Flash Fiction #145

Watch My Tongue

Well, their trip to London had been worth the saving, and every dollar they’d spent. They’d enjoyed the Harry Potter Experience, ridden on the London Eye Skywheel, watched the changing of the Guard, scarfed down real fish and chips, drunk full-bodied (if room-temperature) British ale, played darts, and met some really nice people.

Perhaps not worth every dollar….  Somebody at AirBnB was going to get an earful.  Their broom-closet lodgings didn’t look anything like the grand, airy rooms that she’d viewed online. Caveat emptor – ‘buyer beware’ indeed – somebody else would beware after they got the side of her tongue.

The late Archon was a little busy last week with the wife in hospital for three days, and then in recovery from her second knee-replacement surgery. Too late to attach this attempt to last week’s group output, I still thought it was worthwhile to publish.  There may be another one in a couple of days.  Please stop back then to see.  😀

    My sister and her family booked an AirBnB in Greece… only to find out it was at the top of a so steep hill that the van they rented could not make it up. No way they were lugging their luggage by hand so they managed to fight and got their money back (Through Amex – which will in turn fight AirBnB…)
    Hope your wife’s recovery is going well!

      It’s nice to save money, but….lodgings on mountain-tops, sexual assault from Uber drivers??! Sometimes it pays to purchase the extended warrantee. 😳
      Wife’s recovery this time is not as quick and easy as the last time. Her left knee has some previous injury/damage. Still, she’s moving. Thanx for the concern. 😀

        I agree… I did AirBnB in Tuscany – but just a room with the owners present. I promised myself next time I would take the whole apartment but now I’m just not so sure…
        Hope her movements only get better 🙂
