This week for Sacha’s #Writespiration Challenge, we have got to write about what happened when we ignored the KEEP OUT sign. Of course it has to be done in EXACTLY 52 words.
The sign on the door was foreboding
It said in large letters KEEP OUT
What was the mystery behind it
I really had to find out
I grabbed hold of the door knob
prepared for an assault on my eyes
The immaculate room I saw before me
Gave me a pleasant surprise!
Having a teenaged daughter means that her room is very often a ‘no-go zone.’ There are clothes all over the place, not to mention crumbs, empty wrappers books and other odds and ends.
My daughter does not have to do any housework, but I do insist that she does her room herself as it gets into a mess so quickly. The problem is, her tolerance for untidiness is so much higher than mine and I have to resist the urge to go in there and sort it out.
However, over the weekend, there was much banging and crashing, and moving about of furniture. She was finally mucking it out! Several bin bags, a huge pile of washing and the sound of the vacuum cleaner bashing against walls meant that it was finally safe to open the door!
