Today we have Limebirds Raven and Vanessa taking part.
Despite the pounding in my head, I kept on walking, head held high. Well…as high as it could go anyways. It was the last day for two weeks and I couldn’t let George down. On I went, tightening my buttocks to keep my legs straight. I squeezed my knees together so I would not fall over.
Just ten more minutes…
The roar was deafening as we rounded the last curve. Man, that lion scares me every time. This time I almost lost my stance. At the ringleader’s signal, I lowered my legs, stood upright and waved. The Big Top was finally closed.
The day was Monday, but the socks said Wednesday. He glared at me. “Mummy, where are my Monday socks?”
“Darling, I can’t find them, but it doesn’t matter.”
“Doesn’t matter? It’s Monday. I need my Monday socks!”
Despite the pounding in my head, I kept calm. “Nobody will know what it says on your socks.”
“How about some plain socks?”
“Plain socks are for the weekend. Monday to Friday socks are for the week.”
I sighed. “Ok, well I’ll get you Daddy’s Monday socks then.”
Ten minutes later he walked out of the door, happy.
“Sylvia!” called my husband. “Where are my Monday socks?”
