Here’s my second go at Friday Fictioneers 🙂 It’s ended up being a bit of a play around with dialogue.
This Beautiful Life
“It’s broken” Janet mutters, her arms embracing the contents of the wash basket.
“What? The toilet?” My hands stop short at my belt.
She’s already half way down the stairs, a trail of dirty socks in her wake. Big sighs escape her as yet more stray items free themselves from her grasp.
“Janet?” I trip over a Twirly Woo.
“Daddy!” cries my youngest appearing from a bedroom.
“Have you been eating chocolate Gracie? Your hands are covered…”
“It’s poo” calls James from his room “She got it out of the potty”
“You are shitting me!”
“MUUM! Dad’s swearing again!”
