Sweet Bribe

Ducks! he yelled.
What ?
They ate my lunch.
Why did you feed them our food?
It’s not intentional, they just ate it.
The duck from the pond left their fishes and ate bread?
You think I’m making a story?
Yes you are, you came home after years of service to the nation, and this is what you do? lie to your wife?
She and her bread… he murmured
What?
It tasted good!
So you shared them? right?
Honey! forget it, how about these french fries, chicken wings.
I hate Bribes, but, it’s sweet!
No! it’s spicy! (Giggles), that’s sweet.

  1. Ah now the mystery just intensifies 😂😂

    But good! I like this one better👍
    Makes you wonder about who the husband shared the bread with. The ducks? Or maybe another woman? 😝

  2. Yes! My aunt’s still have it ☺️ Yes! they eat food. I thought the ducks from the water won’t be distracted for a plate of food when they have plenty of fish under water 😅 Maybe next time, I’ll remember your question 😄. Thanx for asking Chel 🤗
