The Silly Season is upon us.

The Silly Season is upon us.

a Liskeard Writers Group 10-Minute Exercise – Prompt 2: Fallacy.

We renamed the seasons – they had been called the same names for so long; Spring became ‘Bounty’, Summer became ‘Heat’, Winter was renamed ‘Cold’, and Autumn became ‘Time of the dropping leaves from the trees when the Earth sighs with relief at the time of Harvest. The Americans decided that this was Fallacy.

We decided to rename America as The Land of the Giants, they renamed Britain as Limeland.

Everybody else looked on from the sidelines as the silly-season began.

We thought about that and made up a fifth season – Silly.

Well, you would – wouldn’t you?

Pangolins, Frangipanis, and the like.

Pangolins, Frangipanis, and the like.

Pangolin!

Frangipani!

No, Pangolin!

You wouldn’t eat a Pangolin?

No.

But you can eat a Frangipani.

Isn’t it an animal?

No. It’s… type of pasta… I think.

So, it might be an animal?

Well, okay, yes it might. I don’t know. It was just the first thing I came up with after your Pandolin – which I thought was a musical instrument.

Oh. It could be. Perhaps we should check these things out.

What, before we go public?

Are we going public?

Obviously. Who could keep our amazing banter under wraps?

Philately!

Careful, you’ll burst a blood vessel if you carry on like that.

Sorry.
