Flash Fiction # 269

SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

Ten in the bed, and the little one said, “Roll over!  Roll over.”
They all rolled over, and one fell out.

We started with a double bed.  I don’t like the word “Obese.” Good eating made us corpulent, so we bought a Queen-sized.

We had a dog, which was not allowed on the bed, then we got two puppies who were allowed up, but are no longer puppies.  Recently, a cold and lonely cat has added himself to the nightly pile.

There’s hardly room for my legs, and it’s almost impossible to roll over.  Somebody move, before I fall out.

    Happy families and their pets usually get taken over by their emotions.

    It’s funny how the older we get we more we need. I had a single bed as a teenager, a full size when newly married. A queen now, and am thinking about a king for the next purchase.

    Aw… There’s plenty of room! But yeah, the human might need their own bed too. 😉
