Overcoming her embarrassment, the camera asked the iphone,

“Can you please take a picture of me? I don’t have selfie option.”

iphone duly obliged saying “Anytime for you,Granny!”

“Is my milkshake ready?” ,yelled my husband from the living room.

Oops! While I was engrossed taking pictures of the pumpkin in every possible angle, I totally forgot about preparing the healthy oats-pumpkin milkshake that I had coaxed my husband into drinking instead of his morning coffee, half an hour ago!

All because of a SUV#Flash Fiction(FFfAW)#Humor

“So much work ahead!”, muttered Reema as she made several trips to the house carrying armful of groceries from the SUV every time. Five years back Reema, her husband, and her two adorable children lived in a rented two bedroom  apartment. That year they sold their car and bought a new SUV. Soon, carpooling for children’s soccer and swimming classes brought new friends. Weekend get-togethers started. When their apartment became too small to accommodate all their guests, they bought a single family home. Parties increased, expenses increased and vacations decreased. Reema became busy with shopping groceries, hosting parties, and maintaining the huge house. Though she enjoyed spending time with friends, she craved for some free time which she rarely got these days. “Life was much simpler back then”, she sighed as she recollected her blissful afternoons relaxing on the couch a few years ago.

Captain America was searching for his shield all over the place.

Wonder woman had chocolate smeared all over her face.

Superman needed a diaper change.

Spiderman needed some pocket change.

While I was helping these adorable superheroes, Batman tugged my sleeve asking “Can you please tie my shoe lace?”

Fall in the park#Humor#Limerick

We went for a stroll in the park to enjoy fall

Out of nowhere came a speeding ball

I stooped down and yelled ‘Duck!’

He looked around searching for a duck.

Alas! I couldn’t stop his fall.


The speciality of the above limerick is it uses homonyms . (‘duck’ and ‘fall’) . Homonyms are words with multiple meanings.

That’s how a spooky story started #3linetales

“The empty swing, the shadow of someone approaching the swing and a white ghost like figure at the far end of the chairs,  – Definitely, it’s a spooky swing!”, gasped his friend  seeing the photo.

The photographer amused with this inference immediately uploaded the photo on Facebook with the title ‘Spooky Swing’ , added the explanation provided by his friend , and that post, which was meant to be a prank , went viral  as a ‘Paranormal sighting’ within few minutes !

“Oh! This is how spooky stories start!”, thought the photographer, who alone knew the truth that the girl who was supposed to sit on the swing left to play with her friends exactly at the moment he clicked the camera.!

My love for pizza #limerick

 

pizza-814044_640

 

As I savor  a slice of pizza with soft melted cheese

my diet plan goes on a freeze; my friends tease

Fitting into my jeans would be a tight squeeze,

But my love for pizza will never cease.

Just one slice wouldn’t appease; I say “One more slice, please”.
