Libby was on her way to the market to buy some groceries,her mother gave her a list of items she needed, Libby was walking along and singing her favorite song , “And he’ll be coming down the mountain with a banjo on his knee.”
Suddenly she heard someone calling, she looked around,lo and behold it was her best friend Felicity, running to catch up with her, Libby stopped to see why her friend was so desperate to talk to her.
Felicity: I was trying to stop you Libby, I heard the stores were closed today,they’d be open tomorrow.”
“I do not believe you Felicity, I’d have to find out myself, there is no reason for the stores to be closed, you go home, I’d see you after my shopping is done.
Felicity’s trick did not work, so she turned around and headed home, Libby continued walking,when she was close to the Supermarket she looked for her slip to check what was on it, but she couldn’t find it, she decided to go back home and get her mother to write another list, she found her mother waiting on the door step, when her mother noticed Libby with an empty bag, she completely lost it, it gave her a severe headache, it took three Tylenol pills to get better, she made up her mind never to send Libby for grocery shopping!!
Thank you for sharing this interesting piece of fiction.
All good wishes,
thank you robert.
I’ve had those three Tylenol kind of days! I loved this-a wonderful and interesting piece of fiction is exactly right!
Thank you Valerie.
I appreciate your comment,you made my day.
Three Tylenol? That’s a serious headache! (If I don’t have a list, I don’t shop- my memory isn’t that sharp 🙂 )
Thank you Janna.
Why didn’t Libby’s mother ask her for the reason she came back home empty handed without any of the shopping done?
Interesting take on prompt.
