Its was a very perilous situation. Denny had forgotten his wife’s birthday! No gift, no card and no plans to take her out to dinner that night. Well he could take her out tonight but her favorite restaurant needed an advanced reservation of at least a week!
What am I going to do? He was asking himself this question again and again. It was almost five o’clock and time to head home. Their home was in the suburbs and there were no Malls nearby where he could shop for the gift and a nice card!
He knew that his wife would be expecting a grand gesture as it was her 30th birthday, a landmark one. He also realized that going home empty-handed would be like stepping into Danger zone. As he was searching wildly in his mind for ideas that would help him in this fix, his phone rang. Distractedly, he answered. On the other end he could hear very excited voice of his friend, Josh.
Hey! guess what! Denny’s friend almost shouted at him.
What! Denny asked.
Not really interested in the conversation and more occupied with his own problems.
Well you won’t be able to guess even if you tried, came, Josh’s exited reply.
Well, I wouldn’t need to guess if you told me, without all this suspense.
The jubilant voice at the other end ,said a sentence that solved all of Denny’s problems!
Fandango FOWC, Danger
I haven’t written an ending to this, though I have one in mind. It is inspired by an episode of Modern Family.
Can you guess which one? Or how would you solve Denny’s problems?
Thanks for read.
