BOXERS - a 100 word story

 BOXERS


Jackie had her life sorted out – husband, two children, a nice home – until That Woman started work at his office.

It was suspicious enough when he started showering every day rather than a quick wash, and going out for lunch instead of taking sandwiches, but buying new underwear to attend a conference was a dead give-away – did he think she was too stupid to notice?

She knew his habits too well. She also knew his weaknesses.

Boxer shorts washed with peanut oil would ruin his weekend.

I am late on parade this week, and even today I am just squeezing this blog in between taking an old Acer Tablet to the school to be given to a disadvantaged home-schooling pupil, and going to my daughter's house to celebrate my granddaughter's 6th birthday. AND before anyone reports me to the Covid-Stazi, they're a single parent family and we are their support bubble!

Thanks to Rochelle for the photo prompt - I wonder if her desk is always this tidy?
