I'm Bored

by Allison Symes

‘It’s up to you, I really don’t mind,’ Joe said, swinging his legs idly against the brick wall.

‘Grrr… all I asked was what would you like to do today, as a considerate friend does and as I ask every bloody day, and you still come up with that rot. Are you incapable of giving me a straight answer? I get so bored trying to come up with different things for us at least to try. It is boring sitting on this wall all the time.’

‘Then stop asking me such a stupid question then,’ and with that Joe pushed Humpty Dumpty off the wall.

The mess on the pavement was impressive. Humpty had been a huge egg.

‘Not going to be bored any more, are you, Hump?’
