Eighty-five words …

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Bequeath and the limit, 85 words.


My friend Rosey walked into the pub with a strange feathery thing on her head. 

What’s that? I asked stifling a fit of giggles. 

‘Duh, it’s a hat stupid. It was in the box of stuff Gran left me in her will’.

It did look remarkably like the unfortunate pheasant I saw squashed by the roadside that morning.

‘A bereavement bequeathment’ I joked somewhat unwisely.

‘Not funny’ Rosey said, ‘but the frilly undergarments she left me are. Wanna’ peep?’

‘No’, I shouted covering my eyes!

    I saw your title and my first thought was Donald Trump. Then I started reading and thought of my friend’s boyfriend whose toupee looks like roadkill. Thanks for the entertainment.
