Things All Rational Human Beings Should Avoid - Poem by Juan Olivarez

Play Poem Video

The Big Bang Theory.
Cream and sugar in coffee.
Running into the women's bathroom
While the Men's is being cleaned
At a Catholic Grandmother's convention
Votka for breakfast. (without tomato juice and celery stalk.)
Tequila is better
Streaking at the beach (outside the convention center though)
When your knees are shot
And WWII vets can actually chase you down.
Beans for breakfast
If they can't see you, they will hear you (and smell you)
Family Dollar stores, without benefit of an enterpreter.
Might as well avoid the Tequila too
That and these damned sand dunes really slowed me down.

    Oh but Juan! Gotta have the cream and sugar in the coffee! It's an absolute must! Unless of course we just skip the coffee entirely and go straight for the tequila! That'll work...... (Report) Reply

    I have to admit to being guilty, committing some of your listed no-nos! ! ! All of which I shall not say. You have added a chuckle to my day. Ever clever! PEACE (Report) Reply
