When You Always Get Your Murds Wuddled #carrotranch #flashfiction

Charli Mills’ prompt this week is

September 6, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write about an epic workplace. It can be real or imagined. Go where the prompt leads.

‘God…’

‘What’s up mate? Looks like you’ve just been told you’re the love child of the Donald and Kim Un Kardashian?’

‘My mum. Given me a right bollocking. Apparently I just called my grandma and told her that I’d just “waxed her high and wide” as promised.’

‘Geez, mate, that’s a bit… saucy.’

‘I taxed her Hyundai. I was trying to help but she’s Mrs Malaprop made flesh.’

‘Poor old thing.’

‘I know. She told dad how pleased she was that my new workplace was epic.’

‘You told me it was manky.’

‘I said, quote, “it’s totally septic, grandma”.’

    Ha! I was waiting to have my hair cut and the stylist turned to me and asked “Do you want to make a scene?” At least that’s what I thought I heard and so I asked him “You want me to make a scene?” “God no,” he replied. He was actually asking “Do you want a magazine?” I can totally identify with mum.
