Maurice and Simone had been dating for several weeks although they had not yet met in person. They had hit it off wonderfully but were amazed at how they were complete opposites.
Maurice, a farm boy, still running the family homestead; Simone, the city girl who gave guided tours of the castle overlooking Apremont-sur-Allier.
The usual banter became more serious on the eve of their first “real” date when Simone had gone so far as to tell Maurice that she wouldn’t mind having a roll in the hay with him. The next day, Maurice negotiated his wagon through the narrow streets worrying if he had brought enough with him.

    I think he may be stocked up for quite a few months there. Made me smile. 🙂

    Brilliant set up for your city mouse/country mouse tale, (HA! MOUSE. TALE.) and the payoff was perfect.

    Dear Patricia,

    This left me laughing. Methinks the farm boy might be in for an education. Bravo!

    Funny stuff!! Puns can be difficult to play off of without sounding cheesy, but you did a chuckle-worthy job. Nice!
