George Toughs It Out

by Lindsay Wade
Originally published by on 18/05/2018

“Go on, shoot! I dare you, just shoot!'

George was at his commanding best, showing no outward sign of emotion despite his seemingly hopeless position.

“Come on, get it over with and just shoot. What’s the matter with you? Scared that you might spend the rest of your days inside? Huh, what a bunch of pansies – you couldn’t shoot if somebody paid you!'

Grace, George’s long-suffering wife, heard the commotion and flew into the room.

“Darling,' she said, “perhaps you would have better luck if you just talked quietly and encouragingly to the plants, instead of shouting at them.'
