A-Z Challenge Day 8

Post 1648. Monday April 9



I saw Rosey in the hardware shop looking at buckets.

“What are you after?” I asked.

“Well” she said, “there’s a hole in my bucket ….”

“…. dear Liza, dear Liza” I sang out. It was greeted with a blank stare

“As I was saying, the canopy over my balcony leaks and I use my bucket to catch drips. Yesterday when it rained the bucket was empty and the floor was wet. That’s how I know there’s a hole in my …. “

“…. bucket, dear Liza, dear….”

Shut up” she shouted “This is serious

“Sorry,” I said.

“I also want a bucket to put my list in”

“What list?”

“My bucket list”.

I pointed out that you don’t actually keep it in a bucket, it’s only called a bucket list because…. because…. then I realised I didn’t actually know!

“What’s going on your list?” I asked

“One. Learn golf”

“So you can get a hole in one?”

As I was saying, two, go into space”

“Careful you don’t fall down I black hole!” I quipped.

At last, she began to laugh!

I’ve got a hole joke!” she said.

“Better than half a joke” I chuckled. She ignored me and continued.

“A man walked past a hole in a wall and heard a voice coming from it. It said, ‘six six six’.  The man peeped in and a fist popped out and bopped him on the nose. ‘Seven seven seven’ said the voice! Do you get it?”

“Yes” I groaned

“I don’t,” said Rosey.


Tomorrow, I is for Invite

  1. Hi Keith – poor Rosey … she really does have a problem doesn’t she – but will she come right … still she laughs her way out of her ‘holes’ … take care and here’s to a good week for Rosey and her ramblin’ … cheers Hilary


    1. It’s one of those jokes some people get and some don’t as I’ve found from the comment.s. Rosey didn’t, but that’s hardly surprising. She known for telling great jokes that she doesn’t understand herself!
