Hangin’ Around – FF & CCC #110

This is a rarity.  Me, combining two prompts.  But both pictures came in on the same day. And while I couldn’t think of what to write for Rochelle’s Friday Fictioneers nor for Crispina’s Crimson’s Creative Challenge, last night a thought came to me using both! Why not?  Plus, I added one of my own, for story’s sake.  And double plus, it’s Mick’s birthday today and he would have been 57 and he loved silly fun.  And I apologize to both of you for going over the 100 and 150 limits.  For that reason, I’m not adding my links.  No one can give me hell.

Who hung you up like Jesus on a cross, Elf?  And for goodness sakes, why?

Oh, ahh… gee. Now that you mention it… That wasn’t the look we were going for, I assure you. It’s so I don’t fall down.  And I’m up here so I can see the Christmas lights!

Well you look bloody ridiculous. And it’s daylight.

Have you looked at yourself, Scarecrow?  You’re kinda in the same position as I am but way down there.  And seriously, couldn’t you have added something bright to wear? You’re positively drab! And darkness is coming, my friend.

It’s not exactly as if I chose my outfit, yanno!  Besides, I’m actually working here.  Who has time to hang around and look at lights when there are birds to scare away? 

Dude. You have got to stop being so serious.  Let your hair down… err… you know what I mean. All work and no play makes for a boring life.

It IS getting dark… I’ll be off duty, soon.  What can you see?  Is it worth it?

Ooooohhhh… sooo pretty… We gotta find someone to jack you up!

  1. Awww… This was fun! 🙂 And … yeah, I did think about the ‘cross factor’ of the elf, and then decided to completely ignore it and go Elfie’s way … but the juxtaposition of the two prompts is brilliant! 🙂 They both ARE kinda’ tied up in a similar … um … (was gonna say fashion, but the elf would be furious, and you do NOT want to see a furious elf…) posture … 😉

  2. Dear Dale,

    Shaking my head and laughing. Quite the unlikely conversation. Guess you could say they’re all trussed up with nowhere to go. Happy birthday to Mick. A life to be celebrated.

    Shalom and lotsa party-ready hugs,

    • Dear Rochelle,

      Glad you are laughing. It was my intention. Quite the unlikely, you say? Come now! And yeah… All trussed up and nowhere to go but into my imagination! Thank you. We raise our glasses to him.

      Shalom and Lotsa friendly love.

  3. At this time of year you are allowed a little indulgence. I liked the banter between Ellie and Scarecrow, both having a dig at what each other is wearing as if it were a fashion show. Typical costume geeks.

    • So glad you do, Jan. I was kinda stuck on Wednesday. Didn’t think I’d play at all… and then I realised they were both, er… strung up the same way 😉

    You did a mashup! And you hit a home run with this double shot at that.

    A Scare-Mas surprise to get that elf off its shelf whilst at the same time tossing in some crow (but who’s counting? See what I did there?) for good measure. I like it, no I love it, and I want more of it! And yes I know it’s a song, but it works. 😉
