Lame is a hardy, robust bowl of steamy homemade stew.
Lame is finding crusty nuggets in the bottom of your shoe.
Lame is a * bath with squirrels biting on your knees.
Lame is going to the store and buying only peas.
Lame is a nap I am forced to foresake.
Lame is finding toenails baked right in your cake.
Lame is wearing big thick gloves while trying to take a wiz.
Of all these things, Lame really is." -A poem by Mischa
