Dreams that didn’t come true

Lord Humphrey, his wife and his daughter had just crossed the courtyard and disappeared in to their flat. He had hoped to ask for Miss Humphrey’s hand. Unfortunately they left without having dinner and he did not get a chance to mellow them with coffee and liquors.

Everything had been all right till they walked into the dining room. What had gone wrong?

He glanced at the dining table and thinking of the lost opportunity ………. and suddenly the light reflected off the plates appeared uneven. On a closer examination he detected the unwashed grease on the plates.

  1. That might do it, alright, if nothing more than make them decline dinner. Yuk!

    You could use a few commas in that first sentence, “Lord Humphrey, his wife ,and daughter, had just crossed…) 🙂


  2. Nobody, especially Lords, wants to eat at a greasy spoon.

    Cute story… maybe he’ll get a second chance, though you know what they say about first impressions.

    I believe in forgiveness, though, and a free meal.

  3. Whoever washes his dishes had made a bad mistake. They need a lot more training or to be fired. He needs to check on them in future. Perhaps it was for the best though. That’s a family that has expensive needs. Well done Yarnspinnerr. 🙂 — Suzanne

  4. Dear Yarnspinner, Great story and too bad he doesn’t have a dishwasher. Oh well, maybe next time use paper plates, but they were rude for leaving so abruptly, in my opinion. Good job! Nan 🙂

I love arguments
