Wednesday's Words on a Friday
The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles. Sadly, Delores has now closed her blog forever due to other problems.
The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along and read it.
This month the prompts are supplied by Elephant's Child and can be found here.

Here is my story:
I stormed into the living room as quietly as I could and hissed at the kids to please keep the noise down!
“Your mother is sleeping, these night shifts at the hospital are really hard and she needs her rest to continue as a functioning human. Now, what is all the grumbling about?”
Gillian got in first, “the TV guide,” she said. “I want to watch that new show tonight, Extreme Railways it’s called and they have some lovely old steam trains on there, I saw it advertised, but Terry wants to watch that dumb Justice League movie!”
“It’s not dumb!” yelled Terry then immediately clapped his hands over his mouth whispering “sorry dad.”
“Give me the paper,” I said. “You two go and play a nice quiet game somewhere outside while I decide what happens. At the very least I will be recording tonight’s episode of All The Rivers Run for your mother.”
Both kids wandered out to the backyard and veered off towards the table tennis table. I made a fresh coffee and sat down to look at the TV pages, instantly seeing what the kids hadn’t.
Their preferred shows were on at different times, so they could both watch both of them.
I marked a red circle at the start time of each of their shows, but decided not to tell them until dinnertime. I checked on Judy who was still sleeping, then took the clothes hamper from the bathroom to start a load in the washing machine.
