My Life with Duct Tape Episode 9











PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson

This house has never been warm. It’s that front door. I should replace it if I had some money. The letterbox flapped so I taped that up, which helped. Then another strip of tape at the bottom of the door cut out a load of draught and we were nearly there, almost cosy.
Until that is, the Incredible Hulk came visiting. Why can’t he knock for heaven’s sake? Or ring the perfectly good bell?
We’re going to need a bigger roll of duct tape…and more words.

Orange rhymes with sporange, a botanical term for a part of a fern. 🙂

  1. Michael, I enjoyed this fun piece. People do like their gaff
    I had to laugh at the Incredible Hulk reference. Our kids have just been away at the Australian Scouting Jamboree and my son took this thing called a ghillie suit with him which is a form of green, leafy camouflage. He was quite a hit in this thing and won a dance comp and some backstage passes. There was one photo where he had another scout up on his shoulders and looked like the INcredible Hulk and about 10 ft tall. You’d need a lot of gaff if my son popped round too, depending on whether his electronics and phone were on.
    Best wishes,

  2. Dear Michael,

    That Hulk needs some lessons in manners. 😉 So my question to you is, does sporange come in orange? I had no idea what my story would start such a discussion about rhyming words for orange. Love it.

  3. You had me looking up the sporange, since I only know it as sporangium… but then there is the oxford dictionary, and there we have it. 😀 Love the fun story, I think the Hulk can’t help breaking things being who he is.
