Silly storytime!


For Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Confetti.





It was somewhat windy as the happy couple left the church so the groom held onto his bride’s hand extra tightly for fear she might fly away as her wedding gown began to balloon! 

The guests started flinging confetti into the air, flying up and down, round and round whilst the church’s groundsman, broom in hand, looked on wearing a far from happy expression.

“It’s confetti, not spaghetti” shouted one onlooker as some flew into the groom’s mouth, setting off a round of poor puns and waggish wisecracks.

Such was the jollity that no one realised the hapless groom was choking, except that is for his newly acquired wife who was clearly an expert in the Heinrich manoeuvre. 

“Save that for tonight” shouted some guy, unaware of the seriousness of the situation as bridey began pumping her beau.

Fortunately, he lived to tell the tale, something he does whenever given the opportunity!




Thanks to Denise at GirlieOnTheEdge for hosting.

    This made me laugh, Keith, thinking of how it would have happened in my hands!
    Murder by confetti, hmm?

    Frightening story with a happy ending! Their wedding day story definitely qualifies for multiple re-telling, lol

    It would be one heck of a story, and I can’t imagine him ever not telling it. Great six!

      Thanks so much. He’ll no doubt be telling it to his great-grandchildren one day!

    Yes, I know it’s fiction, but I can’t help thinking of you as the person telling the story time after time! I’m sure such a good story-teller as you are would add excellent embroidery to each telling to make it new. A fun story, Keith.

      Jenne, I can’t thank you enough for your kind words. I’m sometimes embarrassed by the simplicity of my stories in comparison to others’ deep and meaningful prices!

    I’m with Jenne on this one. That’s what makes the tale believable!
    Another joyeous Six!

    Me too (with Jenne). A hallmark of a master storyteller.
    And , ahem…someone I know very well may have thrown sugared almonds instead of the traditional stuff…annoying the groom with each bullseye.
