The Braggarts of August

Hi there!  Just got back from a wonderful family vacation up at Cape Cod.  It was a lot of fun.  Vacations always seem to go so fast, don't you think?  And yet, it always feels so nice to come back home.

I took a ton of cool and awesome photos (not to brag or anything...) so I will probably be using several of them as my own personal prompts in the near future.  But in the meantime, here's a bit of writing to another (and seriously terrific) blogger's prompt...

Mad Kane is a hilarious writer, whose short form poetry (mostly limericks and haiku) tackle news, social issues, politics and - of course - humor.  Every week, she runs a Limerick-Off on her site Mad Kane's Humor Blog, where she supplies the opening to the poem, and adventurous poets are invited to finish the verse, posting their responses in the comment section.

This week, the opening is ''A fellow who tended to brag...' (or 'A woman who tended to brag...')

Here are my entries.

Pride Goeth Before a Fall-Fashion Handbag…

A woman who tended to brag
all about her ‘Kate Spade’ shoulder bag
discovered…a fraud!
Yes, she saw it was flawed:
the name was misspelled on the tag.

Air Bag

A fellow who tended to brag
how he never endured real jet lag
found his boast did unravel -
by plane, he’d not travel.
The closest he came?  An air bag.


Thanks for stopping by.  Have a humorous day.  ☼


  1. Glad your vacation was a good one. Welcome back!

  2. Thanks so much for your kind words about my humor and for your fun limericks! One of them got you an Honorable Mention. Congrats!
