Sneaking downstairs she opened the fridge and gazed at the verdant, healthy food.

“Damn this diet” she whispered.

Then, spying a wedge of Cheese she grabbed it and was about to eat it when she saw her daughter staring.

“I’m lucky you’re there, Sweetie. You saved me from myself”.

Twittering Tales #136 – 14 May 2019


I have also included the following word prompts:



I get lucky

When I feel my life is in a mess,

I get lucky.

When everything I try just fails to impress,

I get Lucky.

When the troubles of life get me down,

There’s no need to cry.

There’s one thing on which I can always rely.

Because I’m Lucky,

I get lucky.

If the bills and debts are building up,

I get lucky.

When life has left me with an empty cup,

I get lucky.

When the stresses of life give me a frown

there’s no need to fear.

I know that one day everything will come clear,

Because I’m lucky

I get lucky.

I have my ups and downs like all my friends

But I know.

They won’t last forever, there are no dead-ends

I’ve somewhere to go.

Whatever life brings, whatever life throws,

I get lucky.

Through stormy rains and wintry snows,

I get lucky.

When i’m not in the pink I’m in the brown

I don’t give a toss.

I’ve no further to sing, yet I fear no loss,

Because I’m lucky

I get lucky.
