Friday Fictioneers — Monstrosity

img_0332“Oh my God, Henry,” Charlotte said. “I send you out to the garage to get rid of all the junk in there so that both our cars can fit and then come out here to find this monstrosity in our backyard? What is wrong with you?”

“Monstrosity?” Henry objected. “This is a work of art, Charlotte. Look at it! It’s worthy of being displayed at the MOMA, for crissake.”

“I’ll not have your junk sculpture spoiling our backyard,” Charlotte said.

“Fine,” Henry said. “But if I move it back into the garage, there won’t be any room for your car.”

    Man of the house. I wonder if it’s true for your household. Or is it the Sensei’s wife that is the true ‘man of the house’..?

    My sister lives in North Carolina and the people who live next door to her have so much junk in their yard that they display like it is art, even a broken down toilet bowl.

      I have someone a few blocks from me whose front yard is full of junk, like broken toys. It’s weird.

    He might have won this round, but something tells me he’s soon going to hear echoes of this conversation, and this victory will turn out to be a pyrrhic one 🙂

    I think he might find it very quickly dismantled, one way or the other, with her car or without it.

    Made me laugh and shudder too – a pretty realistic portrait of marriage I’d say. Happy New Year!

    I fear Henry will have to part with it in the end – or move out perhaps!
