Dismal chance of a lobster roll call as man hankers for lobster rolls.

A Ferry Tale: Snoozing Cuties

Terror of the sea,
Running around the ferry,
Ripping through the aisles with glee,
Screaming like a banshee.

A little old lady,
Smiling kindly,
Offers him a chunky chocolate cookie,
He sits to munch silently.

Shortly, he joins his sister, Lily,
Who is napping already.
With eyelids fluttering softly,
He snoozes eventually.

Morning with Elvis (100-word story)

Spring fling is in swing. What’s better than having a thing with the King? Yesterday she attended a local amusement park show to hear the singer’s baritone and dance to the beat of his gyrating hips. After the show, their eyes met and held steady. A photo op with the entertainer came next and she ran to his side with arms akimbo. Her chest grazed his and sparks flew. Who knew? One thing led to another after drinks. Alyssa smooches the Polaroid photo of her posing with the Elvis Presley lookalike. His lips are at their sweetest the morning after.
