If you can't say something nice, at least make it funny!

Thanks for visiting Tinfoil Magnolia, a blog about my life, times, marriage, friendships and all the strange things that happen to me and with me. I hope you find something here that will encourage you, inspire you or at the least entertain you. And if it doesn't today, check back tomorrow because, my life? honestly...

The Porch

Today's post is my entry into this week's 100 Word Challengehosted by Velvet Verbosity. The 100 Word Challenge is an exercise in which we write exactly 100 words in response to the weekly prompt word. Click the link to read the other entries–good stuff over there! 
This week's prompt was "unseemly"

They sat side by side for who knows how long. The sun set and it got dark, the air was damp and cold with promises of early fall frost. Their silence spoke volumes each of them lost in thought, each processing their own grief. Alone. But together. Kate would have said something, but the thought of speaking was unseemly. There were no words of comfort, no words would return life to normal. Words complicated things. But the silence felt good. She gave herself to the motion of the swing, letting the hypnotic rhythm transport her to another time and  place.


  1. good entry...but where's the Applebees and booby glitter? it's in my entry? lol

    good job

  2. LOL, maybe I will do a second one. I just had the opportunity to work unseemly into my nano project, and thought I would pare down that scene for 100 words. Lazy writer. I will write something just for you.

    You win the bet by the way, I will mail a check.

  3. so many thoughts thrill me in this piece. :) love the images you have portrayed. Thanks, Ms. Marsha.
