I know on Memorial Day I should be thinking of the Vets,
but instead I'm focused on some silly BBQ regrets.
You may have guessed I like to posses wacky things
because I relish in the smiles their appearance brings.
Here are five pieces of flare that I wish someone would buy me.
They would really liven up any Memorial Day party.
(5) An inflatable entertainment center would be fun,
especially if it was a float-it-in-your-pool-type one.
I like the excitement of using electronics near water.
It's safety like that that makes a dad proud of his daughter.
(4) This 24-carat gold plated barbecue
might appear higher on the top five list for you,
but I think it would be hard to protect and maintain.
Plus, on the wacky scale, it's really rather plain.
(3) The BBQ Sword is funny and fairly well known.
I heard of them and promptly wanted one of my own.
I think having one would make me a bit cooler,
plus when my sister comes over I can properly duel her.
(2) The Cthulhu Roaster might be scary looking to some...
but I find those shocked and blank stares silly fun.
I don't even really like to eat hot dogs myself,
but I'd cook them fairly often if I had this on my shelf.
(1) The item I most covet is a watermelon stroller
which would keep cool utilizing power that's solar.
I'd wheel my vodka snacks into parties in style
giving everyone something funny to talk about for a while.
Whatever you do today, I hope your Memorial Day is fun.
There's a million ways besides the above to make today a great one!
