Welcome to Teapot Tuesday & Challenge #95
Trish Lafish’s wish
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!
Now that Seth the sailor is safe and sound on dry land;
I hope that we teapartiers can stick around and lend a hand.
(or a fin as the case may be)
Here is my story:
Poor Trish Lafish got lost in last week’s storm.
And her only wish is to return to her dorm.
She misses her schoolmates cause she got lost when the waves tossed her 42,000 miles off course!
She wants to return home at any cost, even if she has to ride a spiny seahorse!
She studied hard and got an education and she needs to be back in time for graduation.
She’s a lonely little fish, you see, she can’t get any dates
to stay in these waters would seal her miserable fate.
To the boys back home she is Trish “the Dish” Lafish,
they see her as a desirable and very glamourous fish.
But her makeup application is way too flashy
for the guyfish in these waters; it’s just too trashy!
So c’mon teapartiers let’s grant this fish her wish and help her get home to her 42,000 schoolmates so she can graduate.
Her return home won’t be problematic, if we supply her with all things aquatic. Bring cars: stick shifts or automatics; even entertainers who are acrobatic! She’ll need food to use as fuel to find her way back to school.
(Her alma mater in the water! snort)
Bring snacks to keep her energized & frisky, but please No beer & No whiskey!
We don’t want her ticketed for an SUI* or SWI**
To ensure she makes the journey home over the 42,000 miles of ocean.
She may have to stop in Paris or Rome - that’s a fine notion
- a double espresso would surely keep her in motion!
With graduation day just around the corner
her friends and family are acting like mourners.
Lets give Trish a send off worthy of Mudder’s teapartiers!
So she can get home in time to wear her mortarboard and pick up her diploma! As she swims by she’ll bid Arrivederci to Roma!

Thanks, Fran, for stepping in today with a totally fintastic pot and tail.
I had trouble getting into SCS during the two hours I was at home today, so this was all I had time to do. I had an image I wanted to use, but no colouring media here unless I went looking for my aunt's watercolours, and I don't like to rummage through her stuff.
So good to see you help out our Muddar!!! I just love the fishie you had, the bright colours inspired me alot. Wish I had a fish image with those big juicy lips though. I am sure I am going to see a few when I come back to comment.
Must go get food. We had company and they ate us out the house...just kidding, but I need to reload on veggies!!!
Katy Koi is a member of Trish LaFish's serority Gubby Delta Gamma. Rumor among the serority sisters has been that Katy has magic powers - I mean just look at her girls - every where she goes she glows! Katy has tried so hard to blend in but when she found out Trish got lost she has to swim to her aide and use her old black magic. Her glowing trail (and glowing tail) will help Trish follow her home in time for both to don their caps and gowns.
Thx for filling in Fran...this is such a darling teapot....I finally had time to play....to much b-day carrot cake I imagine....I was a slug yest....but my little fishy finally broke through to the home stretch...
