    LOL an absolute gem, Michael 😀

  2. Mandy says:

    Hahaha😂😂😂 now I’m like Wild Child, Pat, laughing and snorting lol!

  3. wildchild47 says:

    Roflmao – omg – you had me right from the start Michael, with your wit and sharp tongue translating onto the page – what humour! And I absolutely love this “you.” It’s so bloody brilliant that I’d have to claim, as a fictional character of course, to declare open and grand amorous love of the “you you.” Or should that be “yo-yo?” or perhaps “Ewe Ewe” – scoundrel and black sheep! 😉

    Thank you so much for playing along with the writing prompt – I hope you had a good time with it – I certainly am, reading 😀

    • Michael says:

      Hello Pat…you did say and I quoye: “”Re-define yourself however you wish – feeling like exploring your carefully hidden silly side? “”
      So I did and I’m glad you and others have had a good laugh…..I have to say the prompt threw me for a while and what you see is my second attempt at it….the absurd the better I think…maybe I should have had a resume like this when I was working…lol….and as for “”to declare open and grand amorous love of the “you you.” “”I am most flattered as is my persona……have a great day…

      • wildchild47 says:

        Absolutely right on, I did say “silly” and it’s ALL good by me 😀

        Well Michael – all of you – in all your forms and characters – is one 1000% lovable 🙂

        Have a great week 🙂

      • Michael says:

        Isn’t fantasy land such a fun place Pat…lol….my words are lovable not so sure about the guy pushing the keys, he’s ok…..the week looks good, so far but it is only Monday down here….

      • wildchild47 says:

        the guy pushing the keys is awesome 🙂

        well, it’s Sunday evening here – and rainy cool – has been all day, but the birds are still singing away – so one day at a time – who knows where the adventures of the week can lead?

      • Michael says:

        Exactly one just never knows….hope yours are fun as I hope mine are…

      • wildchild47 says:

        hope so …. we shall wait and see 🙂

      • Michael says:
