It’s Thursday

jan-19th-lanternNeither Mother or Father were impressed.
They saw it as a flagrant display of disrespect and vanity.
‘Just because you can doesn’t mean you have to!’ Mother admonished her offspring.
‘We are leaders, not exhibitionists,’ Father added. ‘It is our duty as Guiding Lights to be uniform in tone and contrast. It confuses people otherwise. They don’t know how to react.’
‘But I’m so pretty!’ the child whined. ‘Why can’t I show my full potential?’
‘Show off you mean!’ said her sister.
‘Shut up! You’re only jealous.’
‘No, I’m not. I can do it too, I’m just not so flashy.’
‘Poppycock! Call that colour? It’s a pathetic pink tinge. Not a patch on my vibrant blue.’
‘And don’t you try it either!’ shouted their mother, nodding at the smallest lantern in the corner attempting to glow.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
