Three Line Tales, Week 26: Round-Up

three line tales week 26: summer camp

I’m still broadband-less (BT, eh?). Which made compiling this round-up a tad harder than I’d like, but I got there in the end:

I hope I didn’t forget anyone – if any lines are missing, let me know.

(Our broadband has gone all wonky, so I don’t know if I’ll be around to read much. Let’s hope so…)

Hose Pipe Ban

100 words about a faceless bureaucracy who doesn't care about people
FFfAW week 75 photo prompt (c) Louise 

‘You call this a garden? It’s a small vegetable farm.’

Melanie shrugs as she lugs the hose around to water the beds farther down.

‘To-MAY-to, to-MAH-to.’

‘I believe they’re part of the problem.’

The inspector stabs his clipboard.

‘Did I miss the memo when they made growing food illegal?’

‘I don’t care what you grow. I care about excessive water usage.’

‘It won’t rain. We’ve emptied the last of our water tanks days ago – and we always keep more than we’re required to by law. ’

‘But not enough. You cannot use the hose.’

‘People will starve.’

‘The law’s the law.’

Undecided

100 words about a woman who doesn't want to decide
Nortina’s Moral Mondays this week is all about getting off the fence 

‘These. No, those. No, hang on, I don’t know.’

‘Where have I heard this before… Both?’

‘Both would be greedy.’

‘You don’t usually show such restraint. Both would mean we can get out of here. At this point, I’m willing to pay that price.’

‘You aren’t paying for anything, mister. I buy my own shoes.’

‘Prove it.’

‘There’re arguments to be made for either.’

‘I understand these. But those? They’re flashy and look like elaborate instruments of torture.’

‘Sometimes, a girl needs flashy.’

‘I wish you’d decide.’ (He dosen’t say: On one pair of shoes. Or one man… On me.)
