The exercise:

Well this was a bad idea. I didn't do my writing before playing ultimate in 40 degree weather, so now I'm stuck doing it afterward. You've been warned.

Um, right. Topic. Let's... go... with... oh, got one. The topic for this week's Two Haiku Tuesday is: bad idea.

It's okay. You don't have to tell me how clever I am. I already know.

Mine:

Playing with matches
In this building made from straw?
Bad idea my friend.

Playing in this heat
With absolutely no subs...
Forfeit, anyone?

Poor Marc! I hope you had plenty of water to drink while you were playing. Running around in that heat sounds difficult verging on suicidal!

I like both haikus equally this week :)

Bad idea

You just ate my lunch!
It's laxative for weight loss--
Not a good idea.

Yeah, we came stocked with water. And the knowledge that we had no subs, so we didn't kill ourselves by putting much effort into either game.

Unsurprisingly we lost both games but we made it out alive, so I think we got a fair deal.

The juvenile side of me likes the first one best. The writer in me likes the second.

I suppose the juvenile writer in me breaks the tie and picks the first one :)

Edit - of yours, that is. Just to be clear.

I think I like my second one better, but I'm not overly fond of either.
