The cake was brought in as everybody sang.
She smiled sweetly, then suddenly started to laugh.
Everyone applauded, singing even louder.
To the person on her left she whispered,
‘I’m only 99. We had to lie about my age to marry and no-one ever found out!’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    What’s your name? If you’re willing to share, I know sometimes people have pseudonyms for a reason, but I’d love to attribute your entries to you if you’re willing.
