The photograph below is from JESHOOTS-com at Pixabay.com and provided by Fandango for his Flash Fiction Challenge today.
For the visually challenged writer, the photo is of a smiling woman who seems to be lying on a bed with a TV remote control in her hand and a bowl of popcorn beside her. She’s munching on the popcorn and a handful of popped kernels are scattered on her body
‘Hi Honey, I’m home!’ Geoff called from the hallway as he put his keys in the dish on the shelf.
‘In here love,’ came the reply.
Sascha was lying on the bed watching TV.
‘I thought you were on a diet,’ he said eyeing the popcorn with a smile. ‘Scoot over and we’ll share.’
‘Nope. This is mine and I’m allowed.’
He looked disappointed.
‘There’s some more in the cupboard though. Help yourself.’
Geoff went into the kitchen and flicked the kettle on for a cuppa.
On opening the cupboard, he expected to find a few packets of popcorn amongst the biscuits. Instead, there was nothing BUT popcorn there.
‘What gives Hon?’ he called.
Sascha appeared in the doorway.
‘Weellllllll,’ she started…….. ‘it would appear that my recent weight gain is perfectly normal, and popcorn is good for me because………………..’
He turned to look at her when she paused.
‘We’re going to have a baby!! ‘
Geoff hit the floor clutching a bag of sweet and salty in his left hand as an array of various flavours fell after him.
