A Young Dream Broken

For Saturday Centus at Jenny Matlock's blog...any genre, P.G as far as possible, not to exceed 16 words excluding the prompt in bold to create an autobiographical story...with a picture option this time round.



Sixteen in 1990 – Andre Agassi’s striking mane, my heart flutters…
2010 – find out, was a bloody wig!!! 


*The picture for those who don't know/remember

Agassi has admitted the long hair he sported in the '90s was a wig. (AAP)

Oh don't you hate when that happens! I once bought a wig (after a horrible experience at the hair salon) and nobody knew for the entire almost month that I wore it...the wig matched my style really well....but thankfully my own hair was wearable quickly.....! Thanks for my morning laugh of the day...this was great! Bloody right!

What?? Yeah, I lusted over him too but had no idea it was a wig. How could he possibly play tennis like that wearing a wig?? Must've been cemented on.

Yet again, you've taught me so much.

No! Say it ain't so! Really? Oh, how I loved his mane.

I'm so disappointed. It's as if you can't believe anything or anyone anymore.

A great story with such a sad twist. Being duped is never a good feeling and is worse when done by someone we admire.

Jenny said...

A wig!!!! A wig???? Are you serious?

No way.

My world is shattered.

In a grinning, loving your awesome writing kind of way!

Glad you made it this far...would love to hear your take on the words scribbled. A comment every now and then keeps the blues away. :D

Since, crazy Mr. Blogspot won't let me reply to the comments here (is upset with the water ladies ever since they refused to verify visitors)...will do the next best thing, drop in to your blog to say my Vanakkam/Namaste/Salaam/Hello.
