  1. Oh, that tea-drinking thing made me laugh! My husband slurps his tea very noisily and I always give him 'the look'. A great piece of writing, Madeleine!

  2. Hi Talli I've just updated the post, because actually it's not green tea it's a potent alcoholic beverage called Absinthe. ;O)

  3. I loved this. You really made me laugh.

    I leave shoes where ever I take them off - my catch phrase tends to be "Has anyone seen my shoes?" Bub get's his revenge when he collects them all up in a wash basket and tips them on the floor on my side of the bed. I call it the unfair carpet trick.

  6. Great flash fiction! :)

    Er, I just posted my entry for the blogfest . . . but I don't see my blog on the list. I could have sworn I entered my link before, but I must have forgotten or it didn't catch. I hope it's still okay that I wrote an entry on my blog?

  7. *giggle* That was great. Clever line at the end.

    Now, off to nag the husband to pick up his socks. :)

  8. Madeleine, that's a killer last line. I wish I'd thought of it. Is it a cliche? If so, maybe I can use it in the future, lol! Great cliche-riddled story. This is such fun.

  9. Hey Madeleine,
    Very good and very clever. One heck of an ending sentence. I shifted all the paintings around in my home. Now, I like to think my 'art's in the right place' :)
    Take good care and I'm most grateful for your kind comment on my latest posting.
    With respect, Gary.

  11. Totally had to LOL at the absinthe :) Then, I got the "green glow." Well done

    A woman scorned, and all that . .

    Thanks for hosting this Maddy :) I totally enjoyed it.

    Now I'm off to visit the others :)

  16. Glad I caught up with your blog before I missed this post. I loved it, that last line was an absolute pearler :-)

  17. Truly dreadful pun. I like it ;-)

  18. Thanks everyone. Glad you enjoyed the groanworthy 'pun'chline and the giggle.

    Loved how many of you identified with the sock dropping thing

    Denise -'Absence makes the heart grow fonder' is a well known, well used phrase, so I guess the more it's used the more it becomes a cliché by definition.
