Party Life

by Steve Mitchell

“I know!  Hey, everyone!  Let’s play telephone!”  Nancy scooted left on the sofa. “Everyone sit in a line, next to me.  Okay.  Got it?  Okay?  I’ll start.”  She whispered in Linda’s ear, “Hello.”

Linda gave a thumbs up and turned to Robert.  “Hello,” she whispered.

Robert cleared his throat.  “Hello!”  He announced.

“Yes.  That was it,” Nancy nodded.

The clock ticked.

It continued ticking.
