I asked my mate what he thought of my homemade gingerbread men.
“You can’t call them that,” he said, “they’re gingerbread people”.
“You’re right,” I said, “that’s not pc. Anyway, try one.”
I thought he’d jump at the chance, but no, he hesitated.
“What’s the problem?” I asked.
“Well, eating a person doesn’t seem right, I’d feel like a cannibal”.
“They’re biccies, not bodies!” I said.
He moved one closer to his mouth … then stopped.
“No, I can’t bite its head off”.
“Okay, try the dog-shaped one”
“What? You know I don’t eat animals, I’m a vegetarian!”
I gave up!

Tomorrow (Thursday) sees the start of the A-Z Challenge 2021. I will be posting a story every day except Sundays during April. I’ve chosen to write very short amusing pieces based on instruments and their musicians from Accordian to Zither!
