Ocean Rental


Ocean Rental

Her towel is spread out on the beach, the cat is on the stoop.
The housewife sips her coffee while her husband sips his soup.
There are advantages to houses built upon the sand.
You do not have to leave your porch to get expertly tanned.
You dine on tuna every day that never has been canned.
When fishermen jerk in their fish and they happen to land
upon your porch, you eat them either cooked or sushi-raw.
The fisherman cannot complain, you see it is the law.
And that is how you know what hubby shoves into his face
is probably not vichyssoise, but rather bouillabaisse

The Prompt: An Odd Trio—Today, you can write about whatever you what — but your post must include, in whatever role you see fit, a cat, a bowl of soup, and a beach towel.

      It was a fast one. My internet has been off most of the time for months so today I was in town and wrote it quickly at a local wifi spot and got it posted. I’m now superstitious about missing a day of posting. Know it will eventually happen, but it has become a daily “need.”

    Really cute, Judy 🙂 Yes, WP is all messed up. I used the pingback just as I always do, but it took me to a weird place. Hoping this dreadful year of prompt phlops is over soon.
