Look who's talking now...
Someone yelled, Oh My God!
...and then I felt like I was swimming
in a long tunnel
with no light
bouncing off the walls, searching for a reason...
Propelled by some motivator
I was feeling my way through
thinking, if only I could see in the dark!
If only I could see...
Now wait... whatís up ahead?
It looks like someoneís home, and they left the light on!
So, Iím beating and Iím beating...
and when I couldnít get an answer, I just forced my way in!
...if only I could get a hand!... now, Iím yelling,
saying things like, Iíd walk a mile for even a foot to have such opportunity!
And, this...this could be the moment of our life;
the one we donít have to wait for, they just come...
Well, I made it alright, Here I am!
Exchanging DNA between cell mates
Who makes up the rules, anyway?
Is this really going to be my final destination?
From here on out.., I guess, .it just me and you,
That is, unless...someone stupid comes along, tries to ruin our life by ripping us apart,
in order to kill all the possibilities of
our new future together!
No, baby...weíll do our time...and when that sweet little lady,
who screamed, "Oh my God!", way back when, sees us,
Sheíll be so happy its all over!
Iíll be wailing, and youíll probably pee on the doctor!

|Giggle! Kimmers, you have outdone yourself, and that's saying a lot! And, as for peeing on the doctor, well, he's just a peon anyway. Well done, Kimmy. You might send this one to Art With Words (I'll bet Debra would giggle, too).

|Very expressive and very origianal work Kimmy that I agree should be posted to little Miss Socialite or for that matter to all the celebrities who believe the law does not apply to them.

|Your humorous cynicism is refreshing Kimmy. Perhaps you should e-mail this to Paris in the clink. She could read it aloud at the evening meal.
