9 sentence fiction A new sim card


Mary bought a new sim card for her smart phone.

She thought that she would give her husband, David, a 
surprise.


On reaching home she  saw her husband engrossed in reading a
 news paper.

She put her hand into her bag to take out the phone.


Without lifting his eyes from the paper, David, asked her to
 prepare a cup of coffee for him. 


Mary was disappointed, but she proceeded   to the kitchen.


She kept  water for boiling on the gas.


She  then  dialed her husband and said, “Hi, darling, how are
 you?”


David replied in a whisper, “Hi  Honey, I will call you later, that stupid woman is in the kitchen.”

  4. Oho...thats a double sword :) Who does he think he is talking to, when the phone number itself is new ?? Poor guy, he's mistaken :D :D

    On a serious note, poor Mary, though :( she wanted to surprise him, and she gets a horrible surprise instead.

    Well written, Mam :)
