Nag Nag Nag
Helga was dying for a piss. With hours remaining before her shift ended, she desperately tried to appease her nagging bladder.
‘I told you not to have that second cup of tea,’ it said.
Helga sighed, ‘Thanks, Bladder, but that’s not helpful.’
‘Just saying,’ said Bladder. ‘If you’d listened to me in the first place…’
‘Are you sure you’re in the right line of work?’ Helga asked. ‘Only maybe you’d be better suited to working ‘next door’… because you’re being a right arse!’
That shut Bladder up.
Helga relished the silence.
‘How long till dinner?’ grumbled Stomach. ‘I’m bloody starving!’
