Bunt

23 Mar

Hannah was up especially early to begin setting up the street party

“These will be just perfect for the jubilee! All we need now is to hoist the Union jack.”

Her friend looked on cynically, his low black hat tilted forward despite the warm June morning.

“Union flag.” He said. She attempted to ignore him.

“And look, there’s pictures of the royal family on the bunting! There’s Prince Harry, the Prince of Wales, Princess Katharine…”

“Princess William.” He interjected again.

“Stop it will you? I’m getting so sick of your constant pedanticness.”

Pedantry.

A commemorative plate whistled past his head.

This drabble is very pleasing. 100 words and 500 characters exactly. Super-drabble?

Also, the pedantic friend was partially inspired by Black Hat from XKCD.com, you should check it out…

    I believe there’s also a Princess Michael. Makes me chuckle every time…

    Like the touch about the commemorative plate whistling past his head : )

    I suspect that even had the plate hit him, he would have criticized its angle of attack.
