Two hundred words …

for Sunday Photo Fiction

llllllllllllllllllllllI’m so tired. I wish I could close my eyes but that’s never going to happen.  At least being marble means the seagull poo doesn’t show unlike that poor granite Goddess over there.  Looks like she’s wearing a white wig!

Here comes another lot.  A straggling crocodile of tourists trying to keep up with their flag-waving guide.

“Over here, this way, that way, stop. Gather round the statue please”.

Some are listening intently, others, chatting among themselves. 

Next up, a shuffling group of Japanese folk stopping every few seconds to take another photograph. Bus, snap, church, snap, taxi, snap, pavement, snap, pigeon, snap, me, snap.

Now a gaggle of schoolgirls, more interested in that bunch of bored boys than they are in me.

Twenty sensibly dressed ladies of a certain age are staring up at me whilst listening  to their guide.  “How interesting, I say, goodness me, well I never, isn’t that fascinating Doris”.

Actually, Doris seems more interested in my nether regions. Don’t you dare touch you little minx!

Their weary hostess is wandering between them now, hoping to gather a little extra cash.

And now she’s off to collect the next band of followers.  See you later darlin’.

    Sorry for neglecting your posts all this while . My loss for they always bring a smile . ( now is that a rhyme or what although unwittingly) . Though my strongest wish is never to be a statue with birds shitting over me !

      I’m as guilty as you! Like you, I can think of little worse! Thanks so much Unishta

    This was a great take on it, and I loved that you added to the visual of the statue with a full body. Favorite line, “Actually, Doris seems more interested in my nether regions. Don’t you dare touch you little minx!”
