100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#55

August 22, 2012

The buying and choosing of suitable greeting cards is difficult and I could write a post about the issues they pose.  The consideration required when buying any sort of card from a ‘sorry for your loss’ to ‘congratulations for reaching 100’ is troublesome.   

And then to add the element of humour is doubly difficult; you suggest PG; and I am inclined to agree.  I always buy my baby brother of 52 years a funny card.  Since his children were tiny I was always careful that the card could stand on the mantelpiece without being hidden by the clock!

So I think I am going to go with … ‘clean,’ ‘tried and tested’ (and failed in my case) and ‘the oldies are always the best!’ (or not) !

‘How many times have I told you; can wear my wig, necklace and glasses but don’t stick out your tongue it is not attractive.

Or

‘Does my bum look big in this?’

Or

‘I have told you before blue and green should never been seen’

I think I will not give up my day job yet!

    Wonderful! I was beginning to think it must have been the way I described the prompt but you got it!! They are all priceless & quite suitable for my son’s card!!

      It was difficult … I don’t do the creative stuff (I wish I could) so I have to put myself there !

    the inside card comments you wrote are “purr-fect.” Randy

    The warning of an unattractive tongue, the fear of a big behind and some good fashion advice all wok well for the prompt. As least for the second, onlookers would be paying more attention to the outfit than whether a bum was too big. :)
