Oops

clipart of a diamond ring

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 30 October 2021, costume.

Mrs Bump wore a fine costume jewel,
But I crushed it, while playing Tom Fool,
She let out a loud squeal,
For the diamond was real,
And she bashed in my head with a stool.

  1. yep, diamonds do not crush Mr. Bump but then your head probably doesn’t bash either. Some of us are just too
    hard-headed ๐Ÿ™‚ but I loved the verse gave me a good laugh for 8:40 a.m. as I sit here drinking my coffee!

    1. can’t start the day of a better way than laughing. I guess I love to laugh, heck I laugh at myself a lot. I am my
      greatest focal point. lol

                1. They can be good fun. People use different names for different word counts but i temnd to just label it all as “flash fiction”. Up to maybe 7 or 8 minutes.
                  The shorter ones are challenging, just because it is difficult to tell a story in just 100 words, say, but this one has no limits, so it really just boils down to discretion.
                  I’m not sure about this one. Who is she? Where is she going? Have to see if I can spin anything around that. It reminded me of the beautiful architecture you get close to the palace in London. The Mall or somewhere. But if you’re not UK, none of that will mean anything ๐Ÿ™‚
