The Exasperated Child #1LinerWeds

First, you know what happens on the first of the month: I post a new micro-mini story on my Hot Flashes page. Go enjoy.

Okay. Now. When #4 Daughter, the Amazing Sara Marian, was wee, we were in the grocery checkout. She wanted something and I denied her request. She was not best pleased.

I said, “What are you going to do, run away from home like the Runway Bunny?” (Referencing a book usually put us both in a better humor.)

And she said:

I run away from home all the time and you never notice!”

I think the lady behind us wet herself a little, she laughed so hard.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s weekly blog hop, One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner or just like them, follow the link.

A PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Somebody runs away.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    She may have meant that literally, but my first thought was, “Now THERE’S a reader for you. We run away all the TIME and no one notices.”

    We’re time travelers, too.
