‘You lied to me, said you had a boat.’
‘I did not lie. I do have a boat, just not the kind of boat you imagined.’
‘I had visions of cruises and top deck sun bathing.’
‘Yeah, well, you can have a cruise, but the sunbathing might need a bit of work.
Besides, you also kinda lied too………..’
‘How so?’
‘You said you had a bike………’
‘I do, just not the kind of bike you imagined.’
Realising what she had just said, the pair linked arms and burst out laughing.
‘Just think what we can tell our grandchildren!’

98 words.


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    They sound like a couple with the potential for happiness. Always good to be aware of your own faults and able to laugh at them. Nice story.
