Friday Fictioneers 12th June

This your  first time?
Yep. I’m really excited. How about you?
No, ‘fraid I’m an old hand and the novelty’s worn off.
That sounds a shame. The view will be spectacular.
So I understand.
What’s that supposed to mean?
Sorry to spoil your expectations, but look where we actually are. We’re on the inside in the bowels of the canvas and every so often we’ll get a hot blast up our burners …..
You mean we won’t see anything? Nothing at all?
Well, we might if someone’s got a video camera beneath us and the angle’s right.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

    This made me laugh and the two faces – one looking shocked for not being able to see and the other shocked at the naiveté of the other!

  6. Well, I hope they still enjoy the ride … 😉

    There is always that one person…
    Mind you, kinda sucks when you think you will be getting a view to something completely different.

    Yeah, you know, maybe I’ll just stay earth-bound 🙂
