Six Sentence Stories

Readers of an American persuasion may be offended by the following, and for this the author sincerely apologises...sorry, apologizes!




Hey ma'am, houza about me ‘n you head'n downtown for som‘a that southern fried chicken?

Bertram, for the last time, will you please stop putting on that accent, you are watching far too
many American television shows but if you promise to behave I’ll take you to McDonald's for a burger, but there's to be no more talking like a cowboy.

Hey woman, it’s is just the way I is, though on second thoughts Patricia, I think  I’d prefer fish and chips and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

Don’t you mean fish and fries and a soda?

Yea-ha, now you’ze at it too honey child!

I sometimes wonder why I married you Bertram, come on.



This weeks cue is Menu and I have taken the liberty of de-constructing it whilst still sticking to a foody story!

  1. I liked it! (yeah, this is where I go all crypto-faux-rhetorical on ya....) among the different challenges in learning this writing thing, accents, dialects and (ahem patois) is fun in the aggravating way that fiction-writing, building-a-ship-in-a-bottle, and being-taught-to-dance-by-your-spinster-aunt-at-a-wedding-reception is fun.
    good job with the 'merican dialect.
