I've Never Posed for Playboy...

Moms I'm Not
I Am Not...

June Cleaver.
I look good in heels & pearls,
but never while vacuuming.
And definitely not

Martha Stewart.
Yes, I cook.
Yes, I entertain.
Yes, I garden.
No, I Decidedly Do Not
nor have I ever worn
an electronic monitoring device
on my ankle.

Clair Huxtable.
I'm a teacher, Madame Prosecutor.
the law.
I don't do sweater sets.
I hang out
All. Day. Long.

Maude.
And I'm outspoken,
with a dash of class.

Marge Simpson.
but not of the blue beehive variety.
And I've
Never
Posed
for
Playboy.

It cracked me up when i read that Marge was posing for playboy. Flanders for playgirl - that i'd believe. Have you seen his abs? LOL

Very funny and catchy title, btw I have never posed for playboy either...can you imagine.

Tammy Howard said...

I am none of those women either! (but Maude had a good theme song...)

I'm starting to look a little like Maude these days. (More like BA circa Golden Girls actually.)

I have never posed for playboy either but once I meet my weight goal I'm sending in pictures!

Great post! Very creative and funny.

Mama Kat said...

This is awesome! And that last line is the clincher the way it brings it all back to the title. Great work mama!

It's another dreary day and I needed that. I smiled and then I laughed.
Thank you.

I love the photos that go with each phrase— very unique.

Great answer to the prompt!

I wouldn't want to be any of these women, even though I use the name in vain.
