FUN MONDAY - A VISIT BY MY MOTHER IN LAW
Mamma Wizdom asks for a "Wordzzle". I couldn't find the meaning of this word neither in my dictionary nor in Wikipedia but apparently our job is to write a story (true or made-up), poem, song, letter... whatever strikes us ABOUT one of the three themes. We must INCLUDE all 10 words. Wild cards (????) words may be used in addition to or in place of the main 10 words.
OK I choose the visit to the Mother in Law as Bed(time) stories belong to the past and bringing up teenagers too.
A visit by my Mother in law
The words: Ostrich, goosebumps, magazines, soup, cats, lethargic, noodles, tequila, doorknob, biscuit
My mother in law was an imposing woman ! she was very tall grey haired and had a big bossom. She could easily put a glass of wine on it without any problem. Never a cup of coffee, that's for sure. She always wore a big pink hat, even inside the house, with ostrich plumes who hang down to her nose. Every 5 seconds she blow them up and sneezed quite often. This was especially irritating when she spoke or when she ate her noodle soup. She spat the noodles out all over the table. Looking at her eating gave me goosebumps. Her cats were sitting around her and waited for some chicken pieces which were swimming in the soup. The oldest cat looked quite lethargic but woke up when she smelled chicken.
In a corner lay a stack of magazines which mother (in law) wanted to read after her lunch. When she had finished her meatballs and tomatoe sauce was all around her mouth, she went to the kitchen to pick up some biscuits and a bottle of tequila. She loved tequila very much and had always a couple of glasses in the afternoon. When she had to go to the bathroom, she usually was so nicely filled up with tequila, that she missed the doorknob and had to try several times until she could open the door.
I always was happy when I could go home and wondered if she would wear her ostrich feather hat in her bed at night !
