For this weeks Flash!Friday our themes were based on Alice in Wonderland. I chose to go with (wo)man vs logic and nonsense as my themes this week. I kind of used the optional photo prompt, at least in spirit 🙂

Grandma in La-la-land

“I’ve popped over to see Grandma and I think she’s having one of her episodes again.”
“What makes you say that?”
“She’s in the garden with her head jammed in a rabbit hole, shouting about being late for a date. Considering Grandpa’s been dead for five years I’m not exactly sure who she’s going out with, but apparently he lives underground.”

“Oh dear, that doesn’t sound good. Has she asked about the cat yet?”
“Cat? I haven’t seen a cat.”
“Apparently it’s invisible. If she mentions it just tell her it ran away. She made us all search for hours to try and find the darn thing. It got so bad I almost borrowed Mr. Whiskers from next door just to make her stop.”

“Ok, got it, don’t mention cats. Anything else I should know?”
“Yeah, hide the hat stand. Last time we popped by she’d dragged it into the kitchen and was having a tea party with it. It was completely mad.”

“Have you ever tried snapping her out of it? I could get out the playing cards, that always cheers her up.”
“Trust me, don’t do that. We tried that before and she absolutely lost it when I played the Queen of hearts. She started running around, threatening to chop off our heads!”

“Erm, I’m going to have to call you back.”
“Why? What’s happened now?”
“She’s cramming handfuls of wild mushrooms in her mouth and wobbling around on her knees pretending she’s tiny!”

“Might be time to put her in a home…”
“You think!”
