Evidence (more evidence) that Fran likes to ruin things.
Someone just challenged people on Facebook to write a 50 word story on the theme of 'Once upon a time' and I can't resist that kind of ruin-a-fairy-tale challenge, as regular followers will know.
I posted this one:
Once upon a time Red Riding Hood’s mother said, ‘Will you
take some cakes to Grandma?’ ‘Of course,’ said Red, but when Mother went to the
cupboard, she was very surprised to find she was clean out of flour. Red
lounged on her bed, smiling, her pillow higher than usual.
Now I feel inspired, here are a couple more:
Once upon a time, three little pigs made their mother pack
their knapsacks and left home to find their fortunes, despite Mummy Pig’s distressed
squeals. ‘Take no notice,’ said Pig One, who’d always lacked empathy. At
lunchtime, they opened their knapsacks. ‘Hey! Who packed sausage rolls in here?’
upon a time, there were three bears: Daddy Bear, Mummy Bear, and Paddington
Bear, who had got lost. ‘Apologies,’
said Paddington, ‘but would you mind awfully if I ate the marmalade sandwich I
have in my hat rather than this lumpy lukewarm oaty stuff?’ Daddy Bear grinned.
Paddington looked at the porridge and thought he knew EXACTLY what had caused the disappearance of Baby Bear
Anyone else fancy having a try at the 50 word fairy tale? Go on - you know you want to ....
