A Modern Family, by Fliss Zakaszewska

(F.F.F. Website Story)

I’m sitting with my laptop writing this story while Annette is preparing a software analysis report on Excel. Gavin is playing poker online (and winning), Chaz is watching his favourite car programme (featuring the guys that used to be on BBC) and Isla is mesmerised by a 1‑Direction video on an iPhone. Elsa is happily watching a trashy ‘soap’ on her iPad.

Three generations in one room. I close my laptop.

“Lovely to see you all, but I’ve got to go.”

Chaz looks up. “Lovely to see you too Grandma. It’s great to spend time together.”

Modern life – modern ‘togetherness’.
