#FOWC: Ludicrous Nonsense

For Fandango's One Word Challenge (FOWC)... Today's word is LUDICROUS and it immediately brought to mind this photo and the little story I wrote to go with it.
Silly nonsense, that's all it was. Making faces, taunting each other to see who would laugh first. They never paid attention to their mom in the background, admonishing them, “Your face is gonna freeze like that one day.” No, they knew everything. I mean after all, they were four years old now.

A year passed and the game had gotten a little more, well, mean is the only word. One of the boys had started to bully the littlest with his words and not so funny faces. Hurt, the little one went home crying to his elderly grandmother. She was from the old country and had different ways of dealing with things. She gave him some words to say the next time he felt threatened and promised him that would take care of the bully.

As expected, the bully started his attack but not expected, his victim uttered some nonsensical words and the bully stopped in his tracks, his silly expression frozen forever on his face.

  1. Wonderful. I wish all targets of bullying knew those words.
