Hump Day Kick Start

Song of the Day: Sound of Winter by Bush

They say bad cowboys wear black.

What do you think about today’s prompt. Who is he? What’s his story? Is he a good guy, or a bad guy, and WHY? Boy, that’s a lot of rope.  What do you think he’ll do with it? Oh, the possibilities.

Let me hear your take on this bronco-buster.

    Okay, this one’s tougher than some of the others.
    It’s Elwood’s first day at work and he rushed so much getting there that he barely got dressed. He was told the job involved hemp, so he figured he’s be smoking all day — ha.
    Seriously, he was told it was measuring and selling rope, so naturally, he figured it was cowboy rope.
    When he arrived, the new boss — Miss Priscella Wanton — explained (rather patiently, I’d say) that this was nautical rope and rigging and Elwood would be selling bait along with sails and lines.
    Rather than sending him home for deck shoes and a sailor cap, Priscella decided to take him under her wing for OJT.

    Wanton? Really? HAHA! That Priscella really takes work seriously. I bet she wouldn’t even mind if he smelled a bit fishy.
    Ahoy! Another great one, Jeff!

    Naw, his name isn’t Elwood! And catch that look in his eye, he’s a bad boy through and through. People call him Stone, Cap’n Stone, for the stone cold disregard of civilized mores. He’s a pirate looking for the one woman who ever melted his heart, Miss Jennifer. The cowboy hat is his disguise. Works well, doesn’t it?

    Awwww, Cheri! Always thinkin’ of me and my roguish boys. You are awesome. 🙂 And, absolutely, the cowboy is a great disguise. I hardly noticed he was half dressed.
    Let’s weigh anchor, Capt’n Stone, and set a course south. LOL!

    “Don’t even think about it, there’s enough rope behind me to hog tie or hang the lot of you. And you can just dangle in the wind until the heat withers your skin, and your toes pop from the blood pooling in them. But just in case that isn’t enough to stop you, there’s a couple of long horns in barn and they just love to charge a hanging body. Before you ask— yes I’m that tough and that fast”

    Ooh..Ruth. You know I’m a sucker for a man who is “that tough and that fast” AND knows how to use lots of rope. HAHA!

    Love the “your toes pop” line. That is so YOU!

    Jeff, love the idea but I agree with Cheri on his name. He isn’t an Ellwood. He’s more like a Rory and a master at branding…cattle that is. He is the new hand at the Triple X Ranch which is owned by the lonely, widowed Bambi. Life is good on the Triple X.

    Gotta love the not so subtle innuendo. Too funny, Deanne. Love your take on Mr. Stud.

    Oh, and Jeff always gives the Alphas in Hump Day Kick Start lame, unmanly names. It’s punishment, I think, because I don’t put up enough pictures of the fairer sex. 😉

    Ha! Interesting theory, Mary Anne.
    But I think I’ll stick to the pirate disguised as a cowboy. Hey…what can I say? Love me some pirate rogues. 🙂
    Good to see you back!
