The Joke’s on Who? – Part 5

This story was started many weeks ago for a game of consequences on the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups. Snagglewordz wrote part one and then I took up the pen and wrote parts two andthree. Ventahl wrote part four and that should have been the end. Except that something about this week’s prompt drew me back to the story. So here, several weeks late, is part 5.

The Reverend James placed his teacup on the floor and settled himself back in his seat. “Goodness Gracious! I beg everyone’s pardon!”

Grandma cackled raucously. This was her best Christmas ever.

On the drive home David’s expression was icy and grim.

“It wasn’t my fault,” Susan pleaded. “You’re the one who suddenly decided we had to set out 3 hours early in case it snowed. I barely had time to wrap the presents, and I couldn’t find the labels.”

David’s face broke into a grin. “Did you see his face? I don’t think he’ll be round for tea for a while. God bless Grandma!”

Now why not go and see what the children did with the same prompt. Their challenge pieces are at 100WC.

  5. Hahaha, just been to read the others; I’d forgotten what a fun prompt that had been- I’m sure that Julia will repeat it sometime. Job well done 😉
