Every morning I read something funny to start my day. I’ve got 3 books. Two are for kids and one is R-rated. “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir)” by Jenny Lawson is hilarious. And these poetry books for kids (or adults) are just plain fun, especially if I read them out loud: “The New Kid on the Block” (Jack Prelutsky) and “A Light in the Attic” (Shel Silverstein). Here’s a cute sample:

OVERDUES, by Shel Silverstein

What do I do?
What do I do?
This library book is 42
Years overdue.
I admit that it’s mine
But I can’t pay the fine –
Should I turn it in
Or hide it again?
What do I do?
What do I do?”

Now how can you read that and not chuckle?
