Tale Weaver #115: unbirthdays 13.04.17

With three hundred and sixty four to choose from, we’re spoilt for choice!

He wondered if she would remember.
It had been just a passing comment about forgotten birthdays he’d put on a blog forum some seven years ago but she had sent him an e-card on this day ever since.
The thing was, he’d never met her, had no idea who she was, where she lived, her age, if she was married or had family.
To be honest, he’d never asked.
All she knew about him was that he lived alone and had no family now.

With a sigh, he got out of bed, washed and dressed and went downstairs for breakfast.
Over his usual tea and toast, he opened up his email, and there it was.

‘Happy Unbirthday!’ he read. ‘Thinking of you today and hope you are keeping well.’
He smiled and sent his thankful reply.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
