The Day I Answered Some Emergency Room Questions
“Irene,” I said.
“Iver,” I responded.
“Needle.” I stated.
“In my eye.” I explained.
“Sewing eyelets.” I answered.
“What?” I demanded.
“AY!-yi!-yi!” I answered.

Ha! and Ack! There is nothing quite like sitting in the ER and having to answer questions while you ache or ooze. Fun and curious piece!
Thanks Morgan. Glad you enjoyed it. It was a bit curious! HA! 😀
Eye knew you’d enjoy it, Bucky!
lol “eye” did
snicker . . . loved your take on it.
You realize there’s a reason why they say ” Don’t poke your eye out ” right?? 😛
Hahaha! I guess so Andy. I think I need to get a tattoo that says that! 😀
~Grabs a stick it note pad and sticks it on your arm~ ta da! 😛
Haha! Now that’s quick thinking my friend! Thank you for saving me from a sure to be regretted tattoo! 😀
Now it’s an interchangable tattoo lol 😛
You know what Andy? It think you’re sitting on a gold mine with this idea! HA! 😀
Eye don’t *see* what’s so funny.
Eye do 😉 Pleasantly unexpected…
Haha! Good Eye-ing Paper Wizard! 😀
Hilarious!Sewing eyelets!Oh my!Loved the “clarion call” at the end & your P.S was impeccable-no,I won’t try to contact Irene Iver;-)Am still ROFL Linda-who is going to pick me up now?Eye blame you for this catastrophe!
hahaha Atreyee! Eye M so sorry!
Eye eye eye that was delightful…and of course there shall be many more puns I’m sure 🙂 Though secretly freaked as I can’t even sit next to a table corner thinking I will be poked in the eye. 😦
Hahah! Icey what you mean about the poking of the eye fear. I never ran with sticks for just that reason when I was a kid and I still don’t for that matter! Thanks for coming by Ramblings!!
Ouch! This really hurts, I can feel it.
Haha! Ouch! Sorry about that Katie! LOL! 😀
Ooo! I cringed >__< Great piece!
Thanks Draug. You too and congrats on your win! 😀
Aye, that must’ve been painful. 😛
Now whenever I see some lovely eyelet I’m going to think of Irene and that needle in her eye!! LOL!! Linda, you’re amazing!!
Ahahaha! Irene and that needle in her eye! I’m going to try to work that sentence into every conversation I have today too! I sure hope I end up having a conversation with somebody today so I can work in all these funny phrases — I’m going to have to keep my eye open for the mailman! 😀
Yesterday I had an entire conversation with my 17-year-old with neither of us maintaning eye contact and no words more than two syllables. So, I know how difficult this was to write, lol. Excellent use of the prompt.
LOL Lance!! I seem to remember a few conversations with my kids when they were that age! I remember there for awhile, when my son was a teenager, the ONLY thing I could talk to him about was the Simpsons!! And I don’t think we ever used more than one or two words each. Ha! Memories!
I adore the bit in the picture, Linda.
So glad you liked it Kymm! 😀
Tight! Silly! Brilliant, as usual! If your writing was merely funny, it would still be good. However, there is always such depth of meaning to your humour. You are in a league of your own when it comes to this style of writing.
Oh my gosh Cobbie. Thank you so much! You’re comment makes me feel so exhilarated and motivated! 😀
Aye aye Captian, full speed ahead. I’ll watch for those icebergs, I promise! Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle…oh, ok, I need to stop now.
ahahaha Lumdog. 😀 So glad you like it.
Here’s someone taking the “it is easier to pass through the eye of a needle”: challenge a little to literally.
Haha Zeb! So true. I’ve been know to apply the literal liberally! 😀
Irene I avow eyelet free islets are ideally found somewhere warm.
Haha Jesterqueen. I just tried saying that three times fast and failed miserably! 😀
You’d think Irene would have been able to sew her own back on after all that…
I think she used velcro, but she had to sew that on . . . so you’re almost right!
Oh no! What a horrible thought! Ha! 🙂
It is a horrible thought, isn’t it! Yikes! 😀
Ow! I do get your point about the inlet, though.
Your point will stick with me even on the peninsula. (Okay, that was just lame, I’m completely punned out, I admit it.)
Only you could make an eye-patch look good! Fantastic talents…Skip.
Ah! thank you so much Food4thesoul! 😀
Linda…please call me Skip. And you are entirely welcome. Take care…
Will do Skip!! 😀
🙂 right back at ya!
