Sixty-one words

For Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt  where the given word is Bandage




I thought I’d go to the fancy-dress party as an Egyptian ‘Daddy’.

I wrapped myself from head to toe in yards of bandage with just a gap for my eyes and a little hole for a drinking straw.

It was all going well until I wanted to use the toilet which was when I realised I hadn’t thought it through properly!.’

    LOL. I recently read a book that mentioned that in Victorian times women did not wear underpants because the fit of the tight corset, that came down past the hips, would not allow for their removal for toilet visits. Who knew?

    “The best laid plans of mice and man…” There’s usually something we didn’t factor in. Well told in 61 words.

    That’ll be a mistake you’re unlikely to repeat, eh?

    I have faced the costume disrobing challenge several times. I never learned to leave a flap in the back. Fun story, Keith.
