“Honey I am ready”
“Well I am not”
“We are gonna be late for the family dinner”
“Well I am not instant noodle that I will be ready in 2 minutes. We females have a lot to do just to ensure that your dignity is maintained”
“My dignity maintained? And hows is that?”
“Just be being seen with a pretty lady like me”

So Mr. Cuttlefish waited by the main gate for Mrs. Cuttlefish to be ready and come out. He waited and waited and…

Guess the wait was a bit longer than what he expected.


A bit under workload – so about 5 hours behind when I planned to put the entry up. However this is the story which got stuck in my head as soon as I saw the prompt!

Written for Friday Fictioneers hosted by ever graceful Rochelle !

  1. LOL. Mr. Cuttlefish was not netted by another…


  2. Ha.. I think that was a long wait.


  3. Very funny. My husband will appreciate. I think you have an extra I in the noodle sentence.


    • Errr – now that you mentioned, I guess this might have come out as a male perspective ! And I tried playing around with that “I” you mentioned – but still not sure if it should stay or go !

  4. I used to keep my husband waiting for ages, too. He nearly didn’t, one time, and I learned my lesson. Cute story.


  5. A lady’s gotta do what a lady’s gotta do to get ready. Next time, Mr. Cuttlefish might want to take a little snack along while he waits. Fun story, thanks for the chuckle.


  6. Time certainly did pass. A fun write.


  7. Very cute.
    The story needs a little grammar work, though. You need commas after “Honey” and “Well” in the first ,second, and fourth line.
    In line six, “how’s” needs the apostrophe and delete the “is”, or vice versa.
    All of your sentences need periods.


  8. That’s very funny!


  9. Poor Mr Cuttlefish. I’d have gone without her.
