Devil Child


The prompt for this week's 100 word challenge is I really tried not to laugh. Which means I had no choice but to write about what happened after the Sunday service this week. 

My son hurried to the church hall to snaffle Oreos. His blond head bobbed angelically amid the faithful and I watched with pride as he beguiled a bevy of rapt ladies. Then I glimpsed the iPod. The ladies were posing for portraits and waiting expectantly for the results. I darted forward, but too late. With five finger taps he'd deprived the churchwarden of her hair and aged her twenty years. The ladies from the choir had gained ten stone apiece and grown moustaches. And the Vicar? I really tried not to laugh as I realised that for 13 years I've been sharing my pillows with this:

  4. Lol. Though I'm not sure the victims will be quite so amused...
    I like the angelic / little devil contrast. And the pic, of course :-)

    1. They're good sports, those ladies, although people did start backing off at speed.

  6. Hahaha. I hate these apps... goodness knows that it is bad enough these days looking at real photo pre-tampering. And has he given an image of you a similar treatment? You don't mention one...

    1. The Vicar gave me similar treatment, although before he discovered the bald app and the ugly app. Here's his handiwork http://adventuresofamiddle-agedmatron.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/ageing-gracefully.html

  7. Haha, remember out on a trip sitting in an air plain lounge with colleagues with an app like that. We were almost on the floor laughing ;-)

  8. My husband does this all the time. The app thingy I mean, not the look. Although I rather like the end product!

    1. You mean you think my husband is a handsome beast? Or you like yourself fat and aged?!

    1. It undermined my efforts to be a Woman of Dignity in the parish!

  11. I would imagine it is difficult being "a woman of dignity" with an 8 year old in the household. Most times, all you can do is laugh... with dignity. And as you've found, a nightly lager helps.

    1. Gosh, you seem to know me so well! You're right. And actually, between you and me, dignity is overrated. That Sunday was a hoot!
