In Other Words: Accidentally

Patricia asks us to write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word accidentally.

Seven year old Eric and his younger brother looked at the glass smashed at their feet.
‘Dad will be furious Tommy, and it’s all your fault!’
‘Because you ducked!
‘If I say I did it accidentally, maybe he won’t be so cross.’

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.

    Sounds like the usual brotherly competition of life strategy…and sisterly. Thanks for sharing.
