Deb Tawna would like to apologize to Dr. Seuss

I like to do it best at night

With good wine and some candlelight.

I’ll sneak a quickie during lunch.

Or right at dawn with Cap’n Crunch.

I often to do it in my bed

When naughty thoughts are in my head.

I sometimes do it in my car

Three times I did it in a bar.

I usually do it at my desk

Not fully dressed, I must confess.

One time I did it on a bus

My battery died and made me cuss.

I could not, would not with a goat

Not even for a cover quote.

Call me easy, I don’t care

Hey – anytime, anywhere.


That sound you just heard was Dr. Seuss rising from the grave and beating me to death with a copy of Green Eggs and Ham.

So when and where do you like to do it?

Write, you perverts. When do you like to write?

What did you think we were talking about?

  1. Fabulous!

    Personally, I like to do it on the dining room table
    When no one is home and I am able.
    I sometimes do it by the pool
    (now don’t get jealous and start to drool…)

    Cheers!

    • Wooohooo! Love it! And hey, the idea for MAKING WAVES was born when I was on a sailboat in Australia, so technically that sorta counts.

    • Know what’s funny? The only part of that I made up is the Cap’n Crunch. Not my breakfast of choice, but all the other things (the bus, the bar, etc.) are truly places I’ve written.

      • You asked for it:
        * clears throat*

        Like Tawna, I like it well when it comes easy,
        As long as the hero is not sleazy.
        I like it better when on vacation,
        when I succumb to sweet temptation.
        I even do it at concerts in the dark,
        Though I later cannot read my own remarks.
        I had a happy ending at a convent,
        though the sisters were not as ardent.
        But I like it best when I leave corporate
        for home, my muse and LOTS OF CHOCOLATE.

  2. If I could, I would
    Some people think I should
    For it would be something to see
    The sight of me
    by the pool or in the house
    writing of some foolish mouse
    Oh I would, if I could
    Don’t you think I should?

    • No, Patrick. You definitely shouldn’t.

      Unless you’re planning to invite me to your pool. Then you totally should.

      • You won’t fret
        when I make you wet
        though some eyebrows will raise, I bet
        I push and thrust
        you knew I was not one you trust
        Now I am in and you are too
        I pushed you into the great wet pool
        but you pulled me with you

  3. Well, since I’ve already been accused of being a pervert. I like it in the den or the Lazboy recliner. Usually I sneak quickies when my hubby is away. A girl’s gotta take care of herself, right? And by taking care I mean writing. 😉

  4. I just tweeted that everyone must come and read this! Can anyone make this poster size?! You rock, Tawna 🙂

  5. Love it, and love that your pic looks like the header of your blog, but I read your blog, and shouldn’t there be something pink on your writing desk?
