas, I set out to buy
a present for my favorite guy.

On the seventh day of Christmas, I heard someone say
Hey, you, have a nice day!

On the eighth day of Christmas, I ran into a friend
who had just bought a new Mercedes Benz!

On the ninth day of Christmas, chocolate cherries called my name. And my diet was never the same!

On the tenth day of Christmas, I put up the tree
then I watched Rudolph on the TV.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, we turned on the colored lights.
We left them on all night.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my husband kissed me twice. I thought that it was really very nice!

On the thirteenth day of Christmas, I fell to my knees and prayed.
Because that is the reason for the day.



Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; you can learn more about it here. My other Thursday Thirteens are here.

  2. Since it is the Twelve Days of CHristmas, does that mean I can wait to decorate and shop til the 13th of Dec? Or 14th?

    Very cute.

    I still have to get Karen Carpenter's Christmas album on Itunes for the holiday. Will think of you when we listen to it and will hope for joyful memories for you and yours this year.

  6. June - not hardly! I thought this was the worst thing I've written in a long while, a writing born of desperation for a Thursday Thirteen!
