Throw Him Away and Get a New One


Make do, I guess - Editor

“Mr Highsmith! Open up, please. I assure you I only have your best interests at heart.”

“What’s wrong with you? I told you to go away!” Angus Highsmith gave up his struggle with the childproof top and threw the bottle of drain cleaner at the wall. Unbroken, it rolled along the faded lino and snuggled up to a nest of empty whisky bottles.

The banging on the door continued. It played havoc with Angus’s hangover.

“I know what you’re doing, Mr Highsmith. Or rather what you’re trying to do.”

Angus sat heavily on the bed and placed his head in his hands. “Go away, go away, go away!”
