Some of the searches that found me:

  • the laughing ousewife – someone with a strong northern accent, obviously
  • Oday is a good day to diet – the eighth day of the week, thankfully
  • my husband is a criminal – !
  • I love being a housewife poem – as opposed to being a housewife essay…? 
  • poems about bottle caps – !!
  • brown housewife – this one is simply bizarre; I don’t get it
  • only as old as the woman I fee – sorry, sir; this is not that sort of website…
  • and my personal favourite: only as old as the woman I fell – I’m taking odds on whether it was written by a rugby player or a lumberjack

Carry On Tuesday For September 28th

The prompt from Carry On Tuesday was to use the first two lines from Regina Spektor’s song The Call: 

It started out as a feeling
which then grew into a hope




Heeding The Call 

It started out as a feeling
which then grew into a hope:
the guy at the end of the email
threw me a virtual rope.
I took my car to meet him;
we walked the slippery slope
of internet suicide websites.
Living was out of our scope.


This was inspired by the story of ‘Heaven’s Little Girl’, who met a stranger on the net and committed suicide with him.
