Tale Weaver #178 – Karma – 5/7/18

This week Michael is asking you to write about karma.

Sure I believe in Karma and what goes around comes around etc.
When the drunken bastards uprooted our Ancient Mariner rose bush, I hope they got thorns that went septic and had the hangovers from hell for a week , but I’ll never know.
I also hope a similar fate befell whoever stole the entire head in full glorious bloom of the deep red rose standard my father had given me.  They left just the stem so I had no chance of even taking a cutting.

However, this little prank came back to bite me in the backside.

When my first nephew was born over fifty years ago, I used to babysit.
OB had a milkometer gadget on his front wall which indicated how many pints of milk he wanted that day. The range was zero to 5, and yes, I put it on 5 the day I was taken home. Nobody noticed until 5 pintas were left on the doorstep the next day. I did own up when asked.
Fast forward to 1978 and my first marital home where I had something similar on my wall. Yep, someone, I never found out who, changed it from 1 to 5. The Ex-to-be got rid of it.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! 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 now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
