… in disgrace… (Purdy, Symes and Wright - part 20)

 

Peter Hunter

 

'… Purdey…'

Dad's shout was sharp, resentful and reprimanding… and at first I was not sure what I was supposed to have done…

I had been peacefully asleep on his lap when Mum brought his mid-afternoon cup of tea… with some biscuits coated with chocolate that she had bought him yesterday at 'Desert' the café in Salisbury where he often enjoyed the unique patisserie that the owner made fresh every morning…

… and as I stretched to sniff what was to me a new snack to be investigated and perhaps sampled… I was nudged aside to the arm of the chair…

… where there was this Kindle device that dad  had been playing with… his new touch-screen Kindle.

Not knowing what it was, I naturally sat on it… not realising it was still on…

… and inadvertently pressing the Buy symbol in the  middle of the  screen…

… not a book that either Dad or Mum wanted…

but it only cost him £5.99… I'm in trouble again…

… Purdey…
