The inspiration came in a roundabout way from David McMahon's blog because I really enjoy his "Verse and Worse" posts, where he encourages his followers to respond in rhyme. It's great fun. If you've never visited his blog, take a look, you won't be disappointed in his wonderful photos, and his lighthearted look at life. He had taken a break from blogging for a year. Some of you may have followed him in the past, so in case you didn't realise, he's now back.
I may also use David's idea of posting verses and getting you to respond in rhyme on future Saturdays, but for my first Silly Saturday post, I'd like you to tell me about one of the silliest things you've ever done.
I'll start you off by telling you one of my silliest moments. (I have had so many silly moments, I could fill a book).
I was on a course some years ago, and before the day started I found a vending machine and decided to grab a coffee. I put the coins in, pressed the selection buttons...coffee...with milk...no sugar....then start. The dried coffee came out...then the powdered milk...then the hot water. But there was no cup to catch it. So I stood there trying to catch it in my cupped hands.....just as I noticed that the plastic cups were standing next to the machine. I was supposed to place one under the funnel first. Imagine my embarrassment as I struggled to transfer the coffee in my hands into a plastic cup, kindly passed to me by one of several people who had been standing behind me watching the whole time.
So...let's all have a bit of a giggle on Saturdays..tell me about your silly moments!
