“Our life needs more ‘sizzle’,”
Said Husby. To me.
And I wondered just what in the world could he mean?
So I went to the lexicon,
Searched the word there.
I admit that the things that I found made me stare.
It said ‘sizzle’s a hissing sound,
Which happens whenever I’m making a meal.
It also suggested
To burn up or sear.
Sounds to me like a branding iron on a calf’s rear.
Or the hissing sound made
When burning or frying.
That happened last night. He thought something was dying.
And lastly, to seethe
With deep anger: resent.
Now I’m really unsure just what my Husby meant.
So to my dear friends,
Use a whisper. (Don’t shout.)
Can you tell me what life with more ‘sizzle’s’ about?
