Friday Fictioneers 26th June

Ashley collected the eggs every day and placed them neatly in the tray on the window sill.
During the day, she turned them to get their fair share of sunshine and waited patiently.
She broke her heart when her grandmother took three to make a cake, calling her a murderer.
Her grandfather took her to one side and explained that not all eggs developed into chicks, and as they had no male ‘chicken’, it was unlikely.
Her bottom lip quivering and wiping her nose on her sleeve, she said
‘You’re a male Grampie. Can’t you do it?’

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.

  10. That is great!!! I will never forget when we had a rooster and I would forget to get the eggs in the morning. I had to give them back to the chickens. I cracked one once…and only once!

    • Happy memories. The first fresh egg I handled was on my uncle’s farm when I was about 4 and the shell was so fragile, it broke in my hand when I was washing it.

    If only Ashley knew, that Grampia is probably over his wild roster days – or at least the body is.

  14. Michael Humphris says:

    You made me laugh, which was great.

  15. Liz Young says:

    Apparently it’s been tried – I think the man was arrested for cruelty to chickens!
