The Turn

– You think you can do it?

– Yeah, I can make that turn.  Can you?

– Sure, it’s easy.  Why – you scared?

– Nah.  You’re the baby.

– I’ll go first, since you’re such a weenie.

– Watch me nail it!  Ayayayaya……

– You OK in there?

– Yeah – I missed the turn, though. Wait for m–

– I’m going.  Waaaaaahh……


– Oh man, you were screaming like a little girl—hey, you OK?

– No you idiot!  I think I broke my effing arm.

– Uh oh.  We are so busted.

  1. LOL, I could overhear that conversation. Sounds like they were on skateboards. Great story of dialogue, it was realistic.

  2. Loved this. You captured these kids to a “T”…even their teasing and cussing. .There’s a playground near me. I see these young daredevils skateboarding every day…falling on their “bloody arses” and “breakin’ bones.” I also hear the ambulance sirens at least twice a week, carrying them off to the ER and hoping their parents have health insurance. Tks for the good read. And tks for visiting my blog and story.

  3. Dear Erin,
    I love short pieces that are all dialogue, and you did it extremely well. When they get a little older, I can just here one of them say, “Hold my beer while I try this.”

  4. Great stuff, very clever to tell a story using only dialogue. Also the way in which you write it lends the boys’ speech an authenticity and gives us a good feel for their personalities. A nice sense of humour in this story too, good observational comedy 🙂

Tell me something good.....
