Astonish: Daily Post Prompt

Some people are gobsmacked, others surprised or amazed, but how many are truly astonished?
Such is the single word prompt today.
I don’t think I have ever had this effect on anyone. Sure I’ve surprised a few people, but astonish them? That would be a No.
As for anyone having that effect on me? Maybe.

However, I do remember an absolutely amazing coincidence coming out of Amsterdam’s Centraal Station on May 11th 1991 when the barrel organ starting playing just as I cleared the gates.
It was my first time ever out of the country and we were on our honeymoon.
I think you could definitely say I was astonished then as I felt like a Queen/Million Bucks though Hubby assured me he hadn’t planned it (but wished he had).

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.
