Six Sentence Story: Smoke

Like to read a little, or write a little? Head over to Uncharted and join in the fun of Six Sentence Stories! This week's prompt: Smoke.

*****************************

The daughter often spoke freely of her latest teen heartthrob, so the mother was not surprised to be greeted that morning with the question.

"Do you know who is smokin' hot?"

The daughter, however, anticipated the  customary response of, "No, who?" and was startled by what she actually heard.

"Yes--your dad!"

"Eww, Mom, don't you ever say that again!"

"You asked the question."

************************

Although I often use real-life experiences as inspiration for my responses, in order to keep from further embarrassing any of my children, if you ask me about this incident, I will have to respond with, "I can neither confirm or deny this conversation occured." (Though I do find John attractive!)

  1. So funny. Our daughter is at that stage right now. She wants us to kiss and hug - so she says - but if we do, we get the requisite "eeeewwwww!"

  3. Every kid thinks we "just got here."
    Good and realistic story. It's great fun to make the kids feel a little uncomfortable but let them know mom and dad are in love.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
