By my father when I was a kid.
He made it sound like it was an awful thing,
something to be embarrassed about
if you are caught doing it.
Well, I looked it up in the dictionary.
It’s not so awful.
is to look about or stare inquisitively with great curiosity.
That’s not so bad.
ubberneck also refers to tourists and sightseers.
Not a bad thing.
Then there is the definition;
ubberneckers are people who stare and gawk,
like spectators in a courtroom or at an accident.
That’s understandable but not nice.
And ubberneckers stare or gape,
especially in a naive or foolish manner.
I don’t like that at all.
But some days there is nothing else
to do so ubbernecking happens.
Or you see something that is interesting,
curious, odd and you can’t help but
stare, gape, gawk,
Lost in Translation’s Thursday’s Special
This was Teddy’s introduction to snow.
He had no idea what to make of it.
He liked it for about 10 minutes then he was done with it.
Not the best picture but it makes me smile to remember Teddy in the snow.
I’ve got somethin’ to say
bout Bad Poetry Day
Listen and hear
it’s August 18 every year
Give it a try
don’t be shy
See if you can be
a worse poet than me
Do your best
to do your baddest
Try as you might
I know I am right
Fer sure I know
I’ll win best in show
Which will be no surprise
since no one else wants to win this prize
Teddy is sooooo embarrassed that his mama wrote this
and actually posted it for the world to see.
