100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#69
The prompt ~ Bah Humbug!
The Littlest Virtuoso
From the moment the little bug had finished his metamorphosis, he had loved to hum. In his short time on earth he had learned to hum the many different melodies he had been exposed to. Such musical masterpieces as Handel’s Messiah, or Debussy’s Clair de lune, were happily hummed in perfect pitch.
One day when visiting a lovely nearby garden, he landed on a fragrant rose. Becoming drunk off its lovely fragrance he began to hum loudly and most contentedly.
The gardener happened by and noticing him there, reached out to squish him.
“Bah, you Humbug!” He muttered with satisfaction.
Some extras for your pleasure…
Handel’s Messiah the music…
Debussy a bit of history and other musical facts! ~Do you imagine I love his music? I Do!
Debussy’s Clair de lune the music…
Do you think you know this piece? Well of course you do!

Omg, that was nasty and caught me totally off guard (so into the story, that I forgot it was one of your super shorties):
Does it help to know that he was an organic gardener?
poor Humbug! Nice music selections…:)
Glad you like them, Charron!
Glad you liked it, JzB, in spite of the brutality.
Hmm… did this entry need a “V” rating for violence? 😉
Wonderfully funny and very clever! 😉
Oh, thank you, Dianne…
I was starting to get a complex. 😉
At least he died quickly and on a good note. Perhaps it could be continued and the gardener missed him and instead his fist came down on the fence and the last thing the bug saw as he happily hummed away was the gardener staring in shocked disbelief at the cache of gold spilling out of its hiding place in the hollow fence post.
There you go…
Don’t like the ending? Then change it! LOL!
Good one, Gentlestiches. 😉
I was that gardener.
You know I believe you, Tom. 😉
O so not fair to the hummer! 🙂
Lovely rendition of Clare de lune. MMMMMM! So rich is the harp all by itself.
By the way, do you consume any of your geese eggs?
I love the harp. My sister-in-law played for our wedding and again for our 25th wedding anniversary. It was beautiful.
Yes, Eva, I do. I use them to bake with! 1 goose egg equals 3 chicken’s eggs and will make your cake divine!
I like duck eggs very much. Sounds like geese eggs are a yum too. Can’t eat the chicken eggs so am willing to try others. Divine cake–who can pass up that?! LOL.
Julie, I’ll take that “Ha!” and raise you a TeeHee! 😀
Thank you, Annie!
Oh, dear. Dear, dear. Distressing, but perhaps I’m not enough of a gardener to take delight in it! 😉
To be honest, I don’t delight in it. It is a necessary evil…
However, during Japanese Beetle season my chickens certainly delight in dispatching the little devils for me!
I thought that I had subscribed to you but had not. So I am back with out having to remind myself. Beautiful harp music. I especially like harp. So soothing.
Thank you PP&L! I’m glad you like the harp too. My Sister-in-law Kathleen plays the harp, so of course it is special to me!
Alas…giving his all for his art! Nicely twisted ending.
Yes, the poor little hummer died doing what he like best. Don’t we all want to go that way? 😉 I like how you phrased that, “Nicely twisted ending.” Thank you for visiting today!
The surprise ending totally caught me off guard!! Good work! Lovely music, to boot!
Glad you liked it, Lori!
😦 Poor little bug!
You’re good at this…
Oooh, keep telling me that and I might believe you! 😉
Thank you, dou dou.
I mean it, you are. 🙂
Thank you. (blushing)
Loved you little bug story, loved the way you bought in the Bah Humbug in the end. 😀
Enjoyed your videos as well, I hope you are enjoying the Christmas break, it is hard to imagine a New Year just around the corner.
Thank you, Mags! There is no break for those who are retired, LOL, but it is good to have Bob home for two four day weekends in a row! As for your last comment, I have to say, “Where did this year go?”
