A scattering of words…

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge where the given word is Sashay.



With a flamboyant sashay, a regal wave and a flick of his hair, he entered the room. Heads turned and the crowd parted as he took a step forward.

Then he tottered and grabbed a table. Glasses and bottles clattered as it shook. He stood upright and regained his composure. He forced a smile, raised his head and set off again.

His ankle twisted, his knee gave way and he collapsed into the arms of a stranger. He looked up, smiled and winked. The startled stranger let go and scuttled off, dropping him to the floor.

He crawled to a chair and clambered aboard. Jaunty music burst forth and everyone began dancing. Everyone but him. He vowed never to wear high heels again.

    Too funny. I was not prepared for that ending. But I know the feeling. After shattering a leg in a fall, I got rid of all those high heeled shoes.

    I don’t know how anyone can walk in high heels. Fun tale, Keith.
