The Daily Prompt:
You walk into your home to find a couple you don’t know sitting in your living room, eating a slice of cake. Tell us what happens next.
I think it is most unmannerly to be an uninvited guest. This has happened to me a few times, but now I have a little gate camera and a high wall, so when the gate bell rings, I look at the camera to see who it is…it is at that moment that I decide if I am home or not. 😉 I know it must sound quite unkind of me, but I am a creature of aloofness most of the time.
Here is a different scenario though. Recently I got up really early because I couldn’t sleep. I tip-toed off to the kitchen in my nightie, no gown, to make some tea. As I entered the lounge I found three sleeping bodies on my couches. Of course, I got a huge fright and tip-toed back to my room very quickly.
I realised that these people must be friends of my eldest daughter who has her own little place on the same property… I phoned her, only to get this really tired voice on the other end. She said they were out very late, and decided it was best if some of the boys/young men slept in the lounge rather than drive home. I felt quite uncomfortable in my own home, but how could I complain when they were being quite sensible?
