Happy Fri-Yayyyyyy Everyone!
The days continue to surprise and entertain in perplexity which always require comic relief, so I don’t go mad. Seriously, I’m always surprised by what seems so logical and a no brainer to me, that isn’t clear to others. It continues to remind me of Murphy’s law and how anything and everything can go wrong. This is especially true in the world of contracting. I can imagine now how many of you laughed at me when I first started this project and was so excited and my contractors could do no wrong.
Yesterday’s word prompt on Twitter was Pot. They have a 365 day prompt so you could play every week if you wanted to by I’m so busy, I’ve alloted Thursday to play and the word was pot and I thought “I’ve got nothing” but as I sat with it for a bit the words made their way to the page, prompted by the night before when we went in to check out our project and walked into our toilet in the new bathroom, after they hung the door. Slight problem, you couldn’t bypass the toilet and close the door because there wasn’t enough room. We were like, “why didn’t they put and outswing door instead of having it open into the room”.
I called our architect and he said “I specced this for a small wall mount toilet, so it won’t work with a regular toilet.” We were irate and perplexed as this was never told to us, nor was it written on the plans. We truly couldn’t fathom how this happened and there was no communication about this. It’s an easy enough fix to turn the door around to an outswing, even if it won’t swing in the direction we would like, unless we buy a new door. At this point we’ll cut our losses, and live with it and see how it goes instead of pouring more money into it.
So here is my Twitter Poem I came up with on the word Pot that made me at least laugh a lot through the day which I was grateful for, since there have been so many snafus daily. I have to keep my sanity somewhere. You can see it by clicking the link above and check out others as well. Would love you to follow me there as well if you are so inclined as I don’t post them on WP as a general rule of thumb. Visit when you can on my site The Unique Times with Cindy. ☺️💕💖

With Twitter the fun part is it is only 233 characters max, so you it forces you to be quick and succinct. It’s a fun way to get my mind to work in a different way and know it’s finite. You might want to consider joining in on occasion as well, Some people play everyday which is amazing to me.
Here’s the picture of the tight bathroom squeeze:
We are nearing our final phase of this project with a move in date of July 15th our Anniversary and the finish work is the fun part. hmmmm 🤷♀️
Have a peek at the progress:
Emojiku with Suzette:
As most of you know Goff James has been on a break from posting and hasn’t been playing with our Emojiku’s at the moment, so I decided to post one that Suzette posted and play along called Room in View Haiku 2022
Suzette B does amazing work in poetry, prompts and stories with gorgeous and clever imagery so do visit her when you get a chance. Goff is the master of Haiku and the driving force behind the posting and I wanted to honor his presence today along with Suzette’s brilliance.

What is emojiku?
The emojiku came about by Cindy Georgakas and Goff playing emoji tennis in the WP comments box. It was a natural step to take it one stage further and develop from being just a fleeting form of discourse into something more poetically constructive.
An emojiku is a hybrid poetic form, and is similar in format to a haiku / senryū or haiga. However there are no strict restrictive set rules. The format is open and fluid.
In the case of an emojiku the source image is an emoji. The emojiku is made up of at least three different emoji. Each emoji being the inspiration for one line of the short poem.
The process of creating an emojiku begins by a blogger sending three different emoji to a fellow blogger.
The second blogger responds by writing their emojiku and forwarding it back to the original blogger; who, in turn responds by writing a counterpoint emojiku using the same emoji images.
Join in the Emojiku fun and share
