100 Word Challenge for grown-ups: Week#132

Julia’s off on an oxymoron to Ireland with Hubby running behind trying to keep up.
So she’s given us ‘Emerald’ as our challenge this week…in 100 words. Yeh, thanks Jules.


Good Morning, I need some green paint for a wall in my flat.

What green would you like Madam? There’s artichoke green or bottle green? Shamrock?

A little brighter perhaps, like Dartmouth or asparagus green.

Well, there’s sea green, Persian green, Pakistani green.
Or Malachite, jade or hunter green?

No. It needs to catch the light.

Neon green then? Prussian green, rifle, Paris, celadon, gang, fern, jungle, mint or pine?

No none of those.

Ah, myrtle? Sap or tea, olive, emerald, moss green, dark moss green, very dark…

Emerald. Yes that’s it!

How many litres?

I’m not buying, just looking thanks.
