Story Starter Challenge #17

Playing catch up today, so some of my challenge responses will be short and (I hope) sweet or cheeky!

We’ll start off with this one from Teresa

Today’s prompt: “Did you check the date before you used it?’

Her hair was now bright orange instead of the strawberry blonde she’d anticipated.
“Did you check the date before you used it?’
She shook her head.
‘I bought it ages ago but didn’t think hair dye had a best before date.’
‘Oh well, you should be grateful it didn’t all fall out. I can lend you a hat if you like.’

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.
