Your line for this week is:

“What, were you expecting a cauldron?”

“What, were you expecting a cauldron?”
‘I don’t know’, said the cat, ‘but the black cloud is a bit much don’t you think?’
‘It is NOT a cloud! It’s my personal sun block, and besides, it goes with the hat.’
The cat sighed.
‘Witches wear pointy hats, and in case you’ve not noticed, that’s the moon in the sky, not the sun.’
‘No matter. I prefer this style, it’s more modern.’
‘Where’s your transport then? Walking is not in my job description. I should be riding pillion on your broom.’
‘Oh that……… I left it sweeping the flat. I hate housework, and fancied a stroll.’
‘It’s NIGHT for heaven’s sake!  It’s cold!! And what’s with the tree???’
‘Ah. I thought it looked unhappy all bare like that, so I gave it some lippy smiles.’
The cat ambled slightly in front. This assignment was going to be harder than he thought.

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.
