Daffodil Disaster

Welcome to Magpie Tales #7--I can't believe it's Tuesday already!


"I'm afraid there's been some kind of mix-up, Madam."

"How on earth could there be a "mix-up" in an entire field, Jasper?"

"I'm afraid I may have shopped in the bulk bins, Madam, in order to keep expenses down--what with the recent Financial Unpleasantness at the Manor, Madam."

"I thought you were told not to speak of the Unpleasantness, Jasper.  Anyway, what gardener can't tell the difference between hyacinth and daffodil bulbs? That's what I'd like to know."

"It was an unfortunate, large-scale error on my part. But if I might say so, it should be remembered that I was trained as an accountant and financial analyst, Madam."

"You were aware, were you not, that the mere sight of yellow flowers of any type gives me migraine?"

"Yes, Madam. The daffodils must be most offensive to your sensibilities."

"I'll say! Well, don't just stand there! For heaven's sake, pull them all up! I tell you, you'd be out on your ear this minute if you weren't my brother!"

How do you do it? So much story in dialogue. LOVE it!
And super funny, too. Being the oldest I totally understand. I sometimes treat my brothers as my help.

Hyacinth are so much nicer than daffodils :).

It's always the brother. At least it is mine.

Peter Goulding said...

Oh very funny! The idea of calling your sister Madam, the mistake in planting a whole field, the instructions to pull them all up!

Hello there! I just dropped by to let you know that you have an award on my blog. Drop by and pick it up if you'd like. :)

Ha, ha, ha. SO loved the "mistake" leave it up to a disgruntled accountant, gardener, who just happens to be a sibling.
