Lying Little Red Riding Hood in specs #2


The woman’s daughter, Gertrude, was called Little Red Riding Hood by all the neighbours in the hamlet. Gertie was extremely unhappy about the red cloak but agreed after her mother made it reversible, with pink on the inside… that plus a bribe of a large bucket of chocolates. And the frames of the spectacles Gertie wore, on account of her short-sightedness, were pink too.

One morning her mother said to Little Red Riding Hood. “Please take this basket of goodies over to your Granny, otherwise she’ll only moan and groan to her neighbours again that I’m a crap daughter.”
