I WONDER WHY?

I’ve just ordered one of these … … and it might be associated with this … I wonder what I’m up to …. tee hee. . (Oh help! Lo,TG Ed)

PART ONE

With a heavy heart he loaded the shopping into the back of the car and slammed the tailgate shut. He clambered rather awkwardly into the driving seat and just sat there staring out of the grubby windscreen. He decided the best thing to do was to go to the nearest A&E. If only he hadn’t […]

PART TWO

He started the engine and instead of turning left he turned right and headed for the hospital. He arrived at A&E and eventually spoke to the triage nurse. She made copious notes. He sat patiently waiting to be called in to see a doctor. Eventually his patience paid off and he became an official patient. […]

PART THREE

He decided that a glimpse of the sea might help him settle down a bit so he drove down to the car park on the beach next to the ancient black skyscrapers that years ago were used for drying nets. He stared out to sea but couldn’t get comfortable so reversed, turned and headed home. […]

He wandered through the house into the back garden knowing very soon that all hell was going to break loose. He fed the fish and briefly wished that he was one of them. He could hear his wife singing in the bedroom as she got dressed and started doing her hair. It wouldn’t be long […]

PART 3

He drove slowly up to the house, got out of the car and opened the tailgate. Languishing in one of the carrier bags was the thing that could finish his marriage. He carried the shopping in and wiped his feet very thoroughly – being killed for a sheep as a lamb didn’t occur to him. […]

PART 2

At the exit of the car park, instead of turning left, he suddenly decided to go right – anything to delay going home. He went down to the seafront, drove through the old town and parked right on the beach by the ancient black skyscrapers that used to be used for drying nets. He stared […]
