Penny for the Guy

From a recent flash fiction workshop – “100 word dialogue”

“Barbara! Did you take the chicken out of the oven?”
“Of course I did, Harold, what do you take me for?”
“What’s that burning smell, then?”
“Oh no! Those hoodlums again! It’s always the same around bonfire night.”
“Didn’t we have a bucket around here somewhere? I’ll fill it up from Alicia’s sandpit, just in case.”
“It’s just by the back door. Be careful out there, Harold, just in case they’re lurking in the darkness.
I wish he wouldn’t slam the door so!
What’s taking him so long?
Harold? Harold!”
“Penny for the guy, missus?”
“Why is he wearing my husband’s clothes?”
