Magpie Tales #296 Grocery Shopping

Joachim Buecklaer   1560
 
There once was a lass named Daisy
Whose memory was rather lazy
"Tis best to have a list
Than get home with something missed"
Returning to the market would be crazy.

Thanks and a tip of my hat

Fun poem. i read recently that biologists are studying these old painting to see just how much fruits and vegetables have changed over the past few hundred years. Watermelons look drastically different than those depicted in old paintings.

A list is essential! She certainly does look competent to get it all done.

Nice limerick, to have a list to buy - the best idea ever instead of wondering about and feed the impulsive buying...

Ha.. yes but I can imagine she needs quite a lot the lazy lass.

Tess Kincaid said...

Oh yes...thanks for the smile...

Carol Campbell said...

A fine limerick!

I write shopping lists and leave them on the table! Reminds me of other saucier limericks ;)
I agree with all the statements about leaving comments. I like to leave comments when I visit blogs, but if I have to jump through hoops, I just give up.

Crazy, unless, there was good reason to go back (wink, wink)
