via Daily Prompt: Prickle

Ok, I have slightly amended this saying but since this is my blog and I make the rules, therefore, this is what I am going to do. Don’t stop reading though, I promise there is a vague point in here somewhere and it ends in a cute way so keep reading…

My first question for this phrase is why are tickling or prickling thumbs always seen as a foreboding sign, why can’t something wonderfully wicked be on its way? Someone with a wickedly funny sense of humour for example, or some wicked dance moves… or even better – a wicked Halloween party!

I realise I may have a slight obsession when I can (almost) neatly segway into an ode to Halloween from a simple word like prickle…

But there are other combinations of this, as I will demonstrate below;

And finally the picture the internet offered as the most perfect image for the phrase “By the prickle of my thumbs something wicked this way comes…” is this little guy;

Rambling post over… but the cute pictures were worth it, right? Plus I am so happy I was able to post about Halloween and cute hedgehogs in August!
