The Last Word



“I’ve not telephoned you for a long time –
this is a dreadful line –
can you hear me clearly, Rosemary?”

“What’s that?
You’re not Rosemary?

Where is she then?

Oh...dead!


Pardon my mirth - IGWRT wanted a 30 word drama , and I couldn't resist a little black humour. Sorry!

  1. Such is the price of procrastination! Maybe I should make a few phone calls today.

  3. Oh, my gosh, this made me laugh out loud. I haven't exactly been in the described situation, but as visiting nurse, have made that phone call to set up a visit with a patient only to get the response--"You can't see him, today. He died last night." Nothing quite like cheerfully asking to speak to someone and finding out he's dead now--especially if you just saw him a few days before and everything seemed fine.

  9. Ouch. Death does get the last word at times--but not when love is involved.

  10. This does tell a real tale and makes one want to make all the calls soon! Sad story.
