The Sound of Music - Magpie Tales # 31

http://magpietales.blogspot.com hosts a weekly writing prompt, write a small vignette or poem using the photo below as your inspiration.



As she walked up the path she could see the window.
Her heart sank.
She let herself in and walked slowly up the stairs
the Sound of Music filling the air.
She opened the door and there he was
in full nun regalia with a smile emblazoned on his face.

She sighed and shook her head

"NO .... I'm not going to see it again
                  why can't you just like football like other husbands!

I should think any musical would get tired after awhile. I like the irony, as most wives wish their husbands might turn off the football and listen to a musical once in awhile.
