It's 3 Word Wednesday where this week's prompty words are Fleshy, Clean and Pierce
I bought a selection of fruit the other day. I thought it was time I improved my diet. I found some varieties I’d never tried before. I was having a coffee and a big sticky bun in the superstore cafe to celebrate my new diet regime when in walked my mate Johnny. He plonked himself down beside me.
“Watcha’ got there Rosey P?” he asked. Well, I emptied the bits of fruit on the table and he looked at them with a mixture of amusement and be-musement!
“You’ve got a prickly pear” he said with a silly grin on his face. “I beg your pardon?” I said. Cheeky devil! Anyway he picked it up and yelped as the thorns jabbed his fingers! I had to laugh. Served him right for being crude.
Then I showed him my melons. (Now now, don’t you start, you know what I mean!) They looked really plump and fleshy but a bit grubby so I gave one a quick clean with a serviette. Then I pierced it with a knife and it squirted pink juice straight into Johnny’s eye! Laugh? I nearly had an accident!
Anyway, what do you call a square green fruit? An orange in disguise! Bye bye.
