SPF: Forgetful

158 05 May 29th 2016

It had been going on all week. Some kind of conspiracy was happening to me which my husband was part of. It was very disconcerting, to say the least, but there was absolutely no other explanation for his odd behaviour.

I was going to have to look on Google and see if there was anything that would be able to explain it. I know that I was ill, but surely there was nothing wrong in wanting to treat yourself with a pie?

Every night this week he had returned from work and claimed that he had forgotten to go to the shop to pick up the pies I had ordered. This was something I should probably have ordered online to get it delivered. Sadly, I had relied on John.

Stupid cancer. It was ruining all of my fun.

When he came home that night to tell me that he had once again forgotten to pick them up I decided that I was going to take action. I wasn’t able to get far from the house without getting really tired, but I made sure the message was left where he would definitely see it.

John would not forget my pies tomorrow.

  1. Still say sending a text would be easier…lol.

    As an aside I think the beginning would be snappier without the repetition of “going on” i.e “It had been going on all week: some kind of conspiracy, of which my husband was part.”

    1. I will have to say that maybe the chemotherapy was playing with her thinking and she did not think about sending a text message!
      I will have a look at and wording 🙂 Thanks for reading.


      1. Yeh, that’s better.

        BTW I hope you don’t mind me giving you the odd crit. It’s just that if we can all help each other be better writers, why not? Repetition can be good, if it serves a purpose, otherwise it may well ruin a decent section of writing.
