She was desperate to find him. He was all she needed. Strange really because she was a pretty girl and yet he wasn’t what you’d call handsome. For starters, his head seemed rather small, his arms were short and his bandy legs were gross!

But he was one in a thousand. After playing around with many others, he was THE one. He would provide what was missing. With him it would be complete. But he was playing hard to get and even harder to find.

But what’s that under the table?

“Eureka!”

She immediately put him in his place!

Finished!

    I'm just wondering what sort of jigsaw it was lol. Very funny.

    Thanks Shaun and LesleyAnne. It’s a thousand-piecer, with five postcard-type views of the Salcombe Estuary, our absolute favourite holiday destination (x36!). Lots of grey sea, blue sky, green trees and dark brown headlands.... and quite a few boats too.

    Very funny and very clever - the bandy legs were hilarious :) Another great drabble Neville!

    Thanks Drew. We have a very large dining room table but right now it can be difficult to find a place to eat, with pieces everywhere, including the floor! But usually, I have to admit, it’s me that’s Mr Messy. Right now though, I’m loving it up here on the moral high ground! 😇
