Six Sentence Stories
I only got half of the voice mail because I forgot to charge my phone and later when I did, I stupidly deleted the message and…well, you get the point.
I was invited to one of those battle recreations where grown men put on imitation suits of armour and play soldiers. I got as far as finding out when it was happening, where it was happening, what time it was happening, that there was no entry charge, and then…nothing.
I wasn’t however expecting to be given a Roman outfit and a plastic spear as soon as I arrived; I assumed I was to be an audience member not a bloody participant!
I joined the hoard of other soldiers and shook in my boots as we faced the enemy, then when the command to charge echoed across the field I found myself being unwillingly carried along, seconds later to be poked in the eye by one of the clumsy foe’s weapons.
You know what, I think this eye patch suits me and it would look perfect with a pirate’s costume!
