100 Word Challenge for Grownups: Ho Ho Ho?

Julia has given us a classically seasonal prompt for this week’s 100 Word Challenge for Grownups – a simple “Bah Humbug!” And the director of this production of the Christmas Carol is about ready to join in…

Ho Ho Ho?

“Only time for three more rehearsals, and that’s if they come in tomorrow morning. It’s going to be a disaster.”

“The children sound all right.”

“Oh, the kids know their lines, the singers are fine, the script works. And there’s a hole right in the middle of the production.”

“A hole?”

“Instead of a bad guy. Says he likes Christmas. If he’s not loathsome in the first act, nothing’s going to work. Hey, Scrooge! Let’s hear your first line again.”

A cheery “Bah humbug!” Pause. “That wasn’t right, was it?”

“You hear that? You call that a Scrooge? Nick, what’s wrong with you?”
