Series 1 – Game 6

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 …

“Oh well Terry’s friends came around last night and it wasn’t long before we were at it all night!”

I overheard this conversation whilst mucking out my [ex] wife’s horses one Sunday at the local DIY [Do it Yourself] stables in Bourne, Lincolnshire. I was in one horse stall and the conversation was in the next stall between two women and went like this …. [names changed]

“Hey Carol, so how did it go last night, did you manage to speak to Terry?”

“No, sadly not Liz ,things happened different to planned, l swear he does it on purpose when ever l want to talk about starting a family!”

“Why, what happened?”

“Oh well Terry’s friends came around last night and it wasn’t long before we were at it all night!”

“Sorry? Carol, what do you mean you were at it all night, all of you?”

“Oh ha ha, l wish that would happen not a chance! Terry’s really a sort of two minute wonder!”

“Really, to look at him and the way he acts as one of the lads you wouldn’t think that?”

“Looks can be deceptive Liz … no, l went to bed early, but he and his mates played that stupid game all night! All night, all l could hear was ‘”Wow Terry that’s a really big one!” or “Oh no, not little old me!” followed by some cackling laughter! I tell you, l don’t think it’s right that a thirty year old bloke is still playing dungeons and dragons! Don’t know why l bothered going to bed … all night laughter!! Couldn’t sleep!”


So how well did you do?? Sadje played and came up with the following story … “At it all night!!” – Grandma , “At it all night!!” – Sparks , “At it all night!!” – Sadje  all had stories to share.

Today’s Eaves Dropped Conversation Snippet is … from 2003

Blimey!! Ian, look at that girls melons! How did she get them that big?

… So, what can you do with this – if you didn’t know the story?

  1. Makes me think of a postcard my cousin posed for. It’s just her hands holding two watermelons in front of her bikini-clad breasts.
    She did a bunch of wet t-shirts contests and such before she got photographed by Playboy. She was Aug or Sept of 1989… long long time ago…

  2. Don’t know why but made me think of our lovely but very odd elderly couple neighbours. They bought a massive hot tub for the garden. Think they used it twice before it became an unused piece of garden furniture. Remember being in the garden when they did use it once. As they are quite deaf they shouted a lot. All you could here was – your supposed to take your socks off you know. I’ve lost the soap, it’s bigger than I expected, pass the gin, is it leaking, what’s this thing do, have you finished yet I’m bored.
