The nonsense word this week is “polershmett”
Polershmett: (n) bad luck, misfortune, bad karma
The store was so crowded It figures I thought I was late getting started What polershmett! I thought. How I hate big crowds It's always so loud. You can't find a thing! Because of the crowd. I glanced at my list Devising a plan To obtain all the things I had written down. The aisles I traveled Grabbing this and that Weaved out and in Between carts laden with kids, food, and gin. Oh polershmett! Why today? My cell phone ringing I answer and shout I'm on my way! I felt a little guilty For telling a lie. Not sure why I did it Wishful thinking I guess. I started thinking About the gin I will need a drink after this shopping nightmare I'm in! When finally I arrived At the end of my quest I got in line to settle my debt. What did I forget? I wondered I went over my list reassured after checking I had gotten it all I'm done. What polershmett I'm having His register had just broken. Sorry, ma'am, he said to me You'll have to move to another line, please. I'm closing I scowled at the guy that was making me move to another long line which one should I choose? With the luck, I am having I'll be here all day. What's this I see? A new line opening. Oh good, I think. I'll be set free. Then a crowd of shoppers came rushing up to the front Before I could move a new line had formed. And here I still stand Losing my mind. What did I do to deserve this bad luck?
