WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY AND CHALLENGE #85
SHOEBY, SHOEBY, DOOBY!
IT'S FLAT FOOTED BOOBY RUBY!
Note: Anyone is welcome to play! Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun!
This is my story!
1. No, I did not make up that name! There really is such a bird as a Flat Footed Booby! And this teapot is proof! Isn't she cute in her black and white polka dots? Giggle! Coming off a very successful Softer Side of Teapot Tuesday, I thought you guys might be up for a little rough and rollicking. I had to look up the word rollicking up in the dictionary. It means playful and boisterous! The minute I saw that definition, I thought oh yah, that's the word for our teaparty this week. Besides, it sounds good with rough!
2. Darn it anyhow, Ruby was born with flat feet! Duh, she is a Flat Footed Booby whose parents named her Ruby! She hates being flat footed! She's sort of a party girl and whenever she goes out, the people always shout, there goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Smith...oops...sorry got sidetracked on that catchy little tune. (Betcha you will be singing that the rest of the day! ) Whenever she goes out all her friends wear the cutest little heels, pumps, sandles, boots, stilettos, etc. etc. And there she stands with her flat feet looking outdated, old fashioned and frumpy! It's so embarrassing!
3. So, here's the scoop, Swoop! Swoop is Ruby's brother. He was nic-named Swoop long ago because he won the coveted Flat Footed Booby Prize for swooping from a record breaking tall tree and successfully snatching a 42,000 pound record breaking fish from the local fishing hole! It was quite the *feet*! We are off to Galapogos Island to bring Ruby some new shoes! You know, something that will get some attention, get her noticed! She likes polka dots but she's pretty much up for anything, anything but flat feet! Oh and it would be nice she says, if they weren't green!
Swoop's a little jealous and asked that we bring him something too. When I asked him what specifically? He said, I dunno! Just something masculine and macho, something daring and dangerous!
4. Oh, and don't think I didn't arrange for some fun entertainment while we are there! We are riding record breaking 42,000 pound Galapogos gargantuous tortoises (don't worry they are very slow moving!), having tea on a boat with a glass bottom (don't wear a sundress, there are snorkelers in the water!), and swimming with the local whale sharks (only the friendly ones!)
I have help this week with three great sample cards!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? I am posting a sneak peak (tea peek) on my blog
each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it a couple days after the Tuesday Challenge is posted. So, be sneaky and get a jump on the other tea-potters! Snort!
