Sweet-scent wobbly squashed its ample floral upholstery on Woody, admired its precious Crystal, tapped the metal oblong:

     Seeking Partner

A big spice-scent wobbly arrived. Somewhat unvarnished. By nightfall, not even a fitted cover. Timber was left loose and dangling.

In the morning spice-scent wobbly parked its stripped base on Woody, tapped the metal oblong.

“Great new chair ordered. On its way!” it shouted. It unstuck itself from Woody, making a rude noise.

The next day, long after Woody was taken away, sweet-scent wobbly stared at Crystal.

A tear-shaped flaw had appeared, just below a diamond peak at the bowl’s sparkling edge.

  1. Jilly, I have to admit that I didn’t understand at first. I read it again, then looked at the comments, and things came together. I always appreciate your novel and creative takes on these prompts. Sometimes it just takes me a bit of study to “get” it 🙂

  2. I admit it is one of my more obscure takes! Thank you very much for your comments on my takes, I really enjoy the whole process very much-and sometimes I need to read comments too, it’s kind of part of the fun isn’t it.

    1. Ha ha, that’s clever and funny, Bjorn. She isn’t broken but she’s damaged, poor gal. I wanted to call them Woody Harrelson and Crystal Gale but I decided that would be going a bit too far. Best wishes, Jilly

  3. I cannot lie… I was totally lost. Then it became somewhat clearer through the comments. Then I re-read slowly (I was damned well gonna understand…) 😀
    You made my brain hurt this week but when all was said in done… I ended up enjoying!

    1. Dale, I do apologise for the pain in your brain! Next week I will be gentler with you, I promise. But glad you ended up enjoying the tale of my bowl with a soul. Best wishes, Jilly.
