  1. Perfect. I love it. Perfect 6 word story to go along with the photo. One thing, though. Should it be “Next time THEY’LL hire a professional”?

    1. Not necessarily. Using ‘they’ll’ would suggest an external, present tense viewpoint – someone looking at them and saying what they’ll do next time. ‘They’d’ is more the 3rd person, past tense viewpoint that I intended – the character themselves was thinking what they’d do next time. 🙂 I’m glad you liked it, Emilio. Thanks for visiting.

      1. Makes sense. I just seemed to stumble a bit when I first read it. I’m enjoying your writing.
