You Have Been Warned!

Written in response to

Talking, about the state of his dinner, Tom stuck his fork into a shrivelled, black potato. He swayed a little, unable to get his wife into focus. I mean, he wasn’t that late home. In fact, only an hour, and he should have stayed where he was. With all that nagging, he needed another pint to recover.

‘Look, it’s black all over, I can’t eat this.’

She stared at him; her arms folded at her chest.

‘I can’t even tell what meat this is? I don’t work all week to eat this rubbish.’

Rolling out some pastry, his wife wasn’t even taking any notice. Tap, tap, tap, on the worktop. All that huffing and puffing, and she made a great impression of a steam train.

‘What is this, a roast potato or a piece of coal?’

He didn’t even notice her turn around. The blow to his head, knocking him senseless. Perhaps he shouldn’t have continued talking – after all – he had been warned!
