Good morning and welcome to Coffee and Conversation #83 – hosted by PatAndCandy.com!
In honor of Dr Seuss’ birthday, Paul and I took one of those “What Dr. Seuss Character are You?” tests. Turns out, I’m Little Cindy Lou Who and he’s the Lorax. Then he wrote a poem for me about it… (*You might need to know that I’m a few days older than he is…)
With round wonder-filled eyes, and a quivering lip,
Your Cindy Lou traits could down a small ship.
But the premise, my dear, is disturbing: who knew?
To consider a marriage of one no more than two.
But to top the strange concept of marrying a child*,
You’ve joined with a critter straight out of the wild.
He’s shortish, and brownish, and oldish, young lassie
His hair’s like a mop, he’s just not too classy.
His mustache is unkempt, he springs forth from a stump
Your mother will not let you out with the grump.
You could have selected much better for sure:
Bartholomew Cubbins is safe and secure
Just think of your future with Gerald McGrew
Or Peter T. Hooper, or young Waldo Woo
Sylvester McMonkey McBean’s a provider
Heck, even the Wickersham Brothers can light up your fire
You could have had Yertle or Jim McFinnigan as a mate
Imagine your life with Zanzibar Buck Buck McFate!
But no, you selected a husband who’s fuzzy
And hangs out with Barb-a-loots, now doesn’t he or does he?
But while Trufula Tufts may be considered by some quite divine
The Lorax says Cindy Lou Who is JUST FINE!
Wasn’t that just TOO sweet?!
Happy Birthday, Dr Seuss!! (and thanks, honey <3)
