Ode to a Fly

Hello. I am a fly. No, I'm not Jeff Goldblum, Al Hedison, or Vincent Price. My name is A. Fly (the A stands for Artie) but my friends just call me Fly. I am a very good friend of the June bug. You remember the June Bug don't You. If you don't, you MUST click here and read his story. He hasn't been around for a while so I thought I would stop by and visit MyADHDMe.

She's trying to write a new post for her blog but for some reason, she's having a difficult time. Maybe if I hum a little louder she'll realize I'm just a fly and that I won't bother her.

Gee, I wonder what she's swatting at. Maybe she's enjoying my dance and wants me to buzz around faster.

Ok. She's typing again. Looks like she's starting to focus again. That's good. Oh excuse me. My left wing is itchy and I have to scratch it. I love the buzzing noise it makes when I scratch my wings. Oh, I wonder why MyADHDMe has stopped typing again.

This is odd. When I stopped scratching and buzzing, she started typing again. I wonder what she's writing about. I'll go sit on that machine in front of her with all the words on it to get a closer look. OK, I'm being very quiet now but she still stopped typing.

I'll leave her alone and go check out those bread crumbs in the kitchen.

Boy, I can hear her in there just typing away. I think I'll yell out a buzz to let her know I appreciate the work she does. BUZZ BUZZ.

She stopped again. She must really have issues. It seems that she can't focus at all. She keeps typing and deleting and typing and deleting. I think I'll go and whisper some ideas into her ear to help her get started.

WOW! Now that was rude. She swatted me away like I was just a mosquito. (everyone KNOWS mosquitoes are at the bottom of the insect chain. They have NO class....what, you think only humans can have prejudices?) Anyway, there was no reason at all for her to swat at me like that. Rude, buzz, Rude, buzz, Rude, buzz.

Hey, where is she going? Oh here she is. She's back. What is that strange toy she has. It looks like a plastic stick with a 4 inch square on the end. It doesn't look like she is enjoying it very much. As soon as she brought it in, she sat it on the floor beside her chair. She's obviously having a hard time staying on task. First typing, then swatting, now getting toys. no wonder she has a hard time getting anything done.

I'll sing her a pretty buzzing song to help her work. Oh look, she must like it. My song is making her want to play with the toy. Maybe it's like a baseball bat. I wonder what she'll use as the ball. Actually it's more like a golf club because she's moving very slow.

I wonder what she's going to XXXXXXXXXXX


We're sorry, but the post that was going to be written tonight has been postponed until another day. ......(does anyone have some Windex and a paper towel?................)

I agree with Kelly...Gross!

You are SOOOOO good!! Surely you write for late night comedy shows... if not, you need to check it out. Your stuff would be a lot better than what they do; it would actually be funny!

I have enjoyed your comments left strewn around, but this is my first visit to your blog - and like potato chips - I'm sure it won't be the last.

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.....I don't know why she swallowed a fly....I guess she'll...die.

Leebird said...

Hey there....I'm gonna pass on commenting on the whole fly thing..:)

I came over from Pamela's post and just wanted you to know that I have prayed for you and your son.

I have three sons, and my greatest desire for them is that they follow hard after God and use their God-given gifts for Him. I see so much of the world in my oldest son, and it scares me. I can completely relate to your feelings.


You have blessed us with amazing boys...boys You created to be amazing men of God. Guard their hearts. Use disappointments and failures to remind them they need You. Use successes and triumphs to remind them that You have Your hand on them. Cultivate in our precious boys: faith, love, compassion, mercy, and the mind of Christ. Thank you for entrusting our boys to us, and help us to be the mom's they need. In Jesus' Name I pray, AMEN!

LOL - Poor Artie.

The three finalists in the Blog Makeover contest have been announced at Rich Gifts & Graphics.

Thanks for participating!

I won't get any sleep tonight.
I'm sure I'll get no rest.
Tomorrow we will get to see
Who won the big contest.

I must admit I hope I win.
I wrote and wrote and wrote.
I wish I had sent flowers to
The ones that are to vote.

But even if I do not win
I won't be a sore loser.
I'll just move out on the streets
And turn into a boozer.

Oh I'm just kidding
Don't you know
Regardless of who wins
I've read of people
Read of God
And met some great new friend!

FriendS FriendS. Not friend.
I really need that edit button!!!

Chatty Kelly said...

Now - if you'd only written that poem last week, you'd be a shoe-in. LOL.

What a nice prayer for you by leebird. Great new friends, indeed.

Chatty Kelly said...

See you at church tomorrow!

Beverlydru said...

I'm totally excited you are in the finalists. Fun fun.

Edie said...

I was wondering who that *friend* was. LOL! You are so clever.

Enjoy church tomorrow. Worship the Lord with all your might! I'm praying that He will speak to your heart like you've never known before.

Ok - Gotta go draw names now!

God's girl said...

Poor Artie :(

Congrats on being a finalist! I agree with everyone who has said you should do stand up comedy! You would do great.

Creative, creative, creative woman!!! And monkeys are seeming more funny since I've visited here.

My ADHD Me said...

It was an honor just being nominated

The Patterson 5 said...

Glad you got him!

HisPrincess said...

LOL! It is blowfly season here in Australia so I can REALLY relate! It's glorious spring weather and the minute you set foot outside you get mobbed by Arties Mob. It's the reason I don't exercise you know. Not my fault at all.
