A Job at Macca’s (McDonald’s)

Had a part-time job at Macca’s
Back when I was at uni
The pay was barely crackers
(No, really, it was puny!)

We couldn’t just loaf about
Chilling and having fun
We always got reminded
There was cleaning to be done.

“If there’s time to lean, there’s time to clean”.

Being polite to customers
Was sometimes a real drain
Having to suggestive sell?
Oh boy, that was a pain.

“Would you like fries with that?”

But… I received good training
In customer service, with a smile
Looking back, my 3 years there
Were certainly worthwhile.

My pay sure came in handy
For shopping (and going out)
And there were some fun times
That we could laugh about.

Perhaps I could go back there
Earn a little cash, but then…
There’s no way I would ever
Wear that uniform again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vikings Exhibition

Went to a Vikings exhibition
Full of interesting facts
There many relics
Think beads, sword and axe.

 
 
 
Alas, among all the sights
No Ragnar did I see  😞
(Nor any sign of Lagertha
That’s who I’d like to be!) 
 
And, despite my high hopes,
Eric Northman wasn’t there
You know, the Viking vampire
With fangs and blond hair…


 





Sadly, my favourite Vikings
Were nowhere to be seen
I know I’ll never meet them
But a girl can always dream…
 

Red Shoes

Went to Uluru on a family trip
And escaped the winter blues
Returned with many happy snaps
And a pair of new-look shoes.

Red’s not my usual colour
I never choose it in the store
But this red is oh-so-natural
Courtesy of the great outdoors.

These are now my favourite shoes
The red look completely rocks
But, somehow, I’m not a fan
Of the matching socks…

 
 

"Junk" Food

Decided not to cook tonight

Really couldn’t be stuffed
Washing, peeling, chopping?
I’ve done all those enough!

So I sat upon the couch
And ordered food online
Didn’t have to move an inch
That suited me just fine!

The delivery soon arrived
We hungry folk were glad
But soon disappointed…
The food was just so bad.

Covered in lashings of salt
Luke-warm and very greasy
Sure, it was convenient
But it made us all feel queasy 🤢

We knew we had to eat it
We had no choice, you see
Never mind, we washed it down
With a pint of beer (or three)!🍺
