Sunday Photo Fiction – May 17 2020

Jerry was so excited, Miranda thought he would burst, and now his surprise was ready to be revealed.
‘I’m going to show you Paris!’ he announced.
Miranda was thrilled. It was her fortieth birthday and she’d always wanted to go to Paris, the city of romance.
Hugging Jerry she asked when they would leave.
‘We can go anytime you like. How about now?’
‘Great!’ and she disappeared upstairs.
Half an hour later, Jerry stuck his head round the door and asked
‘What are you doing?’
‘Packing of course, silly.’
‘Why?’
Miranda said ‘We’re going to Paris!’
‘We are?’
Laughing nervously, Miranda stopped what she was doing.
‘Y-eeesss. That’s what you said.’
‘Ah. You’d better look out of the window……………’

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.
