Wow. So harsh - can see a little bit of the devil in there! I really want to know what the Mum was like underneath the skin. Was she that evil? Just hurt? Was her daughter evil, or maybe just hurt? Interesting, good stuff. :) Guess someone's horns were holding up a halo. I've seen divorcing couples...

“Mummy, when is Daddy coming to see me again?” “Probably never. You’re such a naughty girl. You answer me back; you won’t do as your told. He probably doesn’t love you any more. Any way, he’s got a new family now.” Sobbing “He said he would always love me.” “Yes, well, he said that to me too, but he...

Dear Silver and Sparky,
Many thanks for all your hard work. I would like to continue with the HHC (which is pretty much all I ever did anyway). [email protected].
Thanks
Rob.

I get such a bad press. The forces ranged against me are vicious and relentless. The lies and propaganda go unchallenged. I’m in charge of retribution. I’m not supposed to be nice. God could do his own eternal damnation, but he doesn’t like to get his hands dirty, so he sub-contracts it to me. But I...

Adults Only It is so easy to sit in judgement, particularly with the benefit of twenty-twenty hindsight. And I’m not saying that we didn’t know we were breaking rules, of course we did. But we were just kids ourselves, first time away from home; new freedoms and experiences; new challenges. I honest...

“It’s all in delicate balance.” “Well, errrr, yes, OK.” “The forces of nature have to be set to create just the right amounts of mass, momentum, energy and inflation, which in turn give us a steadily expanding universe.” “I can see that but I don’t understand how you make it happen.” “Ah yes, well t...

Banks and bankers: never popular, have come in for some stick recently. Corrupt practice, rate fixing, taking undue risks with customers’ funds: their public image is somewhat tarnished. So it is reassuring to see the Financial Conduct Authority hand out some hefty fines. It is only right and proper...

So am we to believe you're writing about Shipman's last victim, wait, have to wiki it, Kathleen Grundy? I remember her death was recorded as old age. Interesting way to tackle the...

Interesting. We could write great swathes on what good and bad mean. If you believe, as I do, that the only meaningful definitions are based on genetics, then even good looks selfish. Thanks for posting.

What a great piece, Rob. And one that I'd like to add into May's Inkblots content. I'm a little later with scheduling this time around, but nonetheless I'd like to add it in for publication on the 5th and renaming this to Man's Salvation. :) Yes, I have no objection to that. Many thanks for your fe...

Popular wisdom says one should never discuss religion or politics with a friend. Jed and Mark were definitely not friends and threw insults at each other, across the office, all day, every day. It had all started as a theological discussion but no one could remember when. Little Mark was a devout Ca...

“Ah, Miss Arbeiter. Many thanks for coming back again. Please come in and take a seat.” Mrs Wache wafted Karen Arbeiter towards a chair set before the desk and then slid herself into the rather grander chair behind it. She continued “Since your last interview, we’ve been doing some checking of your ...

I recognised Karen’s car as soon as I turned the corner of the playground. I confess my feelings were mixed, confused even, at the prospect of meeting her again. There was nothing out of the ordinary there: my relationships with all my father’s girlfriends were ever fraught and confused. They natura...

I am very fortunate. My wife's granny died on Valentine's Day, so it is not observed in our house. But I see my peers get it in the neck.

This is a really great piece, Rob. You've managed to switch seamlessly between Molly and Michael's perspective and drew me in from the very first paragraph. It was interesting to see how Michael, so cool and calm with his peers, crumbled after his accident. And how he latched onto Heidi as both a m...

This isn't a proper HHC entry. I wrote it some time ago and it took far longer than half-an-hour, but it seemed to fit February's theme, so I've bunged it in for rejection. They say accidents come in sets of three. The fire at Molly Stevens’ place of work, the Catterick sugar factory, qualified as a...

Interesting use of the theme, Rob. :) Really enjoyed reading this, and it gave me some insight into what BFG (big-footed giant) - er, I mean BFEs do. XD No more squishing the little feet, I say. But it's not a perfect world! I'll warrant you have little feet, Silver ;-) Many thanks for your feedback.

Big feet are best: everyone knows that. Our superior position in the world is justified and proven, both vindicated and vindicating. And amongst us big feet, a few are best placed to foster and develop in the best interests of the greater good. You could call us BFE (for big feet elite). Little feet...

Wow, really? I suppose if you watch them consistently each week then you'd have a good memory recall on questions. Maybe Paxman just cycles through a bunch of sets each week. I know it's mean to take the mick out of some of the people on there, but it's just so funny to watch them do this little ha...
