Fruit Stack

“Sally! I’m going to paddle your bare bottom if you don’t play fair.”
Little Sally rolled her eyes, which put Mother into even more of a tizzy.
“Don’t you put on an air with me, Sally, give Bobby back that pear right now.”
Bobby and Little Sally had been playing Fruit Stack when Mother saw her sneak one of Bobby’s game pieces.
Little Sally muttered something under her breath like “Such a flair for the dramatic, don’t be so square.”
Bobby heard her and his eyes bugged out big time.
Mother heard her too. “Fruit Stack is over, young lady!!!”

I am not a poet  rhymer, but her words caught my attention, so I hope that Sarah does not mind if I used her words to write a story instead.

  1. Reminds me of playing as a child 😊 thanks for joining us for the Saturday Mix

    1. Thanks for the invitation, Sarah.

  2. OOh… I think you need to contact a game company and pitch this new game. Sounds better than some of the ones I’ve seen for the younger set. Maybe there are four colors of a variety of fruits and well of course the one who knocks the stack down… looses. Unless Mother nixes the game due to cheating!

    1. What a marvelous idea! The companion game could be Vegetable Stack, and Little Sally would no doubt be coping the celery.

      1. Sounds like Little Sally needs some reigning in? 😉
