  1. I would like to do this …. I wrote one this morning. Do I just post it on my blog? Is there a special way to mark it? This is pretty cool! I enjoyed yours…. and the challenge of writing one.


  2. I honestly can’t pinpoint exactly what I like so much about this, but I read it like 3 times through and laughed every time so I guess it doesn’t matter 😉


  3. *hahaha* This is fantastic – fun and witty! It sounds like a children’s poem, but not in a saccharine, cloying way. Very well done.
