“Life is like a box of chocolates“, she said handing him a neatly wrapped box.
“But I don’t like chocolates!” he said, taking the box reluctantly.
“You take the pleasure out of everything!”
“I don’t like to be surprised.”
“But I love to receive and give surprise gifts.”
“Open the darn thing, will you!”
He unwrapped a shiny new phone.
“Thank you, darling… just what I wanted!”
“I told you that surprises are great.”
“Yes. I’m wondering how surprised man in the store will be when I go to return this.” he said pulling out the exact same phone from his pocket.
This is a 100-word response to the prompt ‘Unexpected’ on the Facebook Group GBE2. Although this is not based on a true-life incident – it could happen in our home 😉
