What kind of present is that?

Tess passed over a large wrapped box. ‘Okay, guess!’

It was surprisingly heavy.

‘So this is something you wanted that you bought for yourself for me to give to you?’ Ron asked.


‘So shouldn’t you be opening it?’

‘What would the fun in that be? Guess.’

‘A bread-maker.’


‘A coffee machine?’

‘Open it!’

Ron ripped the paper free and opened the box.

‘Tins of paint. What kind of present is that?’

‘Well, you’ll be doing the painting.’


‘Well, I’ll be looking after junior while you paint the box room.’ She rubbed her belly.

‘Now that’s a present!’

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

Oh, I like this one, Rob. What a way to tell a man he's to be a father!
