What is a lifeku?

A lifeku is a haiku about daily life. For those who are unfamiliar with haiku, it is a form of Japanese poetry usually about nature, "profound," and formatted in 3 lines of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. Feel free to check out some famous haikus if you still don't get it.

Comment. It'll make the popular kids like you.

Welcome to 2009 everybody! For the first week of the new year, we here at the Daily Lifeku have put together some Daily Resolutions, obviously in haiku form.

Today's resolution starts off the week with a little recommendation for those of you who have seem to forgotten the lost art of bladder control. If you think that this only applies to 8 year olds and your weird mentally handicapped cousin you only see once a year, you would be very very wrong. Just in the month of December, I witnessed not one, but two pee-myself moments on the metro that had every person in the car shoving themselves against the edges:

Resolution 1
Next year I will not pee on
Myself in public

Glad to hear of your #1 resolution. It's a good one to actually follow through on!

Mary, it's funny you sent me this T-Shirt, because someone actually bought it for me. I'll be posting it as soon as I get by bags unpacked.

On the resolution, it's really not for me. They are more like resolutions for the general public around me, because they really need it.

That equipment there
Will not make me lose the weight
If I stare at it.

Speaking of workout equipment...I think the V house probably has the record of having the most unused workout equipment possible...between the treadmill and total gym and wii fit, TWO rock and roll steppers...

Daughter said...

What's a rock n' roll stepper?

meemo said...

Tony Little's Rock and Roll Stepper...

I am going to look at this link, but before I do I know that Tony Little is responsible for the Gazelle so I am anticipating something extremely ridiculous...

... Did you actually buy one of these? Wouldn't it just be cheaper to go running? It's like a side to side Gazelle, but way less funny.
