Succinctly yours: bluster

Photo provided as prompt
Oh, yeah? If you think I bluster, Buster, wait until you hear me nag, you old nag!

Succinctly Yours
the weekly meme at the Grandma's Goulash blog, when Grandma chooses a photo, then her daughter chooses a word of the week without seeing the photo.
Writer-bloggers are invited to write a 140-word short story about the photo, or a mini-story using 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation. 140 is the maximum, we can use fewer words or characters if we like. We can choose for ourselves whether or not we want to include the word of the week, which, this week, is "bluster".
Above is my submission of 82 characters, including spaces, punctuation, and the word of the week.

Hi there, Kay!!
Things are finally slowing down around here and I'm starting to get back to my blog writing little by little.
All is good here in our new home in Reno and my health continues to improve!

One of my little friends from back when I was a smitch, had an Uncle "Bluster" (I think his real name was "Dick," which was a fitting tribute, as well), who such a big ol' bully. Loud, too. I haven't though of him in years, that is not until I read your "straight from the horse's mouth" SY take. Guess what else? Uncle Bluster did actually resemble a horse, too. Yeah, the back end! (<--in sooo many ways. LOL!)

Hi Kay, brilliant! I 've never thought to use "bluster" in that context. Only always thought of it as a blustering wind or blustering cold weather. Now I know why it's said: you're never too old to learn. Ha-ha. Please give Lindy the biggest hug from me, (you get it first and pass it on) Blessings Jo

Quite clever, quite funny and quite succinct. In short, I loved it.

Pooch said...

Which is more irritating...blustering or nagging? I think it's a toss up! Better yet, do neither, just neigh!
