Short #1: Language

"Is that your new bike?"


"The bike you were banging on about for half an hour?"


"The bike you said was 'really brilliant' and 'completely awesome'?"

"Uh huh. And…?"

"Well." Seven year old Jay snorted, rolling his eyes. "Sorry, mate, but it's a bit shit."

Simon's eyes widened. "Don't say that!"

"Why not? You scared?"

"No! It's just a bad word!"

"Chicken, chicken!"

"I-I can say it if I want to!"

"Say it then."

"Shi… shi… shi…" Simon's face worked through an interesting number of expressions before, finally, he shouted, "I-I don't want to!"

Jay began to snicker.
