FFfAW for 20th February

Here is my offering for the 155th FFfAW challenge. Thanks Joy.

‘It’s a reverse pool Sid!’ Bobby cried.
‘Come on in and you’ll see!’
After removing his shoes and socks, Sid entered the water.
‘You idiot! It’s freezing!’
‘What did you expect? A hot spa? That’s not what I meant. Come closer and look.’
Bobby stood a few feet away from his friend, his ankles barely covered.
Sid however was at the edge and almost up to his knees!
‘It’s deeper at the sides than it is in the middle, see?’
‘I don’t care.’ Sid said. ‘It’s cold and I’m getting out. My mum will kill me if I ruin my trousers.’
Disappointed that Sid hadn’t fallen for his joke and continued to wade towards him,
Bobby stepped off the rock he had covered with shingle.
He splashed his way back to the edge and Sid helped him out.
‘Idiot!’ he said again, playfully punching him on the shoulder.

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.
