It’s “Farewell, Sally Struthers Week” here at Morag and Me because my good friend, Mavis, is having surgery today to get rid of a nasty little hanger-on-er with the initials SS*. She’s going to be in the hospital for a few days, and she probably won’t be up and around much for the next while even when she’s home, so she is basically the perfect audience for my blog – bored and incapacitated. You’re mine, Mavis! You’re miiiiine! Muah ha ha hahahhaha!!
*I named Mavis’ cyst “Sally Struthers” – I’m not quite sure why, but it seems pretty fitting, don’t you think?
I wrote the following haiku, in memory of Sally Struthers. I call it “So Long, Sally – There’s No Ovaries Where You’re Going!”
Hey Sally Struthers**!
Get your shit – it’s time to go.
Die die die die die!!
**To the real Sally Struthers – I am so so so so so so sorry. This poem is not for you. Please don’t sue me!
Anyway, let’s celebrate Farewell Sally Struthers Week in style by writing a blog every day until Sunday to keep Mavis entertained while she recovers from her operation. Leave a link to your website in the comments (even if you don’t intend to blog regularly this week) so my girl has something to read besides outdated low-tech novels and magazines (blech! Who even reads those things anymore?!).
