100 word challenge – this week’s prompt is … the suitcase lay open …


We were taking a trip for our silver anniversary and as it turned out, for our eldest daughter’s engagement party. With a parent from each side of the world and dual passports, she’d moved to Sydney four years earlier.

“Mum, can you bring a few things over for me, please?”
“Of course.”
“Great, just the electronic drum kit and didge.”

The suitcase lay open ….. surrounded by clothes, shoes, metal scaffold, drum pads, kick pedal. Oh.

Who takes an original didgeridoo back into Australia? And a drum kit in bits?
The customs guy just laughed at us and waved us through.
