A hundred words …

for Friday Fictioneers





Phillipa’s really clumsy. Pip the Trip we call her. You never know what she’ll have bruised, bandaged, or plastered next! 

Her latest mishap resulted in a damaged ankle; the latest additions to her accident accessory collection, a boot and crutches.

She’s ungainly on two legs, but four, two of which have minds of their own proved somewhat challenging!

Yesterday, a stray football landed at her feet. She kicked it with her boot, and it soared out of sight!

She landed on her derrière but it was worth it just to see the look on the player’s faces!

Well done Pip!

    Dear Keith,

    I fell on my keester wearing my boot. The bruise it left there was something to behold…(well not exactly for everyone to behold 😉 ) I hope Pip has a good sense of humor. Love the story and your reading as always.

    I could see some of the players starting to wear boots like that if it helped them kick like that. Great story.

      Funnily enough, I nearly ended the story like that but I couldn’t squeeze it in!

    Well done, Pip. And a well done bit of story telling, Keith. Kick on!

    I can relate to Pip. I’m a bit of a klutz. But, she just keeps going. Something to admire. Fun story! 🙂

    Thank you Keith . Even if Pip is clumsy or overindulgent with her feet, your story is certainly not with words. Lovely Froggy, as always.

    Keith, you’ve done it again 🙂 A wonderful story with the perfect froggie at the end 🙂

    Woohoo cool moves! But poor thing is certainly accident prone.

    Aw poor Pip, sounds like my mother in law! We call her the bionic woman!
