B&B ~ Crimson’s Creative Challenge

‘Hi Cheryl. I’ve got great news, but I know you’re going to say no.”
“What do you mean ‘say no’, I don’t say no to everything.”
“Well, it seems like you do. Sometimes, before I even say what it is.”
“For starters, Ethel, sometimes you beat around the bush so much getting to the point, it’s easier to say no right off the bat and save all that time.”
“I don’t always beat around the bush.”
“Bullet points, Ethel, bullet points.”
“Okay, you know how much we liked watching Downton Abbey? Highclere Castle is now a bed and breakfast.”
“No!”

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #50

Every Wednesday Christina Kemp posts a photo prompt. Write a story or whatever you want to do based on the photo. Word limit 150. Ethel & Cheryl usually only take 100.

HIGHCLERE CASTLE AND AIRBNB  (Highclere Castle has been fully booked, so you and Ethel are out of luck)

  1. This is so fabulously funny, Ted! I love it so much. 😍

  2. Nice one. I hope you enjoy the stay! And that Ethel doesn’t say No to too many things 🙂

  3. I wouldn’t put it past ’em. The upkeep on those old castles must be phenomenal, and I am sure weirder paths have been traveled in effort to finance them. Nice write Ted.

  4. I got the email sharing this news! I’ve added staying at Highclere to my bucket list!

  5. Well so much for that. I’d love to know who beats more around the bush between the two?
