Friday, and for us the first day of the Easter Weekend. As its a long weekend I think the weekend theme should be a little longer than usual. As is so often the case an earlier exchange has given me the theme.
Kate Shrewsday posted about a maze, and how disappointing the centre was. I postulated that it actually has a trapdoor to an alternate reality.
So here is the start to the theme:
We reached the centre of the maze, somewhat disappointed that it appeared little different from the rest of the maze. Just a small wooden post with a bronze plaque stating “this is the centre, you now have two choices”. But the was no explanation of what the choices were. Find our way out, stay and starve to death? Maybe those were them, but the lack of skeletons indicated no-one else seemed to have taken the second one.
I looked down, that shoelace had come undone again. These were the most obnoxious laces, always coming undone, even from a double knot. Anyone would think they were alive and seeking freedom.
As I was tying the lace I noticed an odd shape in the ground, a portion of a circle. I kicked at it and the friable soil moved away, disclosing a brass ring, attached by another ring to the round. Some more kicking away of the soil disclosed a wooden trapdoor.
We looked at each other. I said “do you suppose this is the second choice?”
Now finish the tale…….
