100 Worder Dishing it Out


100 Worder

Helen Laycock

Dishing it Out

A mug of hot broth with a kick

Mary scooped a handful of gunk out of the waste disposal – onion skin, flaccid black lettuce, strings of carrot peel and a melded mush of cornflakes, all bound together with bluish mozzarella.
A bit like John's eyes.
            The blob sat heavy, like an overfed toad, in the palm of her Marigold and it
was with a significant amount of force that she bowled it into the pan.
            Thwack!
Having rubbed a potato around the toilet bowl, she chopped and added it,
then tipped in the water from the dying carnations.
Cheap. Just like Kiera.
John enjoyed his soup that evening.
