Monday madness …

for Sadje’s What Do You See? picture prompt.



Bob the Blob’s idea of a balanced diet was to hold a cream cake in each hand. He once did the seafood diet, you know the one, when you see food you eat it. As for the fourteen-day diet, he finished it after fourteen hours!

A couple of months ago he got into a lift, and it took him down when he pressed the up button. That’s when he knew it was time to do something about it, and my goodness, Bob did!

The trouble was, he became so skinny he looked like a bag of bones! I swear when he walked quickly you could hear them rattling!  

When he slipped through a grating in the pavement and landed splash-bang in a filthy sewer, he realised he’d taken the dieting thing a bit too far. Time to find the middle ground! 

Bless Bob, he’s worked at it really hard, and on a scale of a hundred, I’d say he’s about ninety-nine now – and I don’t mean grams or kilograms!

    Oh poor Bob. It’s one trial after another. Loved your story Keith. Thanks a lot for joining in.

    Not nice to make me laugh when I have a cup of coffee in my hand. 😦

    Bob and I use the same balanced diets it seems! Great story, Keith.
