Expect!


SIX WORD FRIDAY

Six letters, six words, six (main) lines

EXPECT!
(An Acrostic)

Expect the unexpected along the way!
X may follow Y another day!
Possibilities are everywhere, left and right;
Exceptions multiply with all their might.
Curiosities pop up in unexpected places
Try to cover all your bases
*
P.S.
My husband bought an old MG
Yesterday, and it was very unexpectedly!
*
Another shortening of the word for my own purposes! But the two extra lines are quite true!
*

He says it's like this but we don't get it till Monday. You'll have to come to Oz again next year, Mike, to have a ride in it!

YIPPEE!

The Retirement Village was all agog! A new man had arrived!
And, since a single man was rare, the ladies were deprived.
Cynthia couldn't contain herself; she rushed to the gentleman's side
Quickly she asked to know his name which was, incidentally, Clyde.
'Where have you moved from?' Cynthia said, her cheeks a pretty pink.
'Well' said Clyde 'Just yesterday they let me out of clink.'
'What were you there for?' Cynthia said, looking quite wide-eyed.
'Sadly, I was in prison because my third wife died.'
'Oh, how sad!' said Cynthia, drawing-in her breath;
'And how......?' And he replied 'I strangled her to death.'
'Then what about your second wife?' 'I shot her with a gun;
I simply found her conversation wasn't too much fun'.
' It's all so sad' said Cynthia. 'What about the third?'
'I pushed her off a balcony; she died without a word'.
Suddenly Cynthia felt quite warm, in fact all of a tingle.
And she shouted over to her friend
'Yoohoo, Beatie! He's single!'

Expect the unexpected-- and enjoy it!
A new car seems like an
enjoyable kind of unexpected. Oh my!
