That’s me! But hardly ‘in cold blood’. I’m livid... I want revenge... it won’t wait. I want it now!

Most people think of me as mild-mannered. Why, I’ve even been described as a ‘gentleman’. But there’s another side to me I try to keep hidden... and that’s far from ‘gentle’ when I’m on the warpath.

I get armed... to the teeth. I cannot fail; I will not fail.

Tonight it was salmon risotto for supper. ‘Yum-yum’ I thought.. as did a plague of flies.

Pfffff! went my spray can...

‘Whap!’ went my whapper.

But their ‘ouches’ went unheard.

    A credit to Mrs H.'s cooking. Mine definitely does not attract anything. Once, I put rice outside for the foxes because my kids refused to eat after first spoonful and guess what... the next morning, no fox or stray dog or cat had eaten it!!! 😊 Nice drabble but I hope you did not use the spray near the table 😂

    Oh no Frenchie... we have very big windows that the flies seem to like. Messy windows now after the whapper treatment! I’m sure your cooking isn’t that bad... or is it?🥴

    Maybe we should ask the foxes' opinion about my cooking 😂😂 Oh, messy windows, do you mean... corpses on them? Wow, that was definitely a carnage 😂 😂 but not cold, more like hot angered hehehehe

    Loved this one! But choose your fights carefully — I went camping once near Loch Lomond. There were nae bonny banks, just battalions of midgies swarming over everything!

    Not just corpses, Frenchie, but squashed ones.

    Thanks Andrew, we’re due to have a trip to Edinburgh and then on to Crinan on the west coast, but the prospect of those blasted midgies tends to put us off.☹️
