On the John Murray show today on RTE Radio 1, they opened a competition to receive two tickets for Listowel Writers Festival plus accommodation. Here is my entry…..in 200 words ‘A funny thing happened to me…..’
A funny thing happened to me on a Ryanair Flight to Bristol
I had my two kids with me, my sister and her daughter. Like any mother I was last to get packed and didn’t get to shave the legs or use the false tan. When we all boarded the plane I got the kids seated and started to put away the numerous bags in the overhead luggage.
I reached down to pull up my red linen trousers which were a bit lose – I couldn’t feel them.
I reached down a few inches more – still no trousers.
Time stood still, I looked down – they were perfectly collapsed in a neat circle. Three passengers beside me were in a state of collapse. Unable to speak they nudged each other and pointed at me!
I ran to my seat . ‘Did you see that poor woman whose trousers fell down?’ my sister said.
‘That was me’ I whispered with one hand over my mouth.
I called my husband and he roared laughing ‘Only you, only you!! Did anyone film it? I could be watching your arse on YouTube right now!’ I then broke out in a cold sweat.
