Keep out of reach from children, the label read.
It looked tasty, though. Smooth, rich, colored purple.
“Divine… “, Mabel sighed.
She had already consumed four hamburgers with extra fries.
“But I had it with diet-coke… “, she licked her lips while uncapping the container. It smelled a bit strange, fruity but tangier than sweet.
“I deserve a desert… “, Mabel scooped the content with porky fingers and stuffed her face.
She tried chewing but her mouth filled with pink froth and her face turned had turned puce as her unbearably slender daughter Maggie-Mae entered.
“Ma… have you devoured all my shampoo… again?“
I focused on the text in the foreground rather than ice-cream at first, and somehow this gave me the idea for this weird story, which maybe could be seen as tragi-comic… poor obese illiterate Mabel.
Rochelle pulls us all into this weird weekly adventure of writing a story in a hundred words every week, and if you click my fat frog you will find more stories.
Oh dear..Ma needs constant supervision.
Or learning to read…
I smiled, but then again, yesterday I saw some bath bombs, shaped and the size of sweets.
Oh I know that…
That last word! Funny as fiction!
Keep out of reach of adults too
oh oh. bubble bubble … 😉
Had an element of Roald Dahl to it. Nice one 🙂
it seems that her obsession with food has become unmanageable. it’s time for her to seek professional help.
Don’t you just love it when people disguise their beauty products as tasty snacks… 🙂
Haha fat shaming… some shampoo smells good enough to eat. So I can’t hold it against her.
I can’t criticise others for mistakes like that. My imagination has been known to get the better of me with drastic consequences. I felt for her.
At least she drank a Diet Coke. That reasoning is right up there with “I ate all the chocolate chip cookies so they wouldn’t be around to tempt me.” Good one.
I like the neat inversion, where you start with “Keep out of reach from children” and conclude that it’s mom who has eaten her daughter’s shampoo. Mind you, if the daughter is “unbearably slender”, her relationship with food is probably as unhealthy as her mother’s.
Mum used to threaten to wash our mouths out with soap when we said something inappropriate!
She should stick to eating toothpaste! Nice one.
Who knows the shampoo might be low in calories. 🙂
That’s a good one, B! She might know Little Sally.
I love your chubby frog 🙂 Good story, too–Mabel could use some supervision, or she’s going to kill herself without the aid of ay poison.
A very sad situation for mother and daughter. I love the round frog, though! =)

Hahaha oh dear, better read the labels!
I really did laugh out loud Bjorn. Mom got worse and worse and worse.
Would anti- dandruff shampoo be worse ?
Ha! Ha! Nice one, sort of reminded me of a prank we played in school.
