She's a Bit Weird? -- A Limerick


She picks up quarters with her toes
.
Has followings where ere she goes
.
Her friends are getting skeered*
.
They say she's a bit weird
.
Think not, my tongue touches my nose

Today I'm linked with Mama Z. at the Real Toads, Words Count (Link)

She  said, "The older I get, the easier it is for me to admit that I'm a little weird. Yes, I can pick up a quarter using only my toes. Yes, I'm a water sign that hates the water. And, yes, I do watch Fox News just to ...  See?  A little weird."
(and)
"What about you?  Are you a little weird, too?  Do tell . . . in 46 words or less."


My little Limerick has 31 words plus four in the title (post header). Guess I made under 46.

*  Skeered, '"It's the writer's way of imitating the strange accent of one of his characters. "Skeered" = "scared".' (Google Search)

Fun, engaging happiness at weird, though things could be weirder.

I love your sense of humor .. my youngest son enjoys using 'skeered' when the occasion calls for it!

Jim, this was yummy. It made me laugh... particularly when I read it aloud with my tongue sticking out.

LOVE the photo! ;-)

You're right, Jim, I do have cataracts. Night driving is something I avoid - especially after last time, hee hee!
