#WritePhoto – Crow

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

I thought I’d continue the adventures of Barbie and Ken.

“One for sorrow – two for joy. Two, two, come on I need two… Oh Jeez, Joey, this isn’t a good sign.” Ken was looking frantically around the park.
“What are you going on about bruv?” Joey took his shades off and checked the colour of his torso. It had been a long time since he’d attempted a tan the traditional way in Essex. Usually, he kept his Marbs colour topped up at the spray tan booth, but there was an unexpected heat wave, and he wasn’t about to lose the chance to get a bit of British sun too.
“I need to see another one. Can you find one? You know, one for sorrow, two for joy? That rhyme they say about those birds, you know, like that one over there?” Ken’s eyes darted around the trees fencing the green. ” I need all the help I can get with me and Barbie at the moment, and I can’t be seeing no ‘one for sorrow’, not today. I need joy. I need two. I need a sign!”
“Erm, Ken, mate, listen. I know what you mean, but before you get all stupid about this, that ain’t no magpie you’re looking at, anyway… it’s a crow!”
“Is it?! Oh God! What does that mean, when I see none?!”
Joey rolled his eyes at his henpecked pal, lowered his sunglasses and lay back to soak in a few more rays…

    Well as long as he doesn’t see three for a girl or four for a boy, I don’t think Essex could survive their offspring! 💜🌹

    Poor Ken. You know the Test Cricket series between Aust and England has just finished. The English supporters known as the balmy army come in significant numbers and think its a great thing to soak up the sun at the games. Many of them get sunburnt very badly, but they never learn that only madmen sunbake in our sun.

    Very funny is Ken, made me chuckle. You really nailed the prompt but I think the picture is a Minah bird… he could mimic Barbie with ease.
