I once had a dozen tiffins,
But i traded tham all in for a muffin,
And I ate it with my pet puffin…

Dozing on dozens of dodgy dreams, we break out of doxy seams.
I grabbed the dozen knives that lay carefully on my father’s bed. Grabbing them all with one hand I held tight, not even wincing at the pain that stabbed into my hand as the blades cut my palm. I just ran. Ran from my family, ran from my life. I knew that I would never be able to look back, but these knives, these dozen knives were everything.

If I had a dozen paintings, I would give them to you. A dozen years, I guess that’s all I am good for. Still yours. A dozen flowers….everyday….

It lasted only but a dozen short moments. Only a dozen moments is how long it took to ruin a year of sweet happiness. I do this. I get too addicted, and so I have to run away. I’m sorry I repaid you with a dozen moments. I’m sorry a million times. Not just a dozen. A million.

doughnuts. i love them. they come in boxes of twelve. i like the glazed ones but i dont really like sprinkles or chocolate cuz it distracts from the wonderfully magical taste that they already have. also eggs come in dozens.

There’s at least a dozen of them, hiding in the grass. I wasn’t sure what we were going to do about it but we had to do something. We couldnt escape unnoticed. This was going to be a conflict.

This may not be true, but I heard that the term baker’s dozen started back in the day where a baker could get their hand chopped off for shorting a customer of a fair dozen. This would be the same “back in the day” where you could be killed for poaching the king’s deer. Anyway, to avoid this, baker’s threw in an extra roll to avoid a shortage. Flour, water, sugar, and yeast are cheap, hands, less so. Also kind of necessary for baking, but I bet you can still knead dough with a stump. After it’s healed of course.

It didn’t matter how many times she’d done it before, she always felt the thrill of leaping out into open space again.
She’d spent more time in the air than she’d spent on the ground that summer, swinging between towers and riding the winds as they swung her back and forth. She felt as comfortable sitting suspended in a harness as she did sitting in a chair, and indeed, there were times when she’d feel the sway of the winds rocking her back and forth, even as she sat on the ground. “Every time I look down at the ground, I get that feeling all over again,” she said, grinning. “Every time I run for the edge and jump out into thin air, it’s another leap of faith and another rush of adrenaline.”
It was the best job she’d ever had.

there are a dozen reasons why
i shouldn’t fall in love with you
but do you think my heart really cares?
that’s why i can’t help it
i love you
and that’s the only reason that matters

He was only a dozen or so steps from my house, but luckily, I was safe inside the car. We passed his small frame, walking slowly along the sidewalk. He was playing his guitar, presumably on the way to my house. I thought he was joking earlier, but I was obviously mistaken. My stomach dropped while the car flew by as the thought sunk in. I–boring me–had a stalker.

A dime a dozen is what most people say.. but what does that mean? Does it mean we are special, “worth it”? What does worth really mean?
Does it imply significance? A chance at something meaningful or complete?
My room mates are having beautiful love in the ext room, and I find that worth at the very least 12 pennies to bide their time in explaining the love they have fore one another and how they express it.
I feel that any love I have in recent years will be worth the price of a dozen marks, a dozen glances, a carton of eggs spent breaking and heating on a Sunday morning, asking me how I like them when I am a vegetarian and do not eat such things, settling for coffee and the pancakes he makes by the Dozen.
How do I stack up, Oneword? How do I measure? Is Aunt Jemimima not acceptable for you and your short framed reference of being?
I do love syrup best served hot; perhaps she will be stirred into a batter if Being this fine new Saturday when Jack Johonson makes Banana Pancackes and wonders at her bubbly toes.

There were a dozen of them, scattered throughout. They darted across the room as if their entire lives were at stake. One lost second, and everything would be gone. Ruined.
It was a rather scary thought, she pondered as she watched them roam so swiftly.

I just read nearly three dozen quotes by Rick Santorum that reinforce the idea that he is a frothy mixture of … you know the rest. How can one man be so filled with ignorance and hatred? How can that same man nearly become the supreme ruler of the state of Iowa? Sadly, I have nothing pithy to say. Here are the quotes: http://bit.ly/z4v9Gb

A dozen eggs. Perfect, round, untouched eggs. They’re sitting there, on the floor of the coop. The yellow hen looks at them proudly, disguising her pride. She clucks to herself and walks away. I pick up first one, then two, then finally all of the eggs and put them in my basket. She didn’t lay them all, of course, but she acts as if she did.

dozens and dozens of…what? this word is so familiar, but i don’t think i have used this much. i usually use tens or hundreds. perhaps i ought to learn how to make use of this word.

dozens of kittens scattered the library floor.
“What am I to do with them all?” she shouted over their mewlings.
“I rather like them with mustard,” he replied with a shrug. “Damnably furry, though. That’s a bother.”

A dozen, the amount of times I think of you in a moment. It is so hard to live without you when I see something you would like or laugh at. But only you, and your special sense of humour and your special way to show your love. I wish you stayed on this earth, we need more beautiful people here. You live on in my heart daddy.

I counted the things I knew, as he always told me to do, go with what you know don’t panic don’t let them see weakness. They stared at my face which was blank of expression I started listing the dozens of things I did know. I couldn’t lie they were all leads in his murder

It was cheaper by the dozen. The items in the market were that much more affordable. As they strolled down the aisles, they could see all the different possibilities of items that they could hold in a home together. It all works out.

I slipped down the drew drenched hill, plunging through the wet veld to reach the wild flowers growing on the banks of the stream,I picked her a dozen.

One dozen, that’s 12. Two and a half dozen is 30. I used to think it was 26. I don’t know, I suck at math. 12 + 12 = 24 + 6 = 30. Duuuh. The year is two thousand dozen. Stupid .__.

A dozen seagulls flew above as she walked down the empty dock. Just the wind and the ocean, just as she’d planned. The sun was just rising and she took a deep breath of the salty air. It was just what she needed in addition to getting away from the town she’d spent almost her whole life at.

Dozen? Dozen, okay. I was hoping it would be some dramatic word, like “emotions” or “antidisestablishmentarianism” but dozen works. I have a dozen things I need to do. I need to take at least a dozen credits. I have dozens of friends. I need dozens more days to accomplish what’s on my to-do list.

girls like you are a dime a dozen he yelled. as if it was supposed to hurt me in anyway. it didnt. it made me laugh, it made me giggle like a school girl. who the fuck was he kidding. i was borderline perfect and he borderline fucked up. he would never be able to find someone like me. i laughed all while trying to convince myself i was right. but who the hell was i kidding. he’d find someone about 10 times better, prettier and skinnier and id still be alone. but thats just how some cards are dealt. youll eventually get over it, move on, but never forget it happened.

“So, I had a dozen siblings, right?” “Not a dozen. Two.” “Yeah, two siblings. Right. And they had one of those infant diseases, you know, like–oh what’s it called…” “Typhoid Fever?” “No.” “Whooping Cough?” “No, it was some animal thing…started with a ‘G’, I think…” “Chicken Pox?” “Yeah, that’s it! So they had the Chicken Pox, right?” “That doesn’t start with a ‘G’…” “Yeah, well, no, but still, the Chicken Pox.” “What about it?” “Well, they had them, right? Both of them!” “Yeah? And?” “Well, I didn’t catch it, did I? I was Chicken Pox free. I was and forever will be immune to the Chicken Pox.” “Really?” “…Yeah, no, not really.” “Ah.” “Yeah.” “Bit of a shame, really.” “I always thought so.”

There were a dozen pieces on the floor;
But there could have been so much more.
Her heart just broke, her head was aching;
In just a second, he left her with nothing.

“If there were ten there were a dozen of them running around. The floor was littered with rubbish they had pulled out and thrown away, trampled on or broken,” she said as she bent down, picked up and folded papers from the floor. “I have tidied up a little, but you can see the mess still. Your little friend was there too, very standoffish she was. I heard her saying that it was ‘so boring being stuck here with the babies”, but she acted up as badly as the others.”

to say that i had a dozen of owl cookies is an understatement. I actually quite a bit more. To say that quite a bit more than a dozen owl cookies is ridiculous is ridiculous. You can never have enough owl cookies. To be sure, this is not the most insightful of my posts, but it is perhaps one of the best worded. But even I know, it is worded poorly.

Through the fire I saw you, in time you slipped away
Through the hour glass I caught you looking just the same
I’ve got a dozens more lines I could breathe away.
If only just today.
