EM-Drabbles – One Hundred & Twenty-Seven

I admit it.
I could have been a bit more tactful.
Telling her to her face.
But someone had to.
All this time lying when she asked: ‘My bum look big in this?”
Course it bloody does!
But I never said.
Today though, it was too much.
Three jam doughnuts.
Then. “You think I should lose a bit of weight?”
A bit?
All I said was, “You could do with it.”
And now?
She’s not spoken a word to me since.
All afternoon.
Guess there’s only one thing for it.
“You fancy fish and chips for tea?”
“Ooo. Yes!”
