inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 1 September 2021, ingrate.
The crying young infant was sore,
So mum pulled dummy out of the drawer,
but this nasty young ingrate,
Just made herself irate,
As she spat it out onto the floor.
Oh god, flashback time. We were on vacation in Arles (brilliant, van Gogh once lived there), in the south of France, pushing Baby Bump around, when this happened. We were trying to wean her off dummies/pacifiers but… any port in a storm.
In this town were nobody spoke any English, I was faced with this hunt for any pharmacy which might sell them, plus a crash course in Baby French once I got there. I never forgot sucette.
