you are making my toes ache rene...boom boom boom...
Ouch...the toes will never be the same!!
Great ending! A dark ride indeed if toes are left squashed.
Ouch I actually pulled in my toes at the menace of the velvet covered anvil.. great and painful imagery.
I love the words you've chosen. And of course going with the number 76 made me think of the Music Man, though I think this clown's treachery goes beyond a simple con.
Ouch! My toes shrivel in sympathy!
I agree with everyones pain :-) Nice write!ZQ
Ha ha I'm ve heard of "an ironic fist pump n a velvet glove " before but dont you think this is just taking things a little too far ??
I always thought fun fairs had the propensity to be dark..nicely captured!
Velvet draped anvils ~ what a visual! I enjoyed this, Rene!
This made me cringe, well written.
fun style! Totally dig the vivid imagery!
Oh no not the toes!
I like this Rene....well done
I like that. . . .sometimes a crowd starts to feel like a violent cartoon.
Quirky and delightful...as always...
OUCH - painful but an awesome job :)
