Red Riding Hood Revisited

Hi everybody, it's weekend! Hope you will all have a relaxing one. It's sunny and warm here - at last, and it's a long weekend with Whit-Monday coming up, so should be good. I need to do a spot of shopping and then I will have lots of time for crafting, writing, painting, and reading. Sounds good, huh?

2 days ago I published a little tag with Red Riding Hood and the Big, Bad Wolf. Now I have written a little story to go with it, and it's called - as the title above suggests - Red Riding Hood Revisited.

Here it is:

One fine day, Red is getting dolled up to go out. Her Mom comes into her room, and asks her to take her Grandma some goodies on the way to the disco.
Red decides to take the short cut through the woods, although the sun is already setting.
A big, bad wolf comes towards her and says,
‘Hey, Girlie, off out again?’
‘None of your business, Dude’ she answers.
‘Wanna go out with me, Babe?’ he purrs.
‘You got cash in your pocket, man?’ asks Red
‘Oh, sh-t! That’s a problem’ he says. ‘I ain’t got no pocket neither!’
‘And I don’t go out with no losers’, she says. ‘Go get yourself some old Grandma and have fun with her!’
‘Hey, Babe, great idea!’ he says. ‘See you around!’

So, if you go down to the woods today – chill! The big, bad wolf is busy!

Have a great weekend you all, take care and thanks for visiting!


  1. Good story. Now, you are a Grandma and sending the Wolf after others? Hugs, Sarah

  2. It's a fairy tale, silly, it doesn't really happen....It's just written to keep grandmas from roaming around the woods alone at night!

  3. Fabulous Valerie, gave me a good chuckle. Enjoy the sunshine, it's beautiful weather here too. xx
