I Got a Raw Deal(Another Senior Moment)

I remembered once, I Think,
When a ring went down the sink,
And in a matter of a huff and a wink,
The drain pipe came off and I was a stink.

Finally I retrieve it,
But luck was against me I admit,
As I tried to lower the seat to sit,
I dropped the ring in the toilet where we shit.

A pair of gloves I put on,
When I heard the door bell go “Ding, Dong”,
It was a hairy beast called the mighty King Kong,
And he was wishing me a happy anniversary with a song.

My gloves did smell,
As I could see his nose tell,
That what was on my hands was not well,
So I ran inside to wash and guest what, I fell.

Soon after I got the ring out,
Washing it when I heard something loud,
My wife was at the door with bags and in a shout,
She asked, “What’s all that smell in your hands about.?”

My silver ring was now a colored gold,
My wife said,” It was not like that when sold!"
I answered,” Had it electroplated" and I was bold,
But she hit me on my head after I got a scold.

She sent me outside to have it cleaned,
Wanted me to wash it and me which was mean,
So I did it like I do my dog on the grass of green,
Using the water hose with neighbors watching I felt demeaned.

Came back inside to an anniversary meal,
She forced a kiss as my lips were mad and sealed,
But with a present for me a happy sensation I started to feel,
Until she said,” Can’t open it until the dog do, do comes off your heals."

    i loved this it made me smile……lovely writing, I’m not sure I’ve had a senior moment not yet, but the other day I went into town to do some banking, picked up a salad for lunch… returned to my car…..as I was driving down the road I looked down at my bag and thought ’where’s my salad’…suddenly it dawned on me its on the roof of my car, I put it there whilst finding my keys, at that point a lady waved vividly at me pointing at my car….lucky for me its was still there surprisingly having been round a few corners….

    Imagine writing this in a poem, priceless, it would paint pictures in our heads and with a little exaggeration of that salad on the roof, LOL. Well, thanks for sharing your yet to be senior moment, and I loved it too. I’m seeing a salad, shaking, trembling in fear, ha, ha, and then the head of the lettuce falling off, I better quite while I’m ahead. Thank you for your comment and for sharing your storr, it really makes me laugh.
