D.I.Y - Saturday Centus # 23

Week 23 of Saturday Centus this weeks prompt is to use up to 100 words (not including the prompt) using the line .. "if I had a hammer"


"Move away from the tool box."
"But if I had a hammer I could -"
"No!"
"It wasn't my fault the last time, the dog barked and -"
"What? Snatched the hammer from your hand and hit the window frame smashing four windows."
"You're just being silly now."
"And you're dangerous and shouldn't be allowed near a tack, let alone a hammer."
"Right that's it, I'm not doing it!"
"Thank goodness."
"What am I supposed to do now, then?"
"Well, you could mow the garden."
"With the new lawn mower?"
"Of course."
"Yes!"

.... Bless him.

LOL, at least they're not giving up. Hopefully, the mowing will go better, ha.

Let's hope the mower doesn't need mending! I can hear the exasperation!

Cheryl said...

I'm surprised it's a couple. I thought for sure it was a mother and child. Doesn't much matter because it works so well either way. Nicely done.

Sue said...

Perfect. And I knew it was a couple from the beginning because I am personally acquainted with this scenario.

heehee

Nice one!

I love this and laughed out loud! Yes, it is definitely a couple you are talking about (and come to think about it I know a couple just like that.) Great use of the prompt! ;-)

Teresa said...

Wonderful take on the prompt! I think I've been on the side being told to step away from the tool box before!

Judie said...

I would be telling my husband he can't use the hammer. By his own admission, he is a mechanical idiot.
