I know. I stole my name from the latest Hobbit movie (not the book). I couldn’t help myself.

Paradise Found

Crouched inside, Ron delighted in the rushing waves. The hut even provided a change of clothes. A final touch of a tin roof and he had his own seaside villa.

The door creaked open. A naked woman with dripping hair, covered in dewy, oily beads, stood before him.

“You’re wearing my clothes,” she said, making a strange clucking with her tongue.

Β “Who are you?”

“I’m Tauriel of Underneath the Sea. No relation to Ariel.”

She wiped a moist, gluey substance from his hair and licked it clean.

“Too many anchovies.”

She held out her arms, “Clothes please.”

Ron had found paradise.

      1. Whereas in your story, Tauriel “…wiped a moist, gluey substance from (Ron’s) hair and licked it clean.”

        In “There’s Something About Mary” – Cameron Diaz “…wiped a moist, gluey substance from (Ben Stiller’s) ear and used it as hair gel.”

        (Yeah. If it has to be explained, then it was probably a funnier response in my head than on-screen.)

    1. Those clam shell bras are uncomfortable. That must be why! Are you sure, nothing? I’ve been thinking that a lot lately, but then I write something. Even if I’m not entirely happy with it, I’ll still do it. You should go for it. Remember, technically you have until Tuesday. Thanks!

      1. Amy’s right. There have been a lot of weeks I looked at the photo and wondered how I was going to squeeze something funny out of it. It’s kind of like cooking supper – not every meal is a masterpiece, but you still gotta eat.

    1. There’s always these little details to work out. I did think of it. You can assume it’s not a dress! Perhaps some unisex clothing. In any case, it’s probably really wrinkled. Yes, there’s definitely something off about him.

  1. I was wondering about the clothes too and figured it must be some sort of unisex robe or something. πŸ™‚ This is really funny, Amy. Sounds like Ron is a happy guy (until he meets her mother, Ursula the Sea-Witch).

  2. Ron’s in for a wild ride here I think. I found it hard to rid myself of the image of licking gluey stuff off someone’s hair… that’s a stayer I think. Nice one Amy.
