This month Elephants Child is providing the prompts. You can find her in my sidebar. This week the words are:
game, bag, torch, queen, fit, pardon
beach, shadow, orb, chilly, collision, desperate.
"Pardon me, excuse me, sorry, oops." Jarid squeezed his way down the bus aisle. His bag and old mag light torch bumped and banged against each and every seat on his way out. He was desperate to get to the beach and start his Florida vacation far away from chilly South Western Ontario.
The collision his old VW had been involved in nearly put an end to his plans. He had been 'fit to be tied' until he realised he could bus it to Florida. It was actually cheaper than driving. The shadow of misery lifted and his good spirits returned.
The trip down South had been a hoot. Old Mrs Paxton had kept them all amused with her collection of travelling games. She was truly the 'Queen of the Bus'. She rolled her old blue orbs at him and laughed when he addressed her as Her Ladyship.
"Now Jared, lad, I wonder if you could do an old lady a favour?"
