Simply 6 Minutes

Any idea what this is?
Nope, but I hear they communicate far distances with it.
Do you think he’d miss it?
Not really, he’s intent on taking a picture of his girlfriend.
OK then, give me pointers. You’re the one with the light fingers.
Yeah, but I’m in the wrong place, so you’ll have to do it.
Is it better to pinch or grab?
If you don’t want him to notice, lightly pinch and gently pull but if you feel the slightest resistance, desist and retreat.
OK……….. I’m going for it…………………

The scream was deafening.
‘LOOK OUT!’ she yelled.
Seb turned on his heel almost dropping the camera in the process.
‘Where did they come from?’
The two wrongdoers tried to look an innocent still life, but they’d been sussed.
Seb raised his camera and took another shot.
‘Much more interesting!’ he said, and Sally playfully punched him on the arm.

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.
