FOWC with Fandango — Umbrage

Fandango has given us Umbrage as a word prompt today.

In the past I’ve found it amusing when someone takes umbrage when they don’t get their own way. Some people refer to it as getting the hump.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Funny, I don’t have any umbrages and never offer them round, but people in my vicinity constantly take it.
