Lush Haiku, French Style!

*** IMPORTANT ALERT***  I wrote this and scheduled it before I saw Nicky wrote texting Haiku.  How embarrassing.  But it is late and I’m tired.  My bad, Nicky!  Day eight of the WWFC blog writing challenge brings the subject “French.”  I think it is time to reveal the monkey on my back.  My addiction.  My downfall.  My name is Katherine Murray, and I am a Lushaholic.

MacArthur Center Lush Store

Today I went to Lush.

Stinky soaps, lotions, potions and shampoo bars.

Smelling like a French Whore!

  • You’ll have to elaborate. I know nothing about French whores.

  • Mel

    LOLOL Well, LOOK who’s lurking!

    A trip and snagged up smelly stuff is GOOD for self care, methinks.
    Barbie…..notsomuch. LOLOL

  • I have never heard of Lush. As far as using a Haiku. Isn’t that always odd when things coincide. Creative minds sometimes think alike.

  • It looks like a cool store, but I would have trouble walking around on such a slanted floor.

  • Well, that’s an interesting use of the French theme. 😉

    OMG, it’s so funny that you posted this about LUSH, Katherine, because we have one here in Philly and I walked right by it just the other day. Yes, you can actually smell it from the street when the doors are open during the summer months.

    Love the Barbie!!!

    How did I know this was going to be a fake Barbie post? I was just hoping ~ love it! You’ve got to go and check out my REAL French Barbie …

  • French whores actually don’t smell half bad, Katherine.

  • In order of preference, my favourite smelling whores are …..

  • Now I kind of want to smell like a French whore. Never thought I’d say that.

    • Please say it again. 🙂

  • Hey Katherine! Good grief woman, do they have LUSH in the States? Or (gasp) are you a BRIT?! =O Indigo

  • No need to apologize Katherine. I like your Haiku better than mine! 🙂

    I’ve been to Lush. I like the smell of French whore a lot.

    And I don’t think that’s Fake Barbie.

    This haiku is more complex than most. There’s assonance, consonance, and even a funny punchline. Those poor French whores really do get a bad name, don’t they?
