Slice of Life: Apology? 3/11

I am participating again this year in the Slice of Life challenge in which we write a slice every day in March.  If you are interested in joining in, visit the Two Writing Teachers blog for more information.

As I write this, my husband is in the kitchen making dinner.  I had a splitting headache today and am just able to write this because the Tylenol kicked in enough for me to sit up.  I love that my husband will step up and take care of me when I need it.  It made me think of the false apology poems we just worked on in my writing classes.  Here is my attempt at another poem tonight:

This is Just To Say

I have been
sitting here
not moving
a muscle

While you
clean the kitchen
and make dinner.

Forgive me
the couch
is wonderful
so comfortable
and warm.


  1. Aw, I know how you feel. Take care!

  2. I didn't even have a headache tonight, and I could have been the subject of this poem. I just plopped down when we all arrived at home. Great husbands are awesome! I hope you feel better soon.

  3. I'm right there with you. I came home with a pounding headache tonight at well. I don't know if it's from the weather change we're about to have here in Missouri or what.
    Hurray for Tylenol.
    Hope you feel better soon!
