An Indian Summer

An Indian Summer

A Story by Gee
"

Open mind please..non pc

"
The 27th half wit of the day approached, smiling,

" can't believe how hot it is, can you. It's 73 degrees " he said before continuing,

" It's an Indian summer, that's what it's called at this time of the year when it gets warm again, an Indian summer " he smiled, chuffed at this jewel of information.

I smiled back. " why? "

"Huh" he grunted, perplexed at the question.

" why is it called an Indian summer, and how many days must this weather hold for it to be considered thus ? "

" My grandad drives a bus, a big red f****r in London, a double decker. He takes all of the foreigners sight seeing, you know, Buckingham Palace, Downing Street, Houses of Parliament, Hard Rock Cafe. He said it's mainly Japs these days, with a few chinks, but hardly any darkies or Arabs. He reckons it's all to do with that Al Keeda fella. You know, him that goes around choppin' people's heads off and blowing things up. Now, I ain't being funny but you would've thought they might have nicked him by now, I mean, he must have to catch a plane to get round all of the places he gets up to no good in, so you would've thought they might be keeping an eye out at passport control. Can't be that many men called Al Keeda can there. "

As I went to reply, he set off chopsing again.

" Mind you, there's plenty of Browns, Smiths, Greens over here, perhaps Keeda is a popular surname where all of them terrorists come from, might be thousands of the little fuckers. Yep, that must be it, can't be any other explanation can there, makes sense when you think about it. Anyway, can't stand chatting all day, got a meeting to attend, annual Chief of Police seminar.
You take care".

and with that he was gone.

Love the dialogue in this so good! A nice snap shot conversation filled with views and descriptions that are real and held by many. The twist was supreme and not too far from the truth. But as Mr Pettit says keep yer heed doon fur a while!

You are more than welcome... Not too bad this end Gee, thanks Neville
I totally appreciate the natural sync which has been put in place here. The dialogues are very non improvised in tone and just like a conversation would be.. That makes it sound in sync with the situation you build. I'm big fan of writers who can write dialogues without improvising them and you did such a healthy job with this one.
Would this continue because you left it very open ended, and i would be interested in further reading for sure.
Appreciate it so much, please keep writing.

Thank you. Doubt this will ever progress further as I never revisit my scribblings.
Gee,
I can relate to your well written story. Sadly I live in the days Trump. I know ignorance and we are flooded with it in the states. Your poem was very clever, I admire the way you led into the man's rants. If it wasn't so scary it would be funny.
Peace, Richie b.

It takes all kinds to make this wonderful ( at times frightening) world, isn't it? As a writer you have an obligation to show the world it's reflection!
Trust all is well with you, Gee. Uma grande abraço.
Bom fim de semana ( have a good weekend). At this rate, by the time you visit Brasil you will be speaking português!!)

I have decided you are slightly barking; which is a good thing given how boringly straight the roads are in MK.

Beccy. :))

Alls well here, just haven't been writing.
Highly amusing... but also kinda depressing because there is truth underlying it. It's a little hyperbolic but there is, or was, a high profile police chief in Arizona named Joe Arpaio who this could apply too in a frighteningly accurate way. Well done.

"My grandad drives a thus".... what's a thus? Is that a British slang thing or did you mean bus? After coming accross the "Al Keeda" reference it occured to me you're purposefully using the vernacular of a stupid person but that doesn't work for "thus" - "bus" like it does for "Al-Qaeda" - "Al Keeda".
