Drabble of the Week #21: Large Package

I’m not sure if our Drabble of the Week award goes to Peter for a great piece of fiction, or if it’s perhaps more a nice autobiographical work. Whichever it is, it’s still a great drabble.

Suffice to say, don’t try this at home…or your local Post Service!

Large Package: Contents Unverified by Peter Muscutt

Edwards had persuaded one of his friends to indulge him in his illogical fetish for the postal service. Packaged up in a sturdy box, surrounded by bubble-wrap and with strategically placed holes for ventilation, he had taken similar journeys before, being sent around the country and emerging at his location a couple of days later.

But Edwards’ current postal journey, from Halifax to Taunton with a trusted courier company, went drastically wrong: intercepted by the police, believing it to be a suspicious package, the bomb disposal squad were called in.

Suffice to say, Edwards’ fetish was cut messily short.
