100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#152


Well the election here in the UK has taken place and a new government is in place. Social media seems to have been awash with all sorts of angst at the result. It would appear that if you don’t like the result you blame the voters! Strange!

The prompt this week is a take on recent events and is:

…that’s democracy…

Don’t forget, only 100 words now!

A man walked into the ladies department and shyly walked up to
the woman behind the counter and said,
‘I’d like to buy a bra for my wife. ‘
‘ What type of bra?’ asked the clerk.
‘Type?’ inquires the man, ‘There’s more than one type?’
‘ Look around,’ said the saleslady, as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, color and material imaginable.
‘Actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only four types of bras to choose from.’
Relieved, the man asked about the types.
The saleslady replied:
‘There are the Catholic, Salvation Army, Presbyterian, and the Baptist types.
Which one would you prefer?’
Now totally befuddled, the man asked about the differences between them.
The Saleslady responded, ‘It is all really quite simple.’
The Catholic type supports the masses;
The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen;
The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright;
The Baptist type makes mountains out of molehills.

Oh and have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD , E, F, G, and H are the letters used
to define bra sizes? If you have wondered why, but couldn’t figure out what the letters stood for, it is about time you became informed!
{A} Almost Boobs.
{B} Barely there.
{C} Can’t Complain.
{D} Dang!
{DD} Double dang!
{E} Enormous!
{F} Fake.
{G} Get a Reduction.
{H} Help me, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!

Thanks to Face Book for this great laugh!

Bristol Botanical Gardens

During the Easter holiday week-end, we visited Bristol University’s Botanical Garden. I had no idea there was one and was delighted with what I found. The many exotic plants had been joined by a varied selection of sculptures. Some of their creators were there to show how it is done. This included a small forge where iron was being shaped into amazing pieces.

This selection of glasswork shows the complexity of this art. It really comes into it’s own when the light is right and you have a window to hang it in. The flowers have ‘petals’ made of glass.

This piece reminded me of a certain bird on social media!

   In the centre of the garden is a pond and artists took advantage to share some ‘people’ around it. I was not sure about some of them although I loved the title of the ‘seed’ which was Potential.


This chap could be found in among the trees. He reminded me of other similar sculptures that I shared at Broomhill Sculpture Garden
