Glitch in the works

Sorry couldn’t resist, I’ll have another go when the photo arrives


“Hobnobs? You can’t come in here and say hobnobs. What if everyone decided to say hobnobs.”
“Well what can I say?”
“I don’t know yet, I’m awaiting instruction.” The official straightened his sandy overall officiously. “What are you doing now?”
“Twiddling my thumbs and drumming my fingers on the desk.”
“That may be a skill in itself but kindly desist. You’ll just have to wait for the prompt.”
“Where shall I wait?”
“Wait in here, nothing’s arrived yet, but do it quietly, it’s a photo prompt not an audio, and you’ll have to move when the photo arrives.

  1. Dear Michael,

    The wait is over. The prompt is there. But, after reading your story, I’m not too sorry. Fun stuff. Still laughing and shaking my head. Thank you for your patience and for making such sweet lemonade out of my lemon.
