Don't You Just Hate it When...


Nothing matches…
not my socks or my tenses.
And it can get very tense
when I realize all I’m wearing is
mismatched socks,
and I’m standing
at my locker
in school
and I forgot which class I’m supposed to go to,
but there’s a test..
and I didn’t study -
I didn’t know there was a test
didn’t know what the test is about
didn’t know I was still in school
didn’t know I was being tested
with nothing but a pair of mismatched socks. 


I hate it when that happens.  This is for Day 15 of NaPoWriMo.  This is also posted at IGwRT where for their Open Link.  We're halfway there!

  1. Oh dear...are you telling me taht my socks should match? Now there's a problem. My experience is if you put three identical pair of socks in the wash, you get back five socks and no two are the same colour.

    1. Ha - that's my experience too. My theory is that there is a portal inside the dryer to a parallel universe, where all these lone socks are collecting! :o)

  5. ...or my tenses.

    The whole poem made me smirk (been there done that) and I am always screwing up my tenses... Fun mid-way-through April poem.

    1. Yes, I wish I had more dreams of flying and less of this kind!

  7. Ha! I've had that dream, and it is very disturbing. There's a lightness to this, though, that just makes it impossible not to smile and say,'O well, deal with it, world.'

    1. I tend to be a worrier, and then laugh at myself for it...

  8. If all you're wearing is mismatched socks, people would probably not focus on them.
