‘Oy you’ shouted the potty-mouthed pot.

‘Who me?’ I replied.

Yea you’ it yelled.

‘What do you want? I asked.

I want you to buy me and take me home’ it said.

‘Why?’’ I asked.

‘Because I’m fed up with being surrounded by this miserable lot’ it murmured. ‘The last time one cracked a smile it fell in half’.

‘Why would I want a pot? ‘I asked.

‘I’m not a pot’ it said ‘I am a chimenea’

‘No you’re not’ I said. ‘That’s a fire-breathing she-monster from Greek mythology with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a serpent's tail‘.

‘No not a chimera, idiot’ it mocked. ’A chimenea, chim...en...ea. And by the way, I do breathe fire - while I’m cooking your burgers.’

‘I don’t eat burgers, and as for cooking al-fresco….’

I didn’t know what else to say and I could tell by the pot’s – sorry, chimenea’s glazed expression that it was getting bored with our conversation.

Oy you’ shouted the potty-mouthed pot at somebody else.

I left them to it and walked away.

  3. LOL, that pot sure has a mouth on it! I'm pretty sure the fact that it talked would be a big point against it. Imagine what such a cheeky chiminea might say to my guests! Fun take, Keith.

  5. Potty mouth indeed! Chimeneas are common in this area, but none have that much attitude! When I grew up people who were similarly outspoken were often referred to as "crackpots"! :-)

  6. That's funny. I think of shoppers who tell of an item calling out to be purchased.
