Loud Snoring

It's a struggle

Laying in bed in the morning,

listening to hubby's loud snoring.

I jump out of bed,

and slap his big head,

with a slipper I found on the flooring.

    You guys are mean. Just shove him under the bed. Ha ha Cathy, bad Cathy.

  • Spectacular! If I were you, after I hit him with the slipper, I'd stuff his nose and mouth so he can't breath. If he wakes up on time, he lives. If he doesn't, well then it was his time to go. Lol! Loved your limerick!

    Confession... my hubby is actually the snoree, not the snorer in our household... hopefully he won't read this and get ideas!

    HAHAHA!!! I love that he had to have a 'big' head. And of course he got slapped with a slipper. Too funny!!! You are like a limerick queen already!!

    Oh, Cathy I need to go have a beverage with you. I really need to know what goes on in your head. Too funny and I know my wife amy agree with this.

    We had a female relative staying over last Christmas that made me feel as if I had forgotten a buzzsaw in the next room. I love this, and completely sympathize with the slipper!
