                HEADPHONES

We will now perform this marvellous new operation,
Replacing your tympani with little audio receivers,
So that wherever on earth you happen to be,
Your husband or mother can dial into your right ear
Without any hesitation or loss of time,
While as for your left ear, it's fully equipped
To listen to any of your favorite programs
Sent from absolutely anywhere in the world,
Or just to the weather channel.  Awesome!

Better yet, we will soon have the ability
To replace your corneas with teeny-tiny
T.V. sets, so never again will you miss
Anything that's on, anywhere.
                              Except, of course,
What's happening immediately around you,
And that's seldom of much interest anyway,
Is it?

Hey, I START with a "happy," -- I have no guarantees that it's going to *turn out* happy!

This certainly is an interesting concept...I don't know about the rest of you....but I don't want my mother to be able to call me anytime! lol

I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

Hey!!! You're cheating here!! You seem to be skipping quite a few numbers in between. You promised me 14,000; I want 14,000....*Stomps her foot and pouts*

I'm with Hoot!! Where are some of the ones you skipped over. Well???? No really, I liked this one although I don't watch much TV so can we just skip the cornea thing? And I don't want my mother hangin' out in my ear either. Maybe if ya got a mute button or somethng LOL

With technology being as it is today, it wouldn't surprise me...hehehehe...but can I have my corneas implanted with Passions in Poetry instead of T.V.?   Cute poem!

He didn't skip them - He just didn't post them... He was busy watching C.V. - CorneaVision.......

The truth must come out, I guess.  I only get the odd numbers -- one of my friends gets the even ones, that was the deal.  And it seems that SHE doesn't want to post hers.  

Also, I skipped three topics because they really just didn't inspire me.  But I thought of a way around that, and the poems with which I met (or maybe evaded) the challenge will be posted in a few minutes.

Hey, guys, have you noticed how cute Hoot Owl is when she pouts?
