A Blooming Idiot?

Little Quake 
Saw a snake 
Her face turned white 
From fright 

OR ..

Ever since the quake
When the earth began to shake
The little one’s flowers

OR w/our bonus word:

Mommy, will I bloom
When I grow up?
Your pot is small
No room at all
But you’ll be a blooming
Idiot like me this fall!

Grandma's challenge is to use her intriguing photo and write a short story using 140 characters/words or less. She also offers a bonus word to make it just a little more interesting. Join us at succinctly yours and lets see how low you can go!!

Judy, you always do sooo good!
I like the third one best, I love the interplay here between the parent and child, "Mommy, will I bloom When I grow up?"

Our four year-old GD was wandering who she would marry when she grew up . I asked her if she had a boy friend, she said not. Then I asked her if she had friends who were boys. Wow! She has a lot. After a bit, I said, teasing, "I know who you will marry." End of conversation.

A couple of weeks later, after we had come home, the subject came up between her and her mother. The GD said, "Papa knows who I will marry." Kids. Even 'pot kids.'

Cool interpretation. And I love the way those pots were used. What a clever reuse.

No lack of inspiration this week, Judy. I enjoyed them all, but the last was my favorite. Guess I can relate to that "blooming idiot". :D
