Office coffee nope

Grocery store nope

laundry
nope nope nope and nope

Catching up

Are you kidding?

But you & me
us

yes

Yes Yes

So far, so good! Half-way through the month and this is #15 of 30 Poems in November to benefit the Center for New Americans. Today’s theme is NOPE. Remember, the themes were imagined by my kids who are each creating 30 new drawings this month as part of our fundraiser. Their themes are... interesting.

  1. Nope, nope, and nope! All the boring of everyday, all the frenzied of everyday...I actually enjoy going to the gracery and wandering about. But then, I don't have children to worry over, just my husband.
