Tickled Pink

R. Atkins

Anyone passing Jolly Solly’s house at 100 Sunny Lane on a fine Sunday morning would have seen something odd peeking above the garden wall. It was the top of a pink tent, which Jolly Solly had set up in his backyard for a grand party that very afternoon.

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

All the neighbors had been invited to the Posh Pink Tea Party, being held in honor of Jolly Solly’s mother’s birthday, and named for her favorite color. Not only was the tent pink, but the neighbors had seen Jolly Solly lugging inside great towering stacks of pink plates, pink cups, and pink cutlery. These were followed by packs of pink napkins, and fluffy pink mats for the floor. As for the food — well, nobody really knew for sure, but there were rumors that Jolly Solly would be serving pink sandwiches, pink cupcakes, pink cotton candy, and pink soda (to be drunk with pink straws, of course).
