I enjoy making quirky and kind observations about other peopleand about places. I write short word sketches about certain situations that feel significant to me, I draw little cartoons. I reflect on particular t.v programmes, films and books as they grab my interest

A unique twist on this prompt. I like sending the package to the future 🙂
July 20, 2020 at 6:52 pm
Thank you, so glad you like the story.Guess I felt that the ‘message’ was about the future.
July 17, 2020 at 3:56 pm
I mean, really, who opens a package without double-checking the label??? 😉
July 20, 2020 at 6:55 pm
Thanks for your comment.
July 20, 2020 at 8:03 pm
🙂 You’re welcome. Was a good piece!
July 17, 2020 at 3:00 pm
I agree with Rochelle and C.E., get return ticket through Prime, put them all back in the box and send it back.
July 20, 2020 at 7:00 pm
Thanks for your comment.

Very inventive! 🙂

Future? Sounds like another typical day for this year, 2020…
July 20, 2020 at 7:49 pm
Good point Trent !
July 16, 2020 at 5:08 pm
And I dunno about Mimi and Ben but I’d check the labels BEFORE opening… then again, it would have been too tempting not to open it, wouldn’t it? Good one, Francine!
July 20, 2020 at 7:55 pm
Thanks Dale, I appreciate your comment. It’s tempting to open a new parcel, especially if its in a weird shaped box !!
July 20, 2020 at 11:45 pm
Especially so… 🙂
July 16, 2020 at 12:13 pm
Time to get on the phone to Amazon.
Or Ghost Busters?

Thanks ceayr, l like your comment.

Sounds like a hallucination to me! What are they on?
July 20, 2020 at 8:01 pm
Malevolence I think Keith !!!
July 16, 2020 at 10:21 am
Oh no! The future looks bleak 🙁 What an imaginative take!
July 20, 2020 at 8:07 pm
Thank you Joy. I’m glad you liked the story.
July 16, 2020 at 5:10 am
Double-checking those labels from now on. Not anything I would want to open. Hoping by the time we get there it will be something different inside.
July 20, 2020 at 8:11 pm
Thanks for your comment Jade. A box full of supernatural malice I think !
July 20, 2020 at 9:01 pm
You are welcome.

I’ve been surprised by a couple of deliveries recently, but not that surprised!
July 20, 2020 at 8:18 pm
Thanks for your comment Ali. I’m surprised sometimes by the weird shaped boxes that deliveries come in. No clue as to what’s inside.
July 16, 2020 at 3:27 am
Serious mischief in a box. Well done!
July 21, 2020 at 10:35 am
Thank you — glad you liked the story.
July 16, 2020 at 2:09 am
Ooops! Perhaps I’ll start paying more attention to packages that come to the house. I’m definitely losing track.
July 21, 2020 at 10:38 am
Thanks Alicia. In lockdown I’ve definitely lost track of some things.
July 15, 2020 at 7:25 pm
Good one. This would make a great opening scene for the start of a good movie.
July 21, 2020 at 10:43 am
Aww thanks Ted, what a lovely comment.
July 15, 2020 at 7:06 pm
I think that’s a parcel I’d return to sender. Although I don’t suppose that delivery would go back into the box. 😉 Imaginative tale.
July 21, 2020 at 10:49 am
Thanks Rochelle I appreciate your comment. I agree, don’t think that unruly lot would go back in the box. What would you write on the Returns Slip ?
July 15, 2020 at 6:21 pm
Beware of parcels you do not remember ordering.
July 21, 2020 at 10:59 am
Thanks for your comment Gabriella. So true.
July 15, 2020 at 4:56 pm
I loved the smell of the hobgoblins
July 21, 2020 at 11:03 am
Thanks so much Neil, I imagined that was what they smelled like.
July 15, 2020 at 4:27 pm
July 21, 2020 at 11:06 am
Thank you Crispina.
July 15, 2020 at 3:41 pm
I’m never opening a parcel unless I’m sure it’s something I ordered! 😉
July 21, 2020 at 11:08 am
How sensible Iain. In these weird times it could be anything ….
