A Haiku or Two, on Holiday Parties

1 Save

If you like it, save it!

Save and organize all of the stuff you love in one place.

Got it!

If you like something…

Click the heart, it's called favoriting. Favorite the stuff you like.

Got it!

In seventeen beats. 

Here's a way to make your holiday party more fun: Get out scrap paper and a pile of pens and ask each of your guests to write a haiku (and, if you're feeling meta, ask them to write a haiku about holiday parties!). This is the result of our exercise: 


My mother's hors d'oeuvres,
always cream cheese and canned fish.
Someday I'll grow up.


are you my cousin
or a friend of my father?
either way, goodbye.


is it okay if I
just leave this party, go home,
and eat a pizza? 


Why is the punch bowl
empty again? I swear some-
one just filled it up.


Drank too much again.
Everyone I know left.
Need more canapés.
