For this year's A-Z Challenge I have selected a word from the dictionary for each day and written a story around it with a 100 word limit. For extra interest I have chosen words that are unknown or unfamiliar to me. All definitions are from the Oxford Dictionary & Thesaurus 2007 Edition. Today's word is Kludge.
Kludge: Something hastily or badly put together.
It was a real kludge and he knew it, hammered together with mismatched planks and nails knocked in at odd angles. When Sandra had asked him to build a kennel for Bobo – his dog, he still thought – at her new house after she was done divorcing him, he couldn’t believe her cheek.
It was a bit mean to the dog, but it should do the trick. Sure enough, she chewed his ear off when the storm shredded the kennel, leaving a sodden Bobo yowling at her back door, but he knew she wouldn’t ask him for a favour ever again.
