May’s skirt was about to get tangled in the wheels of the clown’s scooter

Boys will be boys. Or is that clowns will be clowns. Not much difference I guess. :D Your microfiction has the ring of reality.

Sorry I haven't been around much. Was away on holiday, came back to a bad car crash (OK except for bad back thanks) and move out of our house tomorrow and haven't got the new one yet! Pretty manic as you can hear.
Be away for a coup-le of weeks offline, but be back soon. Lots of love and keep those stories coming as I'll check them all out when I'm settled xx
