Silly me, I locked myself out!

I wrote this for Sunday Scribblings 2 where our prompt word is Overnight

I locked myself out last night. Good old me! I tried reaching the indoor bit of the lock by laying on my back and reaching through the cat flap, but it didn’t work and I got my arm stuck. So I lay on the floor for a few minutes thinking what to do, much to the amusement of Bill from the next door flat who just giggled and stepped over me. Just wait ‘til he needs help! Tough mate. Eventually I wriggled free.

I knew my friend Keith had a spare key at his place - he likes to have one ‘for emergencies’. Like running out of wine! So I drove to his pad. I knew he’d be there doing his knitting or whatever he gets up to when everyone else is out enjoying themselves on a Friday night. He seemed pleased to see me. He insisted we watch a movie - that Through the Looking Glass one I gave him - again! I reckon he's got a thing for Alice!

He offered me a drink, then another, and another, and then one thing led to another and........GOSH NO, not that! Heaven forbid! 

No he suggested I stay overnight on his blow up thingamajig on the floor. So I said thank you and yes, and then off he popped to his boudoir. I saw there was bit of wine left in the bottle – well, quite a bit actually, and it seemed a shame to let it go to waste!

I left about an hour ago with his/my key. I didn’t see him. Still in the land of nod I guess. Old people and all that. Before I left I had a lovely long bubble bath, found a couple of tasty croissants and there was just enough coffee left in the jar to make myself a cup.

That’s what friends are for!



I hope I didn't make too many mistakes. I usually get Keith to help me, but this time I did it all on my own! Yea!

  1. I would never have suspected that Keith was a secret knitter.Things don't lead from one thing to another with a knitter, so you're safe there Rosey:)
