nice try


Rolled twice

About face


We don’t tolerate

That TYPE of behavior

Young lady, you know better

Than to lick all the chocolate

From the raisin and peanut candies

And then put them back in the covered dish

Her panties rippled

As the wind escaped her drawers

From the beans she ate

It was hidden in plain sight

And calling my name

Cooked half the carrots

They should have lasted all week

But then I ate one

The fork just kept on moving

Bugs ain’t got nothing on me

Pretty in Pink

My response to Charli Mills, Carrot Ranch .99 word Flash Fiction challenge this week. We had to talk about paint in some form or fashion.  Be sure to follow Carrot Ranch to be apprised of future challenges! https://carrotranch.com

Yes, this is a true story and why I kept going back for bi-weekly torture for over a decade is beyond me! 

I had never had my nails done professionally. But since I was now a female business executive, who did a lot of public speaking, it was suggested that I spruce up the ends of my fingers.

The nail tech was chatty and did a great job! We chose a bright shade of deep pink polish and everything was perfect.

She admonished me to use the side of my finger to open my car door, lest I break the new nails.

Sheepishly, I walked back into the salon a few minutes later. Smiling, she said, “I’ve been waiting for you.”

Writers watch their friends

As they retire from work

With no hobbies planned

But a wordsmith considers

Retirement a hobby
