An everyday story of concrete folk: Six

Big Bigger and the teenagers packed themselves into Big’s big car and were just pulling away from the front door when Mother came out of the house.
Big leaned out of his window.
“I didn’t think you wanted anything to do with camping.”
“I don’t, but I dare not let you lot go shopping without me.”
And off they went.
Numpty Nome stared around with wide, worried eyes.
“Why’d they wait for her?”
Hamish looked up from the haggis he was knitting. “I guess it’s because he didnae want tae waken up and find his ba’s in the kitchen blender.”
