Tale Weaver # 214 – Curiosity – March 14th

Love these frog images.

This week, our challenge is the word “Curiosity”.

Kids are curious about differences between themselves and also themselves and adults.
My take this week for Tale Weaver is short but true.

Finding the Playboy and Mayfair magazines under my brother’s bed, naturally I compared the shapely centerfold with my flat chested self. If Bro’s reading this, he probably remembers me asking him when I was going to get a ‘pair like that’.  I was about 6.

I became an Aunty for the first time in 1967, but it was that nephew’s brother who turned the tables on my innocent childhood comment from all those years before.
He was also about 6, so I would be 18, and whilst I was not of an hour-glass figure, I had a few curves, some even in the right places.
He was having a cuddle on my lap, and putting his hands on my chest gave me a squeeze and said
‘Oh! What are those Aunty Di?’
I couldn’t say a word for laughing.

This ties nicely in with Teresa’s Story Starter challenge, That really did not help.


About pensitivity101

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.

    Lol…good one Di, just think all these years later you’d most likely have the ideal answer for him.
