Succinctly Yours: eerie

Every week, a picture is posted on the blog, Grandma's Goulash, to prompt us to write a short (140 words) or short-short story (140 characters including spaces and punctuation) about it.
If we can use the word of the week, it's up to us, there aren't any extra points. The word is selected by Grandma's daughter before seeing the picture. The word this week is eerie, appropriately enough.

You have a white pumpkin for a head, and I have a plastic balloon. And you have bones, but I don't. Isn't it eerie how we eat the same food?

140 characters, including punctuation and spaces.

Good take on the prompt. I am wondering how they manage to eat at all.

Shucks, Kay. All the time I had thought we were what we ate!

I love your idea of the white pumkin head vs. the balloon head conflict. She seems pretty old to just be finding our the differences of the sexes. There may other differences of which she is not aware.

Eerie indeed. Great fun.

Gemma Wiseman said...

A very pertinent question indeed! Visible and invisible bones in a showdown over food!

Grandma's Goulash said...

You've managed to put both humor and depth in this one, Kay. Excellent.

Leslie said...

hahaha, that's eerie, all right!

Well. . .at least they aren't allowing their differences to separate them! Nice job pointing out that they see their differences; all I saw were the similarities. Good MF.
