“ Jack,  Don’t buy any more batteries. ”

“Emma, we need them for almost every electronic gadget in our house.”

“Yes, Jack.  But we already have a jar full of extra batteries. Also, there a lot of batteries everywhere in the house”

Meanwhile, Jack is busy browsing the internet and Emma is busy searching and sorting the unused batteries.

“Emma,  Can you believe this? If we buy a digital photo frame, we will get a pack of batteries free..!”

Emma let’s out a deep sigh wondering when her husband will get over this strange hobby of collecting batteries.

  1. Quite funny! I have been pleased how less and less items seem to need disposable batteries. Many you can charge now and it seems to me this much better for the environment. Great story.

  2. I feel for Emma. They probably don’t need an electronic picture frame any more than they need more batteries. I like your dialogue and the character dynamics.

I'm all ears. Tell me.
