Heading home (Friday Fictioneers)

April 20, 2017

“It’s not going to fit.”

“… Really?”

At the expression on Sally’s face Jenny bit her lip. Still a chuckle tickled her throat. She pictured it bursting from her chest like Alien.

Sally’s voice reached notes only a soprano could hit. Or Michael, that time he was hit in the nuts. “But they’re my favorite pair.”

Jenny was more worried about the books. She eyed her own gargantuan bag. Did she risk the overstretched zipper?

“Maybe I should… leave them.”

Jenny’s mouth dropped, as did her stomach. “No… lets post them home.”



… the post office lost the package.



This is a Friday Fictioneers prompt

  1. Dear Laurie,

    Talk about a comedy of errors. Poor Jenny. Perhaps their parcel will find the couple I’ve sent that are floating around the postal cemetery. Good one.



    • Oh no… yes it does seem to happen at the worst time!! Maybe one day you’ll see those packages again 😆

    Oh no! The shoes… That was fun. I hope she didn’t lose the books too.

    • Gosh me too…. i was worried more about the books too! Me and my flatmate living overseas sent a lot of stuff home we couldn’t fit in our bags ! 😂

      • gahlearner permalink

        Me too, when I was in New Zealand for six months (eons ago)–I bought all these books and the suitcase was already full… 😀

  3. LOL. And so it goes.

  4. I like that part where she pictured the chuckle bursting from her chest like an alien. I have felt that feeling! Great story!

  5. Very amusing, unfortunately the post can never be trusted and it’s always the treasured things they lose, or t seems to be

  6. The revenge of the post office! Such a funny story. Loved this take on the FF prompt.

    Well told. It’s a pity their good idea come to nothing. Hopefully the PO will find the parcel one day.
