100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups

Julia at http://www.juliasplace.org.uk gave us this this week … why does the world fight back when….

Here’s my take on it:
“Does anyone know?”

“What?”

“I thought you were listening.”

He shook his head. Stuffed another handful of crisps in his mouth. Swallowed. “Sorry. I am now. Know what?”

“Why does the world fight back when you poke at it?”

He shrugged. “Damned if I know.” He finished the sandwich he was holding. Swilled the mug of tea down. “Right. Come on, back to work. This fracking won’t do itself.”

I looked into the hole that we’d been digging. Saw the deep zig zag fault line that stretched away. A line we hadn’t dug. “Oh, I don’t know about that.”
