You Know I'm Not Too Fat
Author: Bipedalguy


So I'm bigger around than I'm tall.
Do you think I care much, if at all?
What's inside is what counts.
I need not loose an ounce.
In my heart, I'm the bell of the ball.

------- Author's Notes -------

And can she cook!!

Thanks Terrie*

This one came to me unexpectedly just when I was about to check the site last night.

I'm very pleased that you liked it.

Did you detect the subtle trace of arrogance
in the line, "Do you think I care much, if at all?"
from the woman "bell of the ball"
who narrates the Limerick?

The line in "Author's Notes" "And can she cook!!" would be the words of her husband, who probably has a few extra pounds himself. I'm glad he likes her cooking.

Bip, i appreciate how you manage to put soooo much personality into your work, shows your sense of humor , looks good on you , yes i felt the over bearin' pride when i walked in...the husband on the other hand knows what NOT to say, other wise it's the Dog House ~smile~ glad he likes her cookin' too..
