Underpants - Three Word Wednesday

I've been trying hard to finish off a children's book I've written, so haven't dared to venture on my blog as I know I'll be on it for hours!
I know I must have missed so many wonderful posts by everyone, but as soon as I have finished, I'll get busy visiting again :o)

I just had a look at 3WW and this came immediately to mind, so I thought I'd allow myself just this one before I get writing again!


Underpants
Incensed, she snatched up his underpants off the bathroom floor. They were damp from where he'd 'avoided' the mat as usual after his bath and trailed wet all around the floor. As she threw them into the washing basket, she shuddered, shaking her hand. "Uugh... and I wondered why his mates called him skid-mark!"


 Three Word Wednesday where you write something using the three prompt words.   This week's words are ... Damp, Incensed and Skid.

That was a truly nasty all-too-frequent little domestic moment, neatly described!

Linda said...

I read your post title and then the three words you were supposed to use, and I knew exactly where that paragraph was going. :) Nicely done.

The damp in the air made me crazy! Without a reason I was incensed at the taxi driver, my instinct told me that I should give him a slap on the cheek, so I did. This could explain the skid-mark on the freeway.....

Deborah said...

Deborah, I am so excited to hear you have been finishing off your children's book. That is brilliant news. I am so keen to hear more and I just know you will do well with it.

Sadly, the underpants scenario is one I have come across on occasion. Oh, the hunanity.....
