Bad Flaffy, No Donut for You

She was sure he'd come back. That's why when her friends came over looking sad and held her hand, she just smiled. When they told her to cheer up and come shopping with them, she went shopping with them. She didn't need to cheer up. She knew he'd come back. He'd always liked how clean her house was. How she always made sure the pillow covers matched the duvet. The way her clothes were sorted out by use (daily wear, exercise, office, parties, Indian get-togethers, casual evenings), color (reds, greens and blues - she didn't like oranges and yellows, too bright) and length (shorts, skirts, pants and pjs, ankle skirts, saris). Every day she made up their bed (on both sides), vacuumed her house and made sure there were fresh flowers in the living room vase. Because she knew he'd come back. And imagine if the flowers were faded when he did.

About time we got something new to read. And donuts are incomplete without flour. Awful joke, I know, bear with me, it's 4:30 in the morning.

@ tabula rasa: Do you supppose she'd have really taken him back if he returned? It would have destroyed the great classic tragedy of her life.

@reno: Why were you awake at 4:30 in the first place, kiddo? Tsk!

@tr: Nuh uh.

@smithy: Hahaha. Such vehemence!

And betcha she would have. Women are a lot more practical than we're led to believe, I think.
