After The Garden Of Eden #stockphotochallenge

‘I hate that bloody snake.’

‘What’s wrong, Adam?’

‘You wouldn’t understand. I’ll kill him though.’

Eve chased after Adam and just managed to prevent him strangling the reptile. As Adam did his double teapot pose, Eve tried to comfort the snake. ‘Come on boys, what’s going on?’

The snake hissed, his voice hoarse. ‘All I said was if he stood in that light he would be possessed of Extra Terrestrials, only he misheard me.’

Adam glowered. ‘He didn’t. He said I’d get extra testicles. Just a couple would be good.’

Eve goggled at Adam. ‘We’ve only been dating a week…’

This is in response to a new challenge for me over at Don Massenzio’s Blog here

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.
