My Entry: ‘THE JAMMIE DODGER TREE’ (149 words)
Archie Pickle firmly believed that a good day started with a pair of galoshes and a runcible spoon. Spring was springing and he had work to do before it was sprung.
“I’m planting a Jammie Dodger tree!” He dug a hole in the lawn and surrendered one of his favourite tea-dunkers. Watering it generously, he tapped the soil with his sole, marvelling at a job well done.
That night, the next-door neighbour twitched her curtains, grumbling to her long-suffering husband.
“That crackpot Pickle woman is digging up her front garden.”
“It’s two a.m.!”
“Any sane person would be in bed!”
Next morning, Archie shimmied on his galoshes and raced outside. A glorious, jamilicious treat-laden tree had sprung up.
Mrs Pickle gazed at the delicious wonder. “It’s magic,” she sighed.
Archie rolled his eyes, pointing at the spoon and the watering can. “It’s not magic, mum. It’s science.”
