Gargleblaster #168: The Mermaid

There was poundin’ on the door.
I can’t ignore him, he won’t leave.

 Through the door I say, “I know what you want, Cap’n.
“She’s not here. I threw her back.”

 “Arrgh, Ya won’t mind if we look around then.”


Holy smokes – A prize “Top Row Seven” I am honored and excited.

  1. Love the suspense you have created here. I can picture it as a movie scene. I was trying to go in a similar direction for my mermaid tale but just couldn’t find the words. I’m glad I went off in a different direction now as you covered it so well!

    1. I like to include pirates whenever possible. I’m thinking about taking Pirateology classes at the local Junior College. Considering a career change.
      I’m glad you liked it. Thanks.

    1. I’m glad you liked this one. I’m happy that you took the time to let me know. I’m all about positive reinforcement over here.


  2. Classic police tactics …loved the line about “throwing her back”, that should buy him a few minutes. Just keep them away from the tub. 😉

    1. Some believe that a pirate’s favorite letter would be the R but, it’s not. A pirate’s favorite letter would be the C!


  3. ‘I threw her back’ lol I know a few who might wish they could have said that about me. Hahaha Great post, Thom!
