The 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups is back!

I just love these challenges. Thank you to Julia at who organises these, and everyone who takes part. Why don’t you have a go – you can find out more at http://juliasplace.org.uk/100wcgu/brexit-the-bayeux-tapestry/

The  theme this week is …and just when Harold thought it couldn’t get any worse…

So here’s my take on it …

Zoe held out her chubby little hand for Harold to admire the crushed daisy in her fist. Drooping. Sad. “Mmm, pretty. But don’t eat it.” He brushed away a couple of petals from her lips. “Nana will be back soon, and we’ll have lunch.”

Five minutes later, she had a handful of dirt to show him, smears around her chin. “Not in your mouth, darling. Urgh, dirty.”

A couple more minutes. Zoe held out her hand again. And just when Harold thought it couldn’t get any worse, she opened her fist. “Oh, a worm. Lovely.”

She grinned, mouth full.

“Ah. Half a worm.”

  2. Fabulous take on the prompt Kim! Made me laugh out loud! You can see the scene can’t you. Great to be back together again. Do let me know if you ever fancy setting the prompt as a guest poster!

  3. Reminds me of when I was about 5 and I had always been taught to keep my hands clean and eat nothing that dropped on the ground. One day I decided I needed to be brave and adventurous and try eating something that had dropped on the ground — like a lot of other kids did. So I took a piece of hard candy out of my mouth, threw it into our dirt and cinder drive-way, then picked it up and stuck it back in my mouth. I felt like an adventurer.
