for the Ragtag Daily Prompt where the given word is Unperturbed. Today it’s hosted by Christine.
Nothing seems to worry him. His wife left him a few days ago. ‘You’re such a bore’ she said.
‘Probably right’ said he as she walked off with her bags, ‘bye’.
When the doctor told him he wasn’t too well, he just shrugged his shoulders and carried on unperturbed.
His faithful dog died. It happens. Someone damaged his car. That happens too. His house was burgled. Never mind, it’s insured.
Nothing excites him either. Birthdays? Just numbers. Visitors? He makes polite conversation but nothing more.
He plays the Lottery. Doesn’t expect to win, but his ten pounds a week goes to a good cause. Last Saturday at eight o’clock he turned on the television and glanced up from his book to check his numbers.
And he won. A big win. A very big win!
‘That’s nice’ he muttered as he switched off the TV and carried on reading where he’d left off.
