#Maydays Prompt – Playing with Fire


Today’s #maydays prompt, FIRE

You awake hon?


You awake?

I am now.

Can we talk?

Babe its 2 am.

I know I want to talk.

Are you sick?


Your mother sick?


Grandma dying again?

No! I just want to talk.

You’re playing with fire you know that?

Yes I do but its important.

Can’t it wait till morning?

It could but its fresh on my mind and now is the time.

Ok Buster spit it out!

The spare room I think it should be painted in red.

What? You woke me up to tell me that?


I don’t care right now if we paint it orange.

I hate orange.

Look mister get your arse to sleep.

You’re mad now aren’t you?

Yes babe, I’m all fired up so if you know what’s good for you.

Ok I didn’t mean to get you all riled up.

Then why wake me?

To talk about the spare room.

Listen buddy boy, I’m not talking about spare rooms at 2 am.

Ok. I’ll go back to sleep.


Didn’t think you’d bite my head off.

I didn’t bite your head off but that’s not such a bad idea.

When you use buster and mister at me I know I’m in trouble.

You deserve to be. Now sleep mister.

I am, sound asleep right now.




I love you.

Hmmm…..I’ll give you an answer in the morning.

Great, love your morning answers….zzzzzzzz

    Oh I needed that tonight 🙂 A late night chuckle when I’m feeling down. It’s been a bad day as far as pain goes. This was great, Michael 😀

      I’m sorry to hear that Lyn, glad I could give a little boost, maybe my music prompt post might help too? Hope tomorrow you are feeling better.

    Wonderful! I really enjoyed the continuity of that 2 am conversation – chuckle-making material for sure.

    Lucky you to only get a buster and mister with a 2 a.m. wake-up, lol. Great post, Michael 😀

    Such a funny conversation. One of those 2:00 am conversations eh? I would hate to say, but I’m a grumpy person when someone wakes me from sleep. I would probably get really upset or say something I shouldn’t. Clearly, this couple has done this before and have a way to deal with these sudden questions about painting spare rooms 🙂 Great way to show playing with fire.
