EM-Drabbles – Forty-Seven

The politician was caught at it again and all the aides and spinners had to think how to make it seem publicly acceptable – again.

“Maybe he’d heard his lost cat had been sighted 250 miles away.”

“Or how about he had a clunk in the car engine so drove 250 miles to check it out?”

The senior spinner scratched his head.

“How about his kid couldn’t sleep so he’d piled the brat in the car? Every parent can relate to that.”

“But 250 miles?”

“So the kid took a bit to drift off.”

“They’ll never buy it.”

But they did.
