Saturday Centus

Wow, I've been a crappy blogger this week. Only two posts. That's pretty weak. A weak week.

And now I'm reaching for lame puns.

Sigh.

Saturday Centus celebrates one year of writing prompts today. I haven't been along for the whole ride, but I've enjoyed the parts I've been around for. So....

As Emily received her anniversary gift from George, she remembered his proposal, in the empty big top after the show. And the jugglers and stilt walkers and lion tamers who stood up for them at the wedding. Their vows being interrupted by the elephants. The popcorn and cotton candy at the reception.

She made a sound like "oomph". Then she opened her eyes and, through the chocolate-cream covering her face, saw her smiling husband. Emily laughed as she picked up the coconut-cream pie, her gift for him. Although the traditional gift for a first anniversary was paper, this was life with a circus clown.

The pie in the face picture totally made me laugh. Loudly.

And considerings it's 2 am here and we have house guests in the next room I'm hoping I didn't wake them up!

I'm off to discover your attraction to pie in the face!

I like pie, too. But usually on a fork inserted into my mouth!

Cute twist with this prompt.

Well, at least you can show them if they ask you today what was so funny in the middle of the night! Thanks!
