Dunny Business – Kelly Hibbert
2000 words Children 8 – 12 years
Sam is excited about something new that is happening on his family’s farm. Dad is not so happy. Mum is keen to discuss the changes but Dad’s mood worsens until the day comes and the outback toilet is history.
When Dad struts across the back lawn with the newspaper tucked under his arm, we know he means business. Nature is calling and he won’t be seen for quite some time. Mum thought Dad might have fallen in one day, he was gone that long! She asked me to go and check. I snuck up to the door and could hear the toilet roll holder squeaking. I was glad he was okay. Dad doesn’t like being disturbed when he’s on the toilet. The Prime Minister could visit and Dad would make him wait.
