Daily Prompts- Gala

She thought she would dress up real grand

For the charity gala, she had to attend

But she was lazy so she left it till the last moment

Not counting the days before it was happening

Now realizing it was today gave her a sickening feeling

Telling herself it didn’t really matter what she wore

She turned up at the event dressed as a chicken

In a costume from last year’s Halloween party

Was she a bit embarrassed when she saw everyone

Dressed to nines in splendid finery looking glamorous

Oh no! She was the novelty, drawing everyone’s eyes

In response to the following prompts;




Chicken, Counting, Bit





Word of the day challenge;

  1. Ha! I got caught out twice with ex husband…….. once being dressed to the nines when everyone else was in jeans, and the second time in casual clothes when everyone else was in evening dress. I didn’t go to the third function!

    1. Thats an uncomfortable position to be in. I prefer underdressed than overdressed. And by now, I really just need to be okay with myself. What others think really doesn’t matter now!
