The Rise & Fall of Reverend Bert – Friday Fictioneers.

“Persistence might be a virtue, Reverend,” the doctor pontificated. “But NOT when you’re riding that contraption around town saving souls with a crook appendix! The great unsaved can wait!”

“We’re getting you walking today. The nurses will assist.”

“I can walk on my own two feet, thank you,” the Reverend replied, jumping out of bed and crashing to the floor, unsupported by his jelly legs.

“Let me help you up, Father” she beamed.

It was the first time he’d seen the pretty nurse.

“Oh no! I’m not a priest,” he replied, smitten. “It’s okay.  We’re allowed to get married.”

    Good one… funny. He just might rethink his need to run away so quick. I mean, after all, he hasn’t had his sponge bath yet, has he…. LOL! 🙂 ❤

    Thank you very much. I’m pleased you enjoyed it. The story was based on a the true story of how my grandfather ended up almost dying from a burst appendix. That wasn’t how he met my grandmother, but he told that story many times and how his legs had stopped working and he had two pretty nurses to help him walk. You can so easily forget your grandparents were young once! xx Rowena
