Over at the Addicted to Purple blog, Rochelle has challenged us to write a story of ±100 words based on this photograph.
Not So Mellow Yellow
Word Count: 100
“Big Bird can kick Barney’s ass!”
Appropriate words for children playing with action figures. A dour prediction when it involves a loved one.
Glenda’s ex-husband, Harvey, surprised everyone when he showed up at the birthday party dressed as a purple dinosaur.
Surrounded by a dozen excited nine-year olds playing a game of musical chairs, her new boyfriend, Jeff, was the hit of the party in his large yellow bird costume.
Overwhelmed by bitter emotions and a sense of loss, Harvey could see in Jeff the thrill that comes with the discovery of a new love.
Glenda dialed 911.
I am joining the new Constructive Criticism sub-group with this post and look forward to the feedback.
