Drip drip drip (Friday Fictioneers)

May 7, 2015


Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip

I was going to lose it, seriously, it was all I could hear.

Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip

“Darling,” I hissed through teeth clenched so tight I feared I would break a tooth, “When did you say you were going to fix the tap?”

“Ah ha.”

I could feel myself going red, steam metaphorically rose from my ears. That bloody game.

Right that’s enough. iPad in hand, YouTube how-to’s on speed dial. Wrench clasped tightly between my fingers.

Drip, Drip…

I sigh silently. Then I pick up my bag.

“Where are you going?”

  1. Sounds like a good plan and a wise woman.

  2. micklively permalink

    Retail therapy: almost a panacea. 😉
    Good piece.

  3. The cure-it-all. good for her. (Perhaps a small inflatable dinghy as a subtle hint?)

  4. I like that plan. Fun story. 🙂

  5. Awww, I would have liked her to be able to fix it, without the need for her husband. Nice story.

    • But she did! She looked up the answer, fixed it and then went out without him! 😉

      • Oh, sorry – I didn’t get the fixing bit – I thought she gave up.

      • Ha ha ! no she fixed it by searching you tube for a how to, and then went shopping leaving him sitting watching football!

  6. Love the use of the iPad to find out how to fix a problem.

  7. How much does the “Honey Do” t-shirt cost?

  8. I think she better learn herself..

  9. Yes!!!! A woman after my own heart. Well done.

  10. Ha! Good for you. At least when you’re shopping the drip, drip, drip will be somewhere else. Well done.

  11. Lol!! I could so relate to this! Saying I “was going shopping” was the fastest way to get my ex to get stuff fixed 🙂 great take on the prompt!
