A 50-Word Story a Day Keeps the Boredom Away #56

Joanna sent her bookish husband Randy to the market, to buy mustard.

‘Be back in 15 minutes,’ she said.

Randy returned two hours later, with a book on methods of execution used in the Middle Ages.

‘Where’s the mustard?’

‘Oh!’ he said, scratching his head. ‘I knew I forgot something.’

  1. Yay. I’m famous. A dedication and now a story.
    And my wife said that I couldn’t “cut the mustard”…. and here I am now buying some. Well, I’m going back to reading my book on “elocution in the middle ages”…oh darn, the title is “execution in the middle ages.”

    “At my age I’d rather speak my rage than spear my page.” Ha – and you may quote me.

    Thanks BWaH,

  2. Ha! Reminds me of a children’s story in which a father and daughter, sent on a grocery shopping trip by the mother, forget to buy everything on the mother’s grocery list, and buy all their favorite treats instead! Cracks my son up all the time!
