Thursday Threads You Have Got To Be Kidding Me

The story below won an honorable mention from the judge Scot Roahrig for Thursday Threads Number 69; You have Got To Be Kidding Me.

Thursday Threads hosted by is here with the prompt of "You have got to be kidding me" incorporated into the story. For more stories, please visit The Weird, the Wild and the Wicked where you will find judging details and a rather dishy pic of a fireman.  

“How are you celebrating finishing your probation?” Sergeant Cole asked Adam as they walked up the gravel drive.

“Not sure it’s a celebration; meeting the in-laws tonight.” He rang the door bell and almost immediately the front door opened. “You have got to be kidding me” Adam muttered as his eyes were assaulted by the woman in front of him; a skimpy negligee with an ample bosom spilling out.
Adam thought it a wind up but soon dismissed this when his skipper looked just as bemused.  

Trying to take the report was impossible as the woman seemed more interested in him rather than her stolen belongings as she ruffled his hair playfully and flirted outrageously.  

“Do you know how old I am?” she asked teasingly. Adam shook his head, looking down at his notebook.“Fifty-eight!”  She twirled round, purposefully falling into Adam. Sergeant Cole sniggered. “My secret is young men like you.” She winked.

Finally getting what he needed, Adam left feeling flustered and very red in the face. It wasn’t a call he would be allowed to forget in a hurry and it was with relief when his shift was finally over.

“Meeting your parents will be a breeze after the day I've had” admitted Adam, walking into the restaurant. Lisa smiled, kissing him affectionately. “You have got to be kidding me” Adam uttered for the second time that day as Lisa’s mother blanched.

“Mum 'n' dad were burgled today.” Lisa offered innocently.

“I know” was all Adam could say.
