Say Cheese!


As he tried to compose a sonnet for his lady love, the overwhelming smell from the ripe cheese stopped him with pen raised. How could he think romantic thoughts when his supper invaded his nostrils? It was meant to invade his stomach, along with a crusty baguette and a glass or two of red wine!

These are my 55 words for Thursday Tales, thanks to their prompt of this picture by Daniel Hayman at Deviant Art. 
And of course, 55 is the magic number for Mr Knowitall's Friday Fifty Five - what luck!

  6. Perhaps the way to a man's heart is indeed through his stomach, but given enough food and wine, I'm afraid he'll have very little energy left for romance afterwards...LOL!

    Great take on the prompt!
