A Waste Of Breath

by George F Mason
Originally published by on 23/02/2013

I'd had a harrowing day with my best friend and after seeing her in such an emotional state I had to share it with somebody. Hubby was in his favourite chair, with one eye in the paper and another on the telly.

"She's in a terrible mess, her mother's died, her father's got diabetes and her cat's been run over. She's on all sorts of tablets and despite regular counselling she's tried to end her life five times."

He turned to me with a vacant look, "Next time you see her, tell her to try and cheer up a bit."
