After a Long Day
“Do you want to come with me?”
It was six o’clock in the morning and I was preparing to leave the house for a day of job hunting.
“No thanks. Look outside. It is raining. I’m staying in bed. “
When I returned in the afternoon Pomi was awaiting me with a smile.
“Rome wasn’t built in a day, you know.”
My little crochet guy gave me a disapproving look.
“I didn’t know you were going to build Rome.”
“It’s just an expression”, I sank into the sofa.
“You look exhausted. Let me run you a bath.” Pomi said.
He disappeared and I heard him puttering around in the bathroom. Then there was a boom. I jumped up.
“What happened? Are you alright?”
“Nothing happened and of course I’m alright”, Pomi grinned. “I dropped the bath bomb into the water. And there it is.” He pointed into the tub.
