“Did you check? Did my package arrive yet?”

“What package?”

“The box… the books. My books… I’ve been stuck in here for months. I need to escape and since I can’t actually leave here, I want my books. Fantasy, mystery, science fiction, supernatural. Escape!”

“Well, go and have a look.”

“… dear…? How long has this box been sitting out here?”

“Oh, it’s arrived then? That’s good, darling. You’ll be happier now.”

“It’s postmarked weeks ago… Has this…? Did you… ? Why didn’t you tell me it was here?”

“Darling, why are you holding that rolling pin like that? Darling…”

    She should have gone for eBooks.

  5. Haha. That’ll be last time he forgets about any package. Great take on the prompt, Laurie

  6. Never come between an avid reader and their books! 😉

  7. This is a case of you can’t win for losing. I can feel the frustration on both sides here.

  8. That was cruel and unusual punishment!! So not cool.

  9. Oh, no! Pancake …
    And … well … I think that’s justified self-defense.

  10. Dear Laurie,

    Now that takes communication breakdown to a new level. 😀

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
