MFtS-Life of Riley

“Now this is living the life of Riley,” Tara giggled as she petted her kitty, Fluffy, the queen of the house. Fluffy moved onto her back so she could get some tummy scratches.

Tara turned to her husband and cooed, “Let's take that cruise we have been talking about. I'm ready to have a life of Riley for awhile too.”

David laughed, “You already live a life of Riley,” he folded the paper he was reading as he teased his wife.

Tara eyed her husband angrily and retorted, “Tomorrow, you start cleaning the house and cooking the meals.”

David laughed nervously, “Alright, alright sweetie. We will take that vacation.”

  1. “Tomorrow, you start cleaning the house and cooking the meals.”
    Thank you for bringing smile on my face πŸ™‚
    Succinct but well written piece of fiction!

  2. Ha, ha, I’m leaving on vacation tomorrow, but last week after I made the reservations hubby called to tell me we might have to cancel. I told him no way or I was going by myself. He made sure he could get the time off, he is the boss, after all! Great story!
    Sorry I haven’t been participating, too many other obligations, but I’ll be back soon!

  3. So that’s how to get a vacation cruise. I like your style! I agree with the other comments I just want to rub the cat’s belly, it looks so content.

  4. He’ll rather book the cruise than to do housework! LOL! So cute! I wonder if they can bring their cat along for cruise. πŸ™‚

  5. Cute story! Housework is a real motivator for him to book that cruise! I have a feeling…He..likes living the “life of riley” and would like to continue doing so! πŸ™‚

I would love to read your thoughts...
