Turned Out Well

She was never big on plans.

It drove her parents mad, but her impromptu projects did turn out well more times than they did bad.

So they said nothing when she began digging a hole in the backyard.

And weren’t sad

When gold was found

Amidst the sand.

  1. You did really well putting that story story together in 48 minutes. Well done.
    I wish we could find gold in our backyard. All we seem to find is old beer bottles, and we’re careful to avoid where our beloved family pets have been laid to rest.
    Best wishes,

    • Yeah, no risk of my finding any gold (or buried pets) in my backyard, because I don’t even got one … 😉 … living in an apartment in the middle of a crowded city … But, my sister and I did once want to dig a swilling pool in our backyard (we were very young and evidentially very bored on summer break … ). Let’s just say that the project remained quite superficial … 😉
