He forgot to zip

But he had some nerve on him, the naughty fellow. (The Senryu challenge).

He forgot to zip

Drunk, parks in driveway

Garage clicker, front door. Click?

Wife opens, pouts, sighs

...........................................

Left garage open

Thirsty, place keys in freezer

Fell asleep on couch

............................................

Thieves cleaned out garage

Police shake heads. Sir, next time

Park in your garage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

.................................................

Where are the car keys?

Wife sighed, headed for the fridge

She knows him quite well

.................................................

He forgot to zip

She pointed. He laughed, wiggled.

She grinned, shook her head.

After twenty years

She knows him well, embraces

Knowing his snafus.

    Oh nO! What a snafu! πŸ‘β˜ΊοΈ Hey Novel, just letting you know Rick has messaged you about your word count for his challenge on messenger. Hope you are going well and having a great day! 😊

  • Images of Red Skelton come to mind, where such behavior does not offend but remains endeared.
