Fib Sunday, you should have stayed at home yesterday!

Pop, pop, pop, dear reader - and welcome to Fib Sunday!

If you don't know what's going on or indeed what Fib Sunday is, click here to read the original instructions. Go on, you'll feel better having dug around in the past. Think of it as a form of time travel!

In brief:

1) I take the topic as given in last week's final entry, write a Fib and give a new topic.
2) Your reply to the topic is in the form of a Fib in the comment section.
3) You then supply the next topic.
4) The next visitor replies with a Fib on the newly given topic and then provides a new topic and so on...

A Fib is a six line, twenty syllable poem with a syllable count by line of 1/1/2/3/5/8. The only restriction on a Fib is that the syllable count follow the Fibonacci sequence. An example of a classic fib:
One
Small,
Precise,
Poetic,
Spiraling mixture:
Math plus poetry yields the Fib.
Last week, Brian left us with the topic of Countdown to Christmas. My response:

Cards,
Gifts;
Oh God!
And I'm here
Skating in the park.
It gets worse with each passing day.
