“Churlish? Are you kidding me?” Cheryl said. “I simply have a realistic view of things, Sue. You, on the other hand, act, at times, like an animated cartoon character.”

Written for this week’s 50 Word Thursday prompt from Deb Whittam at Twenty-Four. The idea is to use the image above (unattributed), along with the line, “Provided she did exactly as instructed, she should be able to get it right.” from Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death by MC Beaton, and to write a post that must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50 word increments.

Also for these daily prompts: The Daily Spur (hang), Daily Addictions (funny), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (churlish), Word of the Day Challenge (view), Your Daily Word Prompt (animated), and Ragtag Daily Prompt (emergency).
