Microfiction Monday #57: La Picazón


AHH!
So happy was Pablo
when Señor Gonzalez made his departure
and he could FINALLY relieve
(under his blessed poncho)
that most embarrassing itch

Poor Pablo. I hope he didn't have to wait too long to scratch "La Picazon"

Ellen Brickley said...

I like your entry - people seem to be very creative this week!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

LOL Such a gentleman, that Pablo, to wait for an opportune moment. He does look rather relieved, doesn't he? Good one!

Rinkly Rimes said...

He must have suffered waiting to be on his own to scratch! What delicacy!

Deborah said...

LOL very good!!

J. Kwiatkowski said...

I would think a poncho would be good to conceal scratching at any time, in fact, I think I might get one!

He can scratch to his heart's content under the poncho.

Jinksy said...

A snortworthy tale! Hehehe!

Always good when we are no longer under scrutiny ! hate scrutiny- Good one!

Peggy said...

Relief is wonderful!
Good one and so different!

I think you may have brought ponchos back into fashion!

Diane said...

Does he need an ointment of some kind?!?!?! :O)

Pat said...

Ponchos are so multi-purpose. Hilarious. It reminds me of what my son saw in Niger--many men wear the traditional Muslim garb of a long (to well below the knees) shirt over loose trousers. On long cross-country bus rides, bus drivers would stop for "pit stops" and the men would get off and relieve themselves right outside the bus, well covered by their long shirts. No such things as McDonald's out in the bush.

Makes me feel an itch coming on right now. And me without a poncho.

Pooch said...

A good laugh on this one! I've got to knit me a poncho!

SouthLakesMom said...

He may revive a fashion wave! Very well done!

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

Very, very funny. He has such impeccable manners to wait. Itches are hard to ignore.
