Today it is Cindy’s birthday, from The Only Cin. Cindy blogs about food and wine in a way that even I, foodilistine that I am, find interesting.
Happy Birthday Cindy; here’s a poem for you:
She Will Just Read This
Cindy comes from Bloemies
where the houses are quite roomy;
the weather’s never gloomy;
but she didn’t tell that to me.
I read her About Me page
where I learned that she’s enraged
whenever folk are nasty
(I bet she’d give them rhinoplasty -
without the drugs. Imagine it!)
She likes to sew and knit
and blog and write a bit.
She slowed down but didn’t quit -
which makes us all feel joyous
for the things she has shared with us.
Her readers always have a grin
discovering Original Cin.

Using these words even once, will get you a failing grade for that quarter. The first one is “gross” and the other one is “cool”. Are there any questions?”
After a few moments of silence, a gawky teen at the back of the room raised his hand, and the teacher called upon him. In a pubescent croaking voice, the kid asked, “So, what are they?”
