Ellen Oh's First VLOG Ever! and dare...

The dare - Write a ridiculously bad poem and videotape yourself reciting it.
The foolish one - Ellen Oh aka Ello aka Speakswithbadcold
Unfortunately, this video transmission will NOT self-destruct in five seconds...

The poem - a really really bad burrito poem repeated here for your endless amusement:

I love you, she said,
with tears in her eyes.
But we can't be together,
we must say our goodbyes.

How can you do this?
he cried in agony and pain.
How can you leave me
standing in the rain?

You said that you'd love me forever,
but it was all untrue
All it took was one burrito.
What's a man to do?

Should I have gone to the bathroom?
Should I have held it in?
Was it really so bad?
Was it such a big sin?

She nodded quite sadly
as she said with a sigh.
It's pretty bad,
I nearly died!

My mascara has run
and my nose is still burning.
My contacts have melted,
and my stomach's still turning.

We can't be together,
this much is true.
You fart like an elephant.
You stink like a zoo.

With that she turned away
and quickly departed.
Leaving the boy and his burrito
completely brokenhearted.

Duh End

  2. *Snickers* That was awesome! It had me laughing all the way through til the end. xD

  3. Ellen, this was hilarious. I was giggling til the end. (Also: you look adorable, even with a cold ;) )

  4. Awwwww, thank you everyone! You are making me blush - which is not so cute...

  5. Hahaha, you're adorable...and quite the poet. ;-) I hope your head cold has improved and your brain is un-melted. :)

  6. HAAAA! That was so funny. I don't know that I'd say it was "ridiculously" bad. I think it was actually quite clever. Plus, you and your cold were "ridiculously" cute so it makes up for any shortcomings in the poem. :) Hope you're feeling better.

  7. Oh, poor burrito boy! And all he was probably trying to say was, "I feel comfortable being myself around you." ;)

  8. Yeah, the fact that you wrote a poem that actually rhymes means it's 1000x better than anything I could have ever come up with! Ellen, you are adorable!!!

  9. Thank you guys! I actually feel a lot better today! just in time to race around for doctor's appointments and back to school orientations! And why is it that all elementary schools smell like burrito boy? just saying...

  10. You're good at this...completely at ease even with a cold. :) Feel better soon!

  11. AWWWWWWWWWWWW ELLEN YOU ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE!! I want to come and hug you so bad!! ♥ Awww it is so nice of you to do this even when you had a cold. ♥ I must brew you some of Uncle Iroh's tea from The Jasmine Dragon. ♥ That poem was amazing! It totally reminded me of a children's book. You should totally publish it! ♥ Haha, I will totally buy it. :)

    Love always,
    Ashley @ FireStarBooks
