A-Z Challenge Day 13

Post 1653. Saturday April 14



Rosey’s mother disapproves of excessive alcohol consumption. She’s a one-sherry-a-day plus a glass of wine on Sunday kinda gal! Daddy, however, enjoys a tipple or two – you should see what’s hidden in his shed!

They were having some work done at their house, so for one night only they availed themselves of Rosey’s spare room.

Rosey didn’t relish the prospect of another lecture on temperance from Mummy so she came up with a plan. She bought three large bottles of water, partly emptied two of them and topped them up with generous measures of vodka. Invisible booze! She just needed to be careful when pouring to give herself and Daddy the alcoholically infused variety, and Mummy the undoctored one. It worked and everybody was happy!

During the night Mummy woke up feeling very thirsty, so she crept to the kitchen to get a glass of water.  Yes, you’ve guessed, Mummy unknowingly poured herself some of Roseys special water. She quite liked it so she had some more, then some more!

At three in the morning, Rosey was woken from her slumbers by the sound of singing and went to investigate. Imagine her horror when she found Mummy on the balcony in her nightdress serenading a couple of seagulls whilst being watched by several irate neighbours!

Rosey got great pleasure from telling us about it. For once, she was the sensible one in a hilarious situation rather than the other way around!


Monday, N is for Naked! (no, not Rosey!)

    I bet Rosey’s Mom hadn’t had that much fun in a long time 🙂

    Hi Keith – poor Rosie’s Mum … bet she had a major headache … and oh yes … what next – I was just thinking about a glass of vino on a wet, very damp, miserable day … it is 5.25 (pm by the way!) … must be allowable now!! Cheers Hilary

    I’m sure Rosie’s mom would have been thankful for that erm…water

    Wonderful story, Keith. Mummy will perhaps be now looking for Rosey’s special water more often.🙂🙂

    Aah! With Rosey, there’s never a dull moment. I am sure Mum didnt admonish her ever again about excessive alcohol consumption.:D

    Looks like Rosey’s rubbed off on Mummy after all these years. Hope Rosey had the foresight to video Mummy, in case of any future lectures on temperance!

      Now that would have been a good idea! Even if she didn’t I suspect one of the neighbours d!d!

    Hope this doesn’t start mom down the path to over indulging. sounds like Rosey has a great view.

    Mommy sure had a blast and I bet she is asking for more.

    But for Rosey “mum’s The word”!

      It is indeed! As for asking for more, I doubt it, but she might just secretly make some herself! Cheers, Natasha.

      Ps. I always smile back at you when I see your jolly gravatar!

      Apart from an aching head, she was either regretting it or looking forward to more! Cheers Susan.

    Mum in her nightdress serenading the seagulls is a very funny image 🙂 Wonder what the seagulls thought…?


    • Keith's Ramblings Apr 15, 2018 / 15:15

      They did actually join in, so I guessed they enjoy a good sing along! Thanks Jenny

      I remember my daughter saying something like that – I can’t think why!

    Ha! Ha! Mum doesn’t like to keep things bottled up. Maybe she is different when she is full of spirits
