Birthday - Saturday Centus Week 21

Week 21 of Saturday Centus
this weeks prompt is to use up to 100 words
(not including the prompt) using the line . . .
He never dreamed when he blew out the candles on his cake

B I R T H D A Y
He never dreamed when he blew out the candles on his cake the fiasco that would ensue! If he hadn't been wearing the joke teeth and false beard combo, then it could all have been avoided, (it was easy to realise that in hindsight). He had taken a big breath and as he blew, the teeth shot out and landed slap bang in the middle of Marjorie's much slaved over sherry trifle. He then leaned in to retrieve them and the beard caught fire! Well you can imagine the scene... and Polly did the only thing she could and liberally doused him in lemonade as Marjorie valiantly tried to resurrect the trifle.

(exactly 100 words) .

I love slapstick, and this just cracked me out. I'm going to have a vision of those teeth landing in the trifle stuck in my head for DAYS! Loved this, great use of the prompt. Kat

Next year, I bet he gets Polident as a gift to hold in any other teeth that may be flying out!

Very funny stuff!
