Photo Challenge #228

Our challenge is to use the image below as inspiration for a poem or short story.

She had just finished watching the latest blockbuster and didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Super heroes, alternate identities, vampires and werewolves, so old hat, so already done, so DULL. What was needed was originality…….. like her.
Sure the male lead had his merits, nice buns, eyes and a wicked smile, with a simpering heroine whose makeup didn’t run in the rain and her hair always perfect despite a howling gale. She laughed then at her choice of words.

With the soft sound of the sea behind her and the smoke curling from her cigarette, she smiled. How she would have loved to get her claws into that Wolverine.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    So, you’re a Hugh Jackman fan, eh? 😀

    • Oh drool. And then some. I saw him interviewed on Parkinson and liked him then. He can sing too. I said “Lucky Bitch” aloud when Kate Beckinsale got to grips with him in Van Helsing. Hubby said he’d go out for pizza if he knocked on the door………… to Italy.

  3. What a photo. Great story. I love the attitude and the hint of sarcasm at the recognition of her hypocrisy. 🙂 Well told!
