Royal Pink!

This week I'm giving you a nonsensical peek at, my life that is. Poetry seemed beyond me today, who knows why, I sure don't! But I do have something to throw into the 55 pot and that's good, right? :)

Washing dishes, thinking about 55 words, I look up and catch a garish pink hue reflected in the window.

I'm still wearing the gaudy, hot pink crown adorned with fake jewels, my very own eight year old pretend princess, plonked on my head an hour ago.

By her hand, all is right in my day!


Her crown is sparkly emerald green and looks much better on her pretty head than mine does on me. But hey, I do look kinda cute!

If you've written a 55 word story, drop
in on G-Man, leave a comment and he
will pay you a visit.



  1. you and the image of the crown, washing dishes, brought a great big smile to my face. have a great weekend!

  2. Now that conjures up a marvellous image :-)

  16. I really liked this, Eaton. Reminds me of when my girls tried to dress me up in some of their dress-up clothes. That's a long time ago now - the youngest is now 20. You've got to enjoy them while you can!
