Riding into the Sunset


  

       Mom thought I was exaggerating until I pointed him out at the mall riding his imaginary horse screeching “Whee!” as he galloped along, slapping his own ass. “Well, isn’t he quaint?” she giggled.




This post was written for the Trifecta writing prompt.


     My response had to be between 33 and 333 words.  Mine is exactly 33 words in length • You must use the 3rd definition of the given word, quaint,  in your post. • The word itself needs to be included in your response. • You may not use a variation of the word; it needs to be exactly as stated . • Only one entry per writer. Mine happens to be true story.

QUAINT (adjective) 1:  obsolete:  EXPERT, SKILLED 2a:  marked by skillful design <quaint with many a device in India ink — Herman Melville>   b:  marked by beauty or elegance 3a : unusual or different in character or appearance :  ODD   b : pleasingly or strikingly old-fashioned or unfamiliar <a quaint phrase>

  3. It sure is quaint :-). Its nice how using one word in a sentence in can be open for interpretation and how it allows each one to come up with their own versions :-)

    1. Martha, I am so pleased you got a giggle! That guy inspired quite a few giggles for me. He was in my social studies class in junior high and a complete riot. You never knew what he was going to do next. Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comments! ♥

    1. tulika, actually yes!! I went to school with this kid in junior high. You just never knew what he was going to do next. I don't think he was playing with a full deck if you catch my drift. Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥
