39th Challenge Result (when called to post bail.)

May 11, 2009

Hello! It is a strange coincidence that the first line this past week was all about mothers, hmm?

Ben discussed mom’s culinary prowess here:

Mother’s self-esteem…
shaky at best. So eat that
“casserole” and smile.

and here:

Mother’s self-esteem?
Based on our natural love.
(Bolstered with baked goods.)

Sam2U was reflective:

Mother’s self-esteem
is linked to her reflection
in the chrome toaster.

And CuJen summoned the fashion police:

Mother’s self-esteem?
Unjustifiably high!
Who wears THAT outside???

And now I’ll hand it over to jenny t:

Here’s my haiku pick:

Mother’s self-esteem
grew when giving birth, but dropped
when called to post bail.

They all were great, but this one from Sam2U had the LOL factor. Also it reminded me of that song from the 80’s – “Hello Dad? I’m in Jail! Happy Birthday Dad!” And of course, the song is on youtube.

Thanks, jenny! And congratulations to Sam2U! Our new first line is when called to post bail. Spread the word and start writing, and I’ll be back with Sam2U’s pick on Monday!

Yours,
Joanna
