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 which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. 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.
