The Diary of a Short-armed Man. (Day 12) By CpSingleton © 2016

January 12th
Evening, Mol,
I hope you are making friends up there.

I had a surprise visit from Dr. Laurie’s son, Dr. Laurie today.

I was watching a robin feed from your bird table when he pulled up in his fancy car. He doesn’t half look like his dad these days.

I suspect that June may have called him to check up on me, to be honest. I do wish she wouldn’t meddle, but it was nice to see him anyway.

We talked about his father and how great he was with the kids. Do you remember when he removed Kevin’s verruca on his desk? It was over before Kevin could wince.

Anyway, he came around to see how I was after your passing and to recommend something called CBT. He said that he could give me pills but felt that they wouldn’t help me in the long run. He also suspected that I wouldn’t take them anyway. He knows me too well, eh, love?

I told him that I was fine and that the only reason that the quilt was on the sofa was because I was a little chilly. I’m not sure he believed that.

He said that he could arrange for a person to call from that CBT thing and wouldn’t take no for answer. He said it was just a telephone call and not painful, so I agreed. I can always hang up if they start telling me what to do, can’t I, Mol?

He stopped for a quick cuppa and talked about lovely you are. He’s a good lad. Just like his dad, eh, love.

Anyway, hope you are having fun. Missing you so much, my lovely Mol.
Love always,
Your Bill



About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
