Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – One Hundred and Eighty-One

The gnomes watched furtively while some strange biggers dug, sweated, swore and laboured at building a big pond. A pond with square sides and blue tiles. Late at night, when the garden folk had the place to themselves they strolled over to stare.

It was, as Big Sid declared, a fucking big hole.

But then it was finished and filled with water, and the household biggers jumped in and out squealing gleefully.

The party to christen the pool might have been less successful if the guests had seen a line of grinning gnomes pissing into the water in the moonlight.
