My Tongue Fell Out

S. L. Chessor

" My Tongue Fell Out," was written about or inspired by family. My mother was very much the lady of the house. There never was a time that her hair was not in place, or her make up wasn't on. Sometimes I think she slept standing up, because, no one could look that good when they get out of bed in the morning. Dad, my hero, seemed to be serious all the time. He worked hard to provide for his family and said things like they were. I didn't know he had a sense of humor until I was thirty-five. I guess he was worried we wouldn't take him seriously when he told us to do something. My brother Bill, the middle child, is a story by itself, he made me mad most of the time when we were growing up. He was the class clown and to this day can make me laugh like no other person can. My baby brother managed to stay in trouble most of the time. I like to think that I am a good blend of all, but you will be the judge. "My Tongue Fell Out," was inspired by my niece. Children can say the cutest things when they are challenged. "Little Boy at the End of the Driveway, "and "Christmas with Jesus," are just a few of the poems inspired by my own children. My husband inspired "I Wanna Buy a BVD." We should all face facts, there are some family members you talk about and some that you don't, but I think my readers will identify with many of the poems that are in this book. They will touch your life in one way or another. S.L. Chessor lives in small town Indiana with her husband, nieces, and their dog Sassy.
