In deference to the breastfeeding gods, I am hosting the FIRST EVER mastitis haiku contest right here at Mother Words.
How to enter: Think hard about mastitis. Write a haiku about it. Type your haiku in the comments field of this post.
Note: You need not have experienced mastitis to write a haiku or to win. I am enlisting my two sisters as judges. One has had mastitis, the other has not. Both love a funny haiku. The winner will be chosen Friday, May 30th and will receive a $10 gift card to amazon.com. Only one entry per person.
To get you started, I’ll leave you with this:
kate’s mastitis haiku
Breast and body ache
Plugged ducts, oh how I hate thee
Calgon take me now
I clearly expect to be outdone.
