Fin50: A Change in the Weather


A Change in the Weather is this month’s prompt from Bruce Gargoyle in his Fiction in Fifty (Fi50) meme.  You can join in this fun communal story-telling any time you like, and post any time during the month. Bruce posts his today, and you can drop in and link to your own.

A Change in the Weather

We got along well for most of the voyage; it was a shame to ruin it. But 7 months of just us two and I had permanent tooth marks in my tongue.

I could only offer a warning: “There’ll be a change in the weather before we make port, partner.”

  1. 'Toothmarks in the tongue' - yes.... definitely :)

    1. I need to put more of them there, and say less of what pops into my head. I'm getting cranky in my old age. ((sigh))

  2. Sounds like a bad case of cabin fever!

    1. LOL! I was maybe a bit inspired by a book I'd just finished (review will get there eventually) about a father and son sailing around Cape Horn.
