Weekend Writing Prompt #88 – Foundations

Here we go with our first 2019 weekend writing prompt from Sammi.

Sally looked at her boy and scolded
‘What were you thinking?’
‘We’re learning about foundations at school, and I thought I’d borrow some.’
‘What? Surely they’re not teaching you about make-up in class?’
Visions of Boy George in all his finery flashed before her. Tom was only seven.
‘No. Buildings. We’ve been playing with plastic bricks and I thought I’d lay them on something solid, just like they do on Dad’s building site.’
‘Foundation cream is not building material!’
‘Then why does Dad say it fills the cracks in your face?’

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.
