You Call This an Upgrade?

This is my entry for Monday Mixer over at Jeffrey Hollar's blog. The prompt is 150 words exactly using at least 3 of the 9 words given. I've used 8 this week (I threw in the 9th, but as it's a different part of speech than the one he called for, it doesn't count...chirrup just wouldn't be a verb for me!) Ah well. I had fun. For some reason the two characters have British accents in my head as I was writing... Go figure. :) Enjoy!

“What is that ethereal chirruping? Do you allow birds in here?”

  1. Yes, I can see how British accents would work. The first few lines sound something like you'd hear on an episode of "Are You Being Served." Nice job!
