Beg Pardon, But

Pimp My Lent/Day45

The Prompt:

From Pam Dougherty…

“The glass is pretty much always half full.”



The Product:


Dear God

Please note that

I am not to blame here

It’s not my fault that I’m this way

I never asked for smoke-colored glasses



Dear Lord

Please note that

I am this way only

Because I was born this way

And whose fault it that




Dear God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

Please note that

There are no women on your list



Dear Divine Goodness

My dog collapsed and died right in front of me

And myself at such a tender age

(The Dog was quite old)



Dear Heavenly Father

Please note that

I never asked to be born



Dear Creator of All Things

Please note that

My husband forgot to wake me

The car wouldn’t start

I had a terrible headache

My watch broke

My phone died

The inspection sticker was expired

I missed the bus

I ate it because it was my birthday

I have a doctor’s note

I developed a fever

The phone rang

The bathroom was filthy

Nobody remembered to take the garbage to the alley

The cat threw up on the rug

I may be coming down with something

My back went out

There was a glitch in the system

Nobody told me that was spiked

I had an allergic reaction

The directions were confusing

I never had lessons as a child

I thought that it was Thursday




Dear Abba

Please note that I am here now

waiting                           quietly
