Stained - 55


He watched as the red spot on his chest 
spread and darkened on his stark white shirt. 
He had felt nothing. 
Heard no warning. 
Disbelief overcame shock. 
“Why?” he asked himself. 
Why had he worn a freshly laundered white shirt 
when he knew he would be up to his elbows 
in a condiment filled burger?

Ooooh... what I wouldn't give for one of those 'bib-burgers' right now! Juicy one, Monkey Man.

Brian Miller said...

dustus said...

The old squish-shot! lol Awesome set up on this one.

Shewriting said...

lol...I hate when that happens and it always does which is why I don't dress my kids in white :)

Alice Audrey said...

LOL!! Excellent twist!

I was munching a burger in the car yesterday -- I stuffed some napkins around my collar in case of this trauma. And guess what? no Heinz besmirched my lovely threads.

But... if I had NO napkin armor -- bingo -- red stains on my lovely powder blue frock would for sure have ensued.

xoox

Me said...

True story: I don't own a single article of clothing that is white. And *this* is exactly the reason why. :)

G-Man said...

I've asked myself that question DOZENS of times. And always after the fact!
Messy 55 Brother...
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Jingle said...

A Daft Scots Lass said...

Heinz!!!

Excellent.

MorningAJ said...

I sympathise. I don't think I have a single t-shirt without some kind of food mark that simply won't wash out!

I'm up here

Belinda Munoz said...

Yup. This is why I wear a lot of black and why I never dress my son in white.

Tabor said...

I wonder if there is anyone in the world that this has not happened to.

f82bfat said...

I have to wear white shirt and black slacks to my part-time job. With 3 dogs and 4 cats I can certainly empathize with this 55. Be it coffee, ketchup or pet hair, I am like a magnet for them.

Ami Mattison said...

Good one! You had me there for a minute; so the ketchup is a nice surprise and very funny. Great 55!

the walking man said...

I have learned to never eat a cup of yogurt unless the hoodie I am wearing is at least a week dirty for this exact reason.

Deborah said...

LOL ... very good! :o)

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

Never wear white on burger day!
Or burrito day, or chili day, or...

Hell, just don't ever wear white - then you'll be safe.

Adsila said...

I can not wear white. It never fails, I will stain it.

Mama Zen said...

Love the twist, Monkey Man!

budh.aaah said...

Surprised at the turn you took at the end :)

Mona said...

Whew! Thank God it was only sauce!

hedgewitch said...

You got a chortle out of me with that one,MM. Great 55.

DaleTheDoll said...

For a human, I like the way your mind works.

Lulda Casadaga said...

And here I thought it was a great murder mystery about to begin! :D
Hell I alway get spots on my boobage shelf! great 55...

Steve Isaak said...

LOL - I know, right?

wordsasunder said...

Haha...I'm good with burgers..it's the spaghetti bolognase sucking that gets me every time! :)

Matty said...

I need to wear a bib. Anytime I eat anything red like ketchup or spaghetti sauce, it winds up on me intead of in me.

TALON said...

I always love reading your twisted 55s, Monkey Man!

kavisionz said...

hahahah..and just for a moment, you had me thinking "but why his heart?" :)
Thank God it was just ketchup (or whatever)

You sure can spin a tale, MM!! :)

Doctor FTSE said...

Ketchup in the UK. Catsup in the USA. Not BLOOD after all. Spoilsport! (But a neat 55!)

Kelley said...

I was holding my breath on that one, MM!! You scared me!

evalinn said...

That could very well be me! ;-)

Janna said...

I've done that same thing, except for me it was barbecue sauce.
There might have also been a previous incident involving taco sauce.

I really need to wear black more often.

Marla said...

Sounds like my eating style.
