CHRIS : Joey's nagging me .
Nothing new about that , dude !
CHRIS : He wants to go play pool . At Buxtons .
Best to remain silent . I know very well , where this is leading .
CHRIS : He's also nagging about his CD . Like a dog with a bone . He won't let go . On and on and on and on …
ME : Well , organise something for him . Burn a copy and give it to him .
Hubby leaves to meet Joey . I sigh in satisfaction . At last , a few hours to do some much-needed reading . The next hour passes . Suddenly , hubby returns , irate …
ME : And now , back so soon ? ( …that's goodbye to my novel …)
CHRIS : Joey didn't take his tablets !! Was in one of his moods ! Had to take him home .
I suppress a chuckle .
ME : What happened to the game of pool ? Who won ?
CHRIS : We didn't even make it there . One of Joey's friends needed a lift . To the Bluff , of all places ! He offers every Tom , Dick and Harry a lift . I had to drive all the way to the Bluff . Can you believe it ?
Behind the pages of my novel , I smile …
