Tale Weaver – #293 – Making Sense of Nonsense – 17th September – Suddubsome.

Now this is an interesting Tale Weaver choice from Michael this week as I was thinking the other day we hadn’t had one for absolutely AGES!!!
Michael’s challenge then:
This week create your own meaning for “suddubsome”. Be it animal, vegetable or mineral, real or imaginary let your imagination play with it.

Brian knew he was onto a winner. Marketing of new products was his forte and he had come up with the perfect name for a new washing powder to be used with the old dolly scrub boards.
After the second Big Bang that blew technology out of the window and things like auto washing machines were destined for the scrap heap, his Suddubsome products would sell like hot cakes as housewives had to return to the old ways of laundering their clothes.
Suddenly there would be a huge call for wooden barrels, dollys, scrubbing boards, and even the old mangles. He’d be rich beyond his wildest dreams and couldn’t wait to get started.
His wife was gobsmacked. Sometimes his imagination and enthusiasm got confused.
There was no way either she, or her friends, would deign to hand wash ANYTHING and ruin their manicures.

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.

  1. A scrub board is the only thing that I still have from my grandmother. I never used it but it has memories for me.

    I like that idea of a second big bang. Great take Di, thanks for participating.

  3. murisopsis says:

    With the 2nd Big Bang I’m guessing there might be even bigger changes – maybe the laundry will now be done primarily by the men folk!

  4. Sadje says:

    Second Big Bang will leave us all floundering. That is if we survive!

    That is a great take on the prompt. Loved reading this!
