Bibendum

„Take that, fiend! “ Dandelion brandishes his sword and slashes at the shape in front of him until it crumples into a heap of rubber and metal.

„You need to look before you strike, Dan. Mab will be furious if she hears about it.“ Thistle says.

„But I thought it was a troll. I wanted to protect the human realm…“

„It was a Michelin Man. Just some tires wired together. Totally harmless.“

„Drat! Can‘t we put it back together? There’s even a picture, look.“

„We? Nah. Not worth the effort.“

„But Mab…“

„I won’t tell her if you don’t.“

„Deal.“

I didn’t think I could make it this week, my mind went blank when I looked at the picture.

    1. Thank you Dale. I wish I could take pictures like that, but I’m a rather mediocre to poor photographer. I lack ‘the eye’. Pixabay is a treasure chest of great free pictures though with some outstanding photographers.
      And poor little rubber man indeed. 🙂

    1. Thank you Rochelle. I don’t want to let me be overwhelmed by life stuff again and stop participating. Once I take a break, it’s difficult to get back into it, and FF is too enjoyable to let it go.
