Tell it to the birds

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” ~ Douglas Adams

Idle-Chatter is the midweek word prompt over on GC and my Site Weekly Prompts and was written by GC.

Having had something of a time-challenged week I had nothing of my own planned for this prompt. This morning I remembered a previous post of mine, a conversation (The Flight Path) that took place in the autumn of 2017 in response to a WP daily prompt, and after copying and giving it a new title I think it fits the bill (or beak) perfectly for Idle Chatter.

“Where are you going?” asked the owl peering down.

“Wherever the flight path leads,” came the answer.

“It took you a long time to get here,” said the owl peering down.

“There was a bump in the road,” came the answer.

“A bump in the road!” exclaimed the owl peering down.

“I was side-tracked for a while,” came the answer.

“So how did you get here?” asked the owl peering down.

“I discovered my wings,” came the answer.coloured in bird

“And twit twoo, who are you?” asked the owl.

 “WordPress sent me, I’m the fraud!” answered the penguin.

      1. No, not late yet Sue, it’s 8.45pm.
        Although I’m very tired, being back working a few days a week, is proving to be a harder process than what I thought it would be ….

      2. I’m under Doctors orders, not to overdo it…. Plenty of breaks, and days off, … I’m going ok…. but , yes, I have to look after myself, and know my limits

    Hah! If it weren’t for idle chatter, most of us would never speak to anyone! It’s truly part of what makes the world go ’round….for better or worse

    1. Hi Debbie, I’m glad you liked this one. A couple of years ago when I originally wrote this one I added the penguin because I was stumped for the challenge ‘Fraud’. I thought it added a fun element to the challenge.

      I’ve been very short of time this week and didn’t have anything for this week’s word prompt, I tried to re-blog but for some odd reason it wouldn’t work, so I copied instead. I’m so pleased you liked it and I thank you for your kind comments. 🙂
