The Silent P

Bonjour from Campagne Maison


"P"

Dear Ms. Matlock,

I saw my physician yesterday and was diagnosed with pneumonia. He sent me to the pharmacy for some medication. While I was there, I saw some photos of people with psoriasis and started having phantom pains. I can't stop scratching! Then, on my way home, I stopped for supper and developed ptomaine posioning.

Today, I have to see a psychiatrist because I have developed psychasthenia. I should have listened to that psychic instead of accusing her of being a phoney. Maybe the best thing for me to do is read a Psalm and stay in bed.

I would turn in my paper with a pseudonym this week, but I know that you check attendance and would miss me. I have studied really hard on my spelling this week, so please excuse me from class today. I will return next week.


I am linking up with Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday. Please grab her button on my sidebar and head on over to read all the other "P" words for this week!

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today. We love having company.

Au revoir,

Very good use of P words. At first I thought you were really sick, but as I read on I decided you couldn't possibly have all those things. I'm glad you're well!

You are phenomenal and a philosopher. You come up with the most interesting blogs. You come up with some great phrases too.

Hi Jacque,

Great "p's". Very funny, a good read before heading to work.
I am so excited about granddaughter #4. Can you believe it? I just wished they lived here. I am enjoying the webcam though. I think that was one of the best gifts ever.

Have a Blessed Mother's day.

big hugs
