Sunday Photo Fiction – October 28, 2018

This week’s photo is supplied by Rick Spaulding, Susan’s husband. Doesn’t it just open up a multitude of ideas?
His game was Trick or Treat, but in order to win the prize, you had to be brave.
‘Everyone pick a head, put your hand in the mouth and see what you can find.’
Hayley chose the minion, her friends each selecting one of the others.
On a count of three, they slipped their hands inside and probed around with their fingers.
‘Urgh!’  she said. ‘It’s all slimy,’ whilst the other kids were laughing at the cool stickiness.
‘There’s nothing in mine,’ said nine year old Rupert licking the green jello off his fingers.
‘Mine neither,’ said Christopher, who had cotton candy in his pumpkin head.
‘I’ve got something though!’ and Simon pulled out a long pink candy ‘tongue’ from Penny Wise’s mouth.
‘Not fair!’ shouted Hayley. ‘It’s my party, I should win!’
She withdrew her hand which was covered in brains, blood and guts.
The kids screamed, Hayley fainted and his wife called the cops.
Pops tried to explain he had no idea where the gore had come from as it was all supposed to be fake and he’d thought the kids would enjoy it.

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.

    A little scary story of blood and gore inside a pumpkin head. Nicely done.
