In Other Words — Handmade

6B4C796E-2A6F-481C-B696-6D9DEEC4B42A“We made these ties for you by ourselves for your birthday, Daddy,” his excited daughter said.

“Yeah, Daddy, they’re handmade by us,” his proud son added.

“Thank you so much, kids,” he said.

“Will you wear them at your office tomorrow and the next day?” his daughter asked.

“Of course he will, won’t you dear?” his wife responded, a sly smile on her face.

Written for the In Other Words prompt from Patricia’s Place. The challenge this week is to write a story or poem of five lines or fewer using the word “handmade.”

    And everyone would know your kids made them. You could have a special day at the office where everyone wears something their kids made for them. It would be hilarious.

      No doubt he did…even if his wife made him!

    I made a tie for my Dad once. But then he wore all sorts of fun ties to work. My favorite was a black and white Tazmanian Devil one. Good story!
