Tamika Wood’s Birthday Party

& Other Stories by Le Kendall

4 Night


I mop the floor where Pa threw up.

I put Pa’s dirty clothes – and Dad’s wet ones – in the washing machine.

I walk around the house and find all the dirty plates and cups I can find. I empty the dishwasher, and stack it.

I order some takeaway, and wait for it to come.

I eat my Pad Thai out of the plastic container, and put the rest in the fridge.

I wash the fork.

I clean the sink. And the downstairs toilet.

I check the mail.

I make myself a cup of tea.

And then I wash the cup. And then I dry it.

And then I put it away.
