A slight imperfection

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a bust of a man. A dark thick liquid is being poured on it.

It was beautiful, his best yet. The smooth contours of the face, the chiselled nose, proud chin and saddened eyes had all been caught perfectly in his artwork. He couldn’t wait to show it off.
Mama was not impressed and poured gravy all over it.
‘Mam!’ he cried.
‘How many times have I told you not to play with your food Billy. Mashed potatoes are not for sculpting.’
Sulking as he ate his masterpiece, he muttered ‘They did in Close Encounters’.

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.
