Before I tell you about the next story I need to share a few things. First to quote Terry Pratchett,
“A marriage is always made up of two people who are prepared to swear that only the other one snores.”
Second, despite what a certain person claims, I did NOT write this as revenge, I was just inspired.
Definitely not a revenge story.
And yes, I do know what a heavy cold and a medicinal night cap can do.
For three nights running.
Having cleared that up, the story…I’ve called this one “Hush a Bye”, from the old traditional lullaby, the scary one about hanging a baby in a tree and waiting for enough wind to send it crashing to the ground. Don’t believe me?
“Hush a bye baby, on the tree top.
When the wind blows the cradle will rock;
When the bow breaks, the cradle will fall,
And down will come baby, cradle and all.”
And the story? Well, that is all about a hard pressed woman who answers an advert offering help with her husband’s nocturnal reverberations.
