“My mom is old,” said Billy as he plowed his truck through a pile of sand alongside the curb.

“My mom is ancient!” said Tommie. He ran his car head-on into Billy’s.

“What are you boys doing?” asked Tommie’s mom, coming up behind them and scaring both.

“We’re just talking about how beautiful our moms are,” answered Tommie.

Tommie’s mom smiled. “You can keep that up.”

Tommie shrugged and his mom walked away.


Now I sit me down to rest
I hope to get this off my chest
If the kids’ screaming doesn’t stop
I swear to God, I’ll blow my top

Obsessive – #AtoZ Challenge

“Jimmy!” calls Mom from downstairs. “It’s time to get up for school!”

“Aww, Mom, I’m sick!”

“No you’re not! You just stayed up too late playing that stupid game!”

“No I didn’t!” Jimmy exclaims. I haven’t been to bed yet, he thinks.

Author’s Notes:

1. We’ve all been there, for one reason or another.

2. I have no plans to write Adult Content fiction pieces for this challenge, but it happens, and it’s sometimes beyond my control if I’m to remain authentic to my muse. I will place a warning in the title of those posts which fall under the AC category.
