I'M KEEPING MY OPTIONS OPEN



The Muse # 52


This week Shay at Fireblossom has set us a rather fascinating prompt.


My dear, you really are an obsessional exhibitionist, and you actually believe they will think we are doing a crossword?   

You are almost as delusional as me if you think they will buy that.

Stop saying, "Let's see  . . . One Across. Who is wearing the trousers? . . . and Six Down.  Man made material tights are made from?"

I told you right at the beginning this would get tongues wagging.  Am I right? . . . or am I right?

Just listen to them. It's so embarrassing!

The very idea of it . . . . indeed!!!

Ok . . . ok . . . ok . . . You talked me into it and I agreed to go along with it so I must bear the consequences, I suppose.


Well, as for me, I'm keeping my options open and I expect you to do the same.

Boy, my leg is numb, can we change legs to give mine a rest?
It's about time you had a turn.

What do you think they will make of it, honey?

I'm of two minds. 
On the one hand I think we should go to the pub and get legless, don't you?
 or
Staying here like this is a bit of a tease for them,
They are all thinking, "Is it a boy or is it a girl?" . . . 

or, well,

"The mind boggles!"

Shall we keep them guessing a little longer?

They are bound to be wrong whatever they decide, but listen, 

we can't stay like this for ever or neither of us will have a leg to stand on . . . 


. . . oh! and in the meantime, stop playing footsie with me!

I am a little late to the party. My Internet was down all over the Easter period.

Wishing all a belated Happy Easter.

    1. Thank you Carrie, It sort of developed like these things do. Can't say I have ever noticed anything like it on a park bench or bus stop seat, but you never know.
      Others have taken a much more sensible approach I see.
      Glad I exercised your chuckle muscle. :)
