Exercise 110705

She saw him long

way off and thought

how fine he looked,

like a piece of

art but without the

hefty price.  She wasn’t

to know if he

would prove fake at

first though as she

accepted his suave open

proposal. At least, to

her, he might be

just another scratch lottery

ticket. She paid up

and took him and

scratched him several times,

as you do. But

he was not the

jackpot that she hoped

he would be after

all. Nope. He resembled

one of those cheap

cartoons, good for a

day or two’s worth

of giggles but ultimately

it gets dumped like

old news. Plenty more

out there anyway.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
