A 50-Word Story a Day Keeps the Boredom Away #41 (Republished)

Painting of a tempest

As the tempest stirred the foaming sea, the sailors decided to throw overboard all the heavy items that overloaded their ship. They were eagerly about their business when a distinguished lady brought them her husband and handed him to them.

‘Gentlemen,’ she said, ‘he is an intolerable weight on me.’

  1. This was a great one Vincent – perfect example of how you don’t need that many words to say a great deal. Sorry I’ve been off the map, but I’ve had a very unexpected few months. I am back now – your faithful follower 😉

      1. The Oxonian is well. As for making friends with Oliver, I’m afraid I can’t take a look at the whole book because it’s unfair to do so when I have clients who pay me for my editorial work. But how about I take a look at the first 2,000 words? A mini friendship!

  2. “As the tempest stirred the foaming sea…” A lovely way with words you have, sweet hatted boy.

    Again, I’m sensing a theme…

    Also, I’m up to plane #143! Perhaps I should be looking at air plane tickets.
