Saturday Centus

Was quite kicked about the prompt. The story below is partially true. I told my husband with a letter that read somewhat like this.


It had been 3 days. She was acting quite strange. ‘Is it an affair?” he wondered. Why else would she be smiling, giggling and talking to herself?

The house was still when he walked in. And then he saw the letter. “She’s left,” he thought, picking it up with trembling hands, preparing himself for the worst. It read

Ted, howdy mate? Just wanted to let you know its dark and cozy here. Am really liking it. But don’t worry, I’ll be with you shortly. Love, your 5-week old baby.

She jumped out saying “Surprise, I am pregnant.”

Thank you guys...in real life it took my husband almost five minutes and 10 re-reads to actually realize what the letter meant..."oh you are pregnant" he finally said!
