aches and pains---[Fiction] Friday/Friday 5

pardon my disinterest

to converse. toothache

is no joke. sanitary ware

was a bloody mess after I

brushed with medicated

paste. in my mouth

rolled tongue feels akin to

fuselage of an aircraft.

this year, winter solstice

is overshadowed by pain.


  1. Oh, that is so easy to relate to! Love your use of fuselage.

  2. Ouch! That sounds bad. Hope the aches ease soon.

    Michele sent me. :)

  3. This is a good take on the Fiction Friday Prompt. Nicely done as usual, Gautami.

  4. Hey Brian, I don't have a toothache now but I did have one last week!

  5. Not sure it's an image I wanted to see on a Friday but very well described.

  6. Hooray for Blogger for bringing back the URL option!

  7. I haven't visited everyone's yet, but I bet most focus on the reluctance of the character to attend the celebration at all. I like your approach, that the character wants to be there but external circumstances make it an unhappy experience.

    I'm trying to figure out how a rolled tongue feels like an airplane fuselage. :-)

  8. Love the way you fused the Solstice with Friday 5. Hope your aches are soothed soon. Thanks for sharing. Keep up the good work. Have a nice day.

  9. Nice one. The fuselage of an aircraft is an interesting metaphor!

  10. I agree, no joking with tootache...

    No winter solstice -
    thinking about a bad tooth
    made me forget all

  11. ouch... i can almost feel the pain :(
    but this was an enjoyable read nonetheless

  12. i hope this poem is fiction, gautami. Great use of the words.

  13. and wouldn't you know i woke up with one this very morning!!!!!!

  14. Gadzooks! I feel the pain. Neat use of words - I couldn't do it this week..
