Ooh, I haven’t done this since week 62.
The challenge: 105 words including:
…you said you’d do WHAT?….
I knew you would
“You said you’d do WHAT?”
“I said I’d ask you to play the fat controller in the school play.”
“You can put a pillow or something under a big waistcoat. The kids will have a riot.”
“Kevin’s bringing a top hat for you. You’ll look brilliant. It’ll be great fun.”
“It’s just a show. It’s acting. It’s not for real.”
“It has to be you. You’re the only fat boy in the class. The part is made for you. It fits you to a… well, an S maybe. A big fat S. You’ll do it, won’t you?”

I love the way the speaker tries to be so delicate all the way through and then just gives up and tells the truth. This made me smile.
But I hope that he told her where to put the part! (guessing that he’s a grown up!)
Thanks. They were meant to be schoolboys.
Great take on the prompt – and I was shocked by what the narrator said at the end – hope he tells her to get stuffed!
Sorry to shock you. They were meant to be schoolboys who haven’t yet learnt to be discreet.
😦 that’s kinda mean but I guess sometimes it does happen.
Boys will be boys. Girls, too, for that matter.
Great take on this prompt! It really rang true.
A very believable little dialogue. Works for me.
Glad you like it 🙂
This made me laugh, then I felt bad! Poor boy. Kids are horrible aren’t they? Great take on the prompt.
Kids *are* horrible. I know a bit about that! Thanks, Rachael 🙂
