Time to have a little fun with today’s Daily Prompt, which asks us to “Write a post that includes dialogue between two people — other than you. (For more of a challenge, try three or more people.) Photographers, artists, poets: show us a GROUP.”
This is a conversation that I have never actually heard, but I am convinced that it takes place every time I come even remotely close to getting out of debt!
Visa Card: Psst. Hey– you guys– looks like she made another payment.
Bank account: She must be getting close to caught up.
Car: Not quite, I’ve still got that crack in my front bumper.
Stove: Yeah but that’ll be mostly covered by her insurance. I think it’s my turn for a major repair.
Kitchen Faucet: Are you kidding? I’ve been working on this drip for ages.
Stove: Drip? Ha! I can throw sparks!
Laptop: Ah, but can you do the Blue Screen of Death? That really scares her!
Car: Is the point to scare her? I thought it was just to get her to spend money?
Bank Account: That was my understanding. I’ve been giving positive balance alerts as long as I can remember. It’s up to the rest of you to come up with the next expenditure.
Dishwasher: Hey– Why wasn’t I invited to this meeting? I’ve been on the brink of disaster for months!
Visa Card: Settle down everyone! There’s plenty of credit to go around. You can ALL break down.
Bank Account: Maybe we should give her a break. You know, let her save a few dollars before the next big repair bill…
Stove: I suppose we could…
Kitchen Faucet: Hell no! I’m gonna drip until I get some action!
Car: Now that I think of it, my struts have been aching a lot lately.
Laptop: Besides, what would she do with all that money if she didn’t spend it fixing us?
Dishwasher: What would she do? Good question.
