A modern exchange

You Who

“Missed Fix Haiku


Put my quarters in

Turned the knob… and no YooHoo

Really wanted one”


Left that on your message board

Being haiku, it needed no signature

Home from work today I found

A  full YooHoo on my table

I asked Kid 2, Where’d the YooHoo come from?


Kid 2:

“It was on the front steps.”


So I texted you:

Was it You Who left the YooHoo?

Was that YooHoo from you?  (Who?)


You replied:

Yes.  It was You Who left the note

About you not getting YooHoo.



Who, me?  Whew.

I just found out that you left two.

(Kid 2 drank one.)


I put YooHoo 2 in the fridge.


Then I thought of another haiku.


“Had a hankering

For a smooth, hard, cool YooHoo—

You to the rescue!”


Very inappropriate.  I didn’t send that one.

Even though, when the neighbor

Was looking to adopt a kitten

I texted Did Carl get some pussy?

And you seemed to find it funny 

And replied, When you put it that way

I hope he did.

And I said,
Someone should.

Too many unwanted ones roaming the street.

Your emoticon blushed.



When I finally decided to drink YooHoo 2

It had been drunk by Kid 1.


So I ate yogurt.

With granola and fruit.

This is wonderful. You are so clever. Or did it really happen to YooHoo?

This made me laugh last night when I read it, and I'm laughing this morning as I read it again. As e-bird might say, "woo-hoo" to "you who."

Most modern exchanges go something like this:
