FFfAW Challenge-Week of December 26, 2017

Our photo prompt is from Enisa

Eric hated the grotesque glass head his wife had found in a junk shop.
He remembered how excited she’d been when she’d given it to him for his birthday, so he didn’t have the heart to tell her it made him feel uncomfortable as it reminded him too much of his domineering father, even if he had been dead five years before they met.
When all he wanted to do was smash it into tiny pieces, he decided to put a pair of glasses on it instead.
He felt better as it reminded him then of one of his favourite comedians from yesteryear.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    How about a red, rubber clown’s nose? Nothing jollies up a scary glass head like a funny red, rubber clown’s nose. šŸ˜‰

    I liked it Di, good response.

  3. As someone who has been wearing spectacles for almost 35 years now, I know that irrespective of how they look, they always make the world appear to be a better place once you put them on šŸ™‚

    • I’d be lost without my ‘windows’. I’ve never fancied contacts, and wearing specs is just part of who I am. The rose tinted ones of ‘youth’ got smashed years ago! Happy New Year.

  4. Isn’t it amazing how such a small item such as glasses can change a person’s view about something? Great story!

  5. That….is a strange photo. *hides under covers*
