A silly little story for this week’s The Sunday Muse!

The devil has angels too you know. 

Take sweet little Sally for example. One of her favourite days is the first of May, Pinch Bum Day! Bend over in front of her at your peril!

Cute Connie loves April Fool’s day. Last year she unscrewed the shower head and placed a beef stock cube inside, her Dad showered with gravy!

One Halloween, joker Jonnie unrolled a toilet roll, drew a big spider on one sheet with a black marker pen and rolled it back up again, You should have heard his Mummy scream!

Which reminds me, saucy Sue once crept upstairs to her Granddad’s bedroom when he was having his afternoon nap, and used a marker pen to draw a moustache on his face. Unfortunately, it was an indelible pen and it took days to wash away!

O-oh! Here comes Pete with his parents. The last time they were here the little devil put bubble wrap under my doormat! Now it’s my turn, I’ve replaced the cream in some Oreos with toothpaste!

Everyone thought my ex was an angel. Well, she could fly, but not with wings, she used a broomstick! She had sessions with the devil on how to become more evil. I don’t know how much she charged him!

    I like your ex flying, with a broom. Mine flew also, but in a different way.

      That’s so kind of you Carrie. I often wish others would find something amusing in what they see.

      That is one of my favourite pranks! I almost used it in my story, but it was mentioned in one I wrote a few months back so I decided against it!

    Love the laughs! This makes me wonder whether our collie is smart enough to know that his hair can look like a spider in the dark…

    Seldom does a Muse piece bring so much laughter! Loved each of your snippets.

    Brilliant Keith so made me laugh – re the marker pen trick my daughter and I did that on hubby a few years back when he had fallen asleep on the sofa – the best bit was he went to the local shop when he woke up and hadn’t looked in the mirror – well we laughed – not so much him at the time 🙂
