Go ahead. Look down your nose at me, for what it’s worth.

You’re taller than me

It has limited value

Can still ground your ass

  1. Someone just told me about your blog via facebook! Believe it or not, I am a haiku-venting mom of a teen boy as well! You simply must visit me at and contact me about collaborating. Yours in haiku, Peyton Price

    I once worked with a wee Scottish woman. Her son was well over six feet tall and she barely broke five feet. I laughed when she told me one day that when she was particularly upset, she’d climb on a kitchen chair and shake a wooden spoon in his face while she told him off. I think their mutual laughter at that point cleared the air.
