Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Last week, I was cabbaged. At work. It was pure retaliation; after all, I started it. And I regret nothing.
Hang on; let me clarify.
To cabbage someone is to gift them with a cabbage against their will. Hide the cabbage in their belongings, place it lovingly on their desk, mail it to them in the post, whatever transfers ownership of said cabbage (or as many cabbages as you want) to the other person.
I got this prank from, where else, YouTube. Specifically, the BBC game show Would I Lie to You, this one with James Acaster’s archenemy. (It’s hilarious. Bookmark it to watch on bad days.)
Our office cabbage is still making the rounds. I’ve gifted it to our newbie. This poor cabbage now two weeks old and still hanging strong. Not bad for a $1.45 investment.
Now, on to this week’s writing prompt…
You’re late for your own wedding.
Write an excuse that ends with, “And the seagull stole my parking spot.”
Bonus points for including your bathtub, a chipmunk and the word bombast.
Bonus points are valid only for self esteem and bragging rights. Not valid for monetary prizes or any tangible goodie here, with any merchant or anywhere on the planet, real or imagined. Non-transferrable. Never expires.
