The Safest Savings
“Oh no! Where is it!” Edwina worried as she scanned the bookshelves.
Brexit had managed to obviate her bank account. But Edwina was canny, she’d hidden some savings.
The money was now so safe even she couldn’t find it.
She rifled through many romance, science and travelogue books.
“It’s hopeless! Like finding a particular balloon in a party warehouse!”
A feline growl emanated from the bookshelf as ’The Wealthy Barber’ crashed back into place.
Zaza the tawny cat shook her head. Deciding to help she nosed ‘Sapiens’ onto the floor spilling wads of cash.
Edwinna grinned, ‘Thank heavens for a witches cat.’
Have you ever hidden money in a strange place to keep it safe and maybe lost it? Why not share in the comments for fun?
