Holiday Calm

by Ken Magee
Originally published by on 06/08/2017

“This holiday’s doing you the world of good,” purred my wife as she stroked my arm lovingly.

“How do you mean?”

“Well, I’m seeing your softer side again.”

“Softer side?”

“Yeah, your angry side seems to be under control which makes you, ahmmm, much more manageable.”

Was it the sunshine, the food, the lack of stress?

I thought about her words. Softer. Under control. More manageable.

I checked the bathroom and realised that for two weeks I’d been mixing up the hair conditioner with the shower gel. Those little bottles all look the same when you’re not wearing your glasses.
