WFW - If I didn't know better

Words for Wednesday is a fun challenge for everyone to participate in, just take the list of prompts and use some or all of them any way you want, the purpose of the challenge is for us to write something and have fun doing it.

Delores from Mumblings is providing the words this month, if you join in please drop by and let Delores know so we can all enjoy your offerings too.

This weeks word prompts are:

caper, scarper, trash, bedlam, seams, penny whistle
and/or
glum, charmed, pork, glossy, pride, trench.

If I didn't know better

The newspaper headlines would claim the CAPER went off almost unnoticed, the vault in the bank was emptied out over the weekend without a sound and with armed guards posted right outside the door.

The BEDLAM of activity began once the bank manager opened the vault on Monday morning and found that the contents of the safe were gone, it was actually cleaned to the SEAMS with a hole neatly opened in the middle of the floor, leaving an exit for all of the money to SCARPER away.

The GLUM looks on the guards faces as they were being questioned by the FBI showed their embarrassment, the PRIDE in a job well done for them had disappeared down that TRENCH also.

Investigators flooded the vault lifting fingerprints and taking both GLOSSY color and black and white photos of every angle of the crime. The bank robber in this case was definitely a CHARMED soul because he had vanished without a trace of DNA or evidence left behind.

"Johnny!!, it's time to come in now!", "Awww Mom, can't I play a little longer?", "Come on in now, and bring your little sister too, I have your favorite PORK and beans already on the table!"

Johnny walked slowly towards the back door with his sister skipping behind playing a tune on her PENNY WHISTLE. "After lunch you and Lucy will go out back and clean up that mess you've made!" Mom said to Johnny "Just look at all that TRASH blowing in the yard, if I didn't know better I'd say it was money laying out there."

Johnny grinned as he looked back over his shoulder out across the yard.

  5. Jimmy, I really like what you wrote with the use of those words, your story sure came to life! I can't help but to think whether Johnny's mom has poor eyesight.

    1. Hey Lon, Thank you so much my friend, isn't it typical for most moms to overlook what their little Johnny is up to.

    2. P.S. Thanks Jimmy my friend for the link to Delores's post and blog, I left my story there for people to read.

      P.S.S. I don't know if you know but, I did a post out of my first comment I published for you to read under your post titled "Because it's my job," titled "My Household Chores and More" for my wife and I laugh whenever I read this comment of mine.

  6. Jimmy.I have solved your case. Your innocent little johnny was in the process of learning his new trade, Robbing banks. And Johnny's full name was John Dillinger. I rest my case.

    1. Vest, I like the conclusion that you came up with, I'll have to stick with this story because you are right Dillinger had to start somewhere.

  7. Well, he certainly is charmed. If he doesn't watch out, that luck may run out at a bad moment.
