721 : A woman who offered ‘a la carte’...

Sunday Scribblings had the prompt ‘pastry.
This is a bad prompt for me:
There are too many naughty connotations.
But I wasn’t about to let that stop me.

A woman who offered ‘a la carte’
Was viewed by the men as a tart.
While the term is not nice
They would still ‘have a slice’
Before the time came to depart.

  1. I guess we can be grateful that you stayed away from rolypoly pudding and the proverbial bun-filled oven.

  2. You must have missed 'Carlotta' on TV the other night, otherwise gender issues may have been raised.

    1. Saw the ad, missed the show. Um...not my cup of tea. Or slice of tart. I think.

    2. Really delighted to hear that!

  3. Well..if you're serving yourself up on a plate I suppose you mustn't complain!

  4. Have a heart; it's on the serving cart!


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
