Debut nerves………….

Every Tuesday, Fandango gives us a story starter with which to weave a tale.
This week he’s given us

He could feel the beads of perspiration forming on his forehead as he slowly…

He looked through the curtains at the audience.
It was a mixed age group, teens to eighties and beyond.  Whadyaknow. Takes all sorts.
What had he let himself in for? The money was good though and no questions asked.

Luckily there was nobody there he knew. He breathed a sigh of relief at that. He could make an idiot of himself in front of strangers perhaps, but knew he’d never live it down with anyone familiar.

The Emcee announced him, the music started and he took to the stage.
He could feel the beads of perspiration forming on his forehead as he slowly began to peel off his jacket. Teasing, tormenting, pulsating to the rhythm, he closed his eyes and thought of The Full Monty. If they could do it, so could he.
Then the hysterical screams of the hen night started and he really began to enjoy himself .


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
