Sometimes when I read the Six Sentence Story prompt for the week, I struggle to think of a story. Other times, something comes immediately to mind. This week was one of the latter.
"Say 'sorry' to your sister; you scratched her," said the aunt to her 3-year-old niece.
The girl looked confused. "I didn't scratch her," she responded, as she held up her hands and motioned as a cat might flex its claws. She started to walk away, then turned back. With a long pause for dramatic effect that belied her years, she gave an explanation for her sister's tears.
"I accidentally stepped on her foot."
I'm thankful for my grandchildren.
