First Line Friday 14.04.17

Thanks to Dylan for this challenge.

Your line for this week is:

I’m going to tell you how I lost my inheritance.

It was quite simple really.
I slept through my alarm, missed the bus and was late for the appointment with the solicitor when The Will was read.
Uncle Joe had always hated tardiness, so it came as no surprise that if family members were not present, any bequest was automatically forfeit.
Cousin Jane told me later that my ‘share’ had apparently been his LEGO collection.
I was actually relieved as Uncle knew I hated it and had never liked me anyway.

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.
