Graffiti queen!

It's time for Friday Fictioneers again. This week's picture reminded me of something I did when I was eleven or twelve. I'll never live it down! Thanks Rochelle!

Picture: C E Ayr





I thought my parents would be pleased. After all, the side wall of our house was very plain.

One day they were going out. They said I was old enough to stay home alone.

I remembered Daddy had some cans of spray paint so I thought I’d brighten up the boring wall with a sea picture.

Just as I finished my mate Charlie appeared. He got the giggles and said my fish looked phallic. I assumed that was a complimentary word like fab!

Unfortunately, Daddy was very annoyed. He had to paint over it.

Even Banksy's had that problem!



My favourite Banksy, Girl with a Balloon, was originally  painted on a wall in a London backstreet. The council painted over it.
