The Things People Say!
Series 1 – Game 4
The nature of this game for the writer is to Create and Flash Fictionalise a story of no more than 300 words on a snippet of eavesdropped conversation that l provide.
The last Games ‘snippet’ back story:
““Stop ramming it in so hard George, let it slide in naturally!””
Was in 2006 when l was still married – l had plumbers in who were fixing the house’s waterworks. They were outside and working with the drains and ‘George’ was an apprentice plumber who had never handled the drain snake’ which to the unknowing is a bit of kit pushed into drains to attend to blockages and to make sure they are clear – the actual conversation was from the senior plumber Jim… ““Stop ramming it in so hard George, let it slide in naturally! Lord knows what your girlfriend must have to put up with?””
George was literally slamming the snake into the pipes with such force that what actually happened was that the end piece fell off in the drain itself and as such causing an actual blockage to an otherwise clear drain!
Today’s Eaves Dropped Conversation Snippet is … from 2012
“Mm, that’s a little disappointing – all that talk and l thought it would be bigger than that”
… So, what can you do with this – if you didn’t know the story?
