On the 11th Day of Christmas…

Thanks to Stacey for the suggestion for today’s piece … 10 Lords a-Leaping (although, I was always taught 12 Lords… it doesn’t matter, same principles apply). One day left and then we’re back to normal service. Happy New Year!

10 Lords A-Leaping

“What are you writing?”

“A song, but I’m stuck on this alliteration. The maids are milking, the swans swimming and the partridge is in a pear tree. What do Lords do?”

“Leering?”

“Realistic, but not very family friendly.”

“Lording?”

“Hah! No!”

“They could be laughing.”

“They could, but I feel lords would be more likely to chortle or guffaw than laugh.”

“How about leaping?”

“Like salmon? Ten salmons a-spawning? That’s going to be hard to wrap! Mind you, so are leaping Lords and milking maids. Sod it, leaping will do. Right, that’s that finished.”

“Err… shouldn’t the geese be gaying?”

    Love the idea of “6 geese a gaying…” (Also enjoying the other stories…)
