Would you? Could you?
In a rush?
Pay it! Pay it!
Here and now!

I would not,
could not,
in a rush.

It's not so bad.
You will see.
You can pay it
with a fifty!

I would not, could not with a fifty.
Not in a rush. Now let me be!

A gift card! A gift card!
A gift card! A gift card!
Could you, would you,
with a gift card?

Not with a gift card! Not in a rush!
Not with a fifty! Let me be!

Say!
In the cold!
Here in the cold!
Would you, could you, in the cold?

I would not, could not
in the cold.
Not with a gift card. Not in a rush.
Not with a fifty! I said let me be!

I will not pay it in a drive-thru.
I will not pay it with some credit.
I will not pay it with my debit.
I will not pay it with other means.
I will not pay it in your dreams.
I will not pay it, Poor-I-am.

I will not pay that for a latte!

  1. I love it! Dr. Suess would be proud. I will not pay it either...unless I'm out of coffee at home...then I'm like a fiend, jibbering and pacing, until I find a Starbucks. (Which isn't hard.)

  2. Oh, and totally unrelated, and I apologize...We were thinking of taking the baby to the zoo (the Pittsburgh Zoo) next Thurs. on her birthday. It's her 1st birthday, will it be even slightly fun for her? Husband says no, she's too young. I say yes, she loves animals. As someone who has frequented the zoo often, what do you think? Or is there better place we can take her for a special day?

    Alexis does like the zoo (especially the aquarium) and has for quite a while. But, to be honest, I would go to the Children's Museum. There's a whole lot more to do there for someone who's one wants to touch, run, crawl, climb, grab, and generally leave no stone unturned. It's a little boring for some adults (OK, my husband thought it was boring), but I personally enjoyed our two hours in the water room. Alexis definately enjoyed every minute.

  4. Just found your blog and this one made me laugh out loud! (Darn you people who can do that - that'll teach me to read these things while the baby WAS sleeping.) Love it!

    Sweet! Not only can I wake my own baby by breathing wrong, I can wake yours, too. This is a proud moment in my life.
