Molly believes in doing little things to keep her marriage fresh, like today, for example. Without comment, she drops the plain white envelope next to the half-full bowl of raisin bran.
Between bites, Liam opens the envelope and unfolds the papers. “What is this? Test results? For a prototype?”
Molly goes to stand behind him, eyes going wide. Oh no.
Meanwhile, on the other side of town, a very confused lab tech stares at two free Roller Derby tickets. Not what he was expecting but, hey.

The moral is always double check when you’re multitasking
Oops … I smell goblin mischief. … 😉
Oh dear… What a horrid mistake!
Very well-conceived and executed story.
Well, it could have been worse!
Oops. At least it wasn’t a letter to her lover. 😉 Well done and gave me a chuckle.
Haha, at least it was a relatively innocuous surprise. Good story, made me laugh.
I loved this story, Anne. I’ll bet Molly likes Roller Derby. I do too. In the late 60’s I promoted Roller Derby shows in Sacramento. I was knew Joanie Weston, the Roller Derby Queen with the Bay Bombers. When they played Sacto they always won, of course. Those were fun times. I have a photo of us together somewhere.
p.s. your story brought back a nice memory. And, isn’t that one of the nice things about reading stories?
Hahaha good one !
