Again, she’s given us one hundred words, plus the three word prompt! Thanks Jenny!
(Prompt: Surprise! I’m pregnant)
The minute my teenage daughter walked in the back door, I could tell something was wrong.
“Mom, sit down. I have something to tell you.”
Oh no, this is bad, I thought, as I sat in a chair.
“I hit a pedestrian with the car.”
“Oh no, is he alright?”
“Oh Dear God.”
“I’m being charged with manslaughter.”
I began sobbing.
“Not really,” she said. “Surprise! I’m pregnant!”
“Thank God,” I replied. “Why would you tell me such a horrible story?”
“If I had begun with the truth, I’m sure your response to my news wouldn’t have been thank God.”
Thankfully, this piece is fiction. If you want to read about who else is pregnant, go get the links at Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Laurie
