Friday Fictioneers — The Moon and the Stars

img_0912.jpg“Have you seen my camera?” Ed asked his wife. “It was on the balcony.”

“Oh,” she said. “The one you use to take pictures of the moon and the stars on the balcony every night?”

Ed was beginning to feel a little anxious. “Um, yeah.”

“It was cloudy last night and I was curious why you spent an hour on the balcony,” she explained. “So I looked at the images in your camera’s memory and found nothing but naked pictures of that woman in the building across the court. So I tossed your camera off the balcony. You understand, right?”

      Thanks. That’s what I was hoping to achieve.

    And the golden rule – never leave the memory card in the camera! 🙂

    Peeping Ed got caught watching his neighbor undressing in her bedroom at night, so it serves him right that his toy is gone.

    Your story made me smile – and frown. I think just about any woman would have seen the neighbour as a serious threat, and wanted reassurance. Tossing the camera off the balcony would not have been enough!

    Oh Ed you silly twit. Careless too, leaving that memory card in place. Funny story.

      Ed should have known better, right?

      Seriously. In more ways than one, too.
