Seventy-two words


for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Revenge.





“Don’t you dare”, I said, “I know that look, you’ll regret it!”

She knows she won’t, she always gets away with it.

Yesterday she filled my Oreos with toothpaste. Last night she set my alarm for 4am.

My revenge attempts always fail like when I stretched cling film across the toilet, then used it before her forgetting I’d done it!

Look, a coin on the doorstep. O-oh, she’s superglued it.

“Just you wait!”.

    I love the idea of clear wrap across the toilet. That would be quite a mess if he hadn’t forgotten and used it first LOL!

    Brilliant – and the cling-film jape, my daughter did that years ago on me on the morning of Aril’s fools day – not pleasant I can tell you!! 🙂

    One would have to be insane to even think of desecrating an Oreo cookie with toothpaste!

    Some of us are just born so. I was not. My daughter was. She drives me nuts. 🙂
