The prompt I chose this week:
Write a post where the first and last sentence contain any form of the word “boss.”
The Mister is quite bossy
He thinks that he's in charge
He's always telling me what to do
The lists he makes are large
He's actually a pretty good husband
And together, we have loads of fun
But where did he get the notion
That he is number ONE?
I read the lists, I make some notes
Pondering my daily chores
I mutter "A vagina
isn't a prerequisite for cleaning kitchen floors"
The list today says 'pay the bills'
Tomorrow? 'Do the wash,
Mow the grass, clean the tub
For dinner? Paprikash!'
Usually, I just smile sweetly
Roll my eyes and say, "We'll see"
But the actual phrase running through my head
is You're not the BOSS of me!
