Ninety-five words…

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Opera.




He’s a Pavarotti tribute act, calls himself Pavanotti! Dressed in a black suit with a cushion stuffed inside his shirt to make himself more portly, he belts out operatic arias, handkerchief in hand like the great man himself.

He loves a huge audience, so he always busks on a Saturday, the market’s busiest day.

Actually, he’s more of a niner than a tenor. His Nessun Dorma is a near disaster and his Traviata, a travesty but at least he tries.

I’m told he’s considering a change and becoming a rapper act called Kanya Guess. Yeezus! *



*I’m reliably informed (thanks Wiki) that’s the name of a certain person’s best-selling album!

        You typically write “laugh medicine” for me–and I’m very grateful!

    This is cute. It reminds me of the time my dad sang in the local college’s production of Carlo Minati’s The Medium. He couldn’t sing opera worth a darn, but they couldn’t find anyone else in our community or in the college’s student population to fill the role. So, what could they do? Thank you for sharing.
