100-Word Challenge for Jacqui


Behave Yourselves


Thank you Google.

Thank you Google.

My fickle pen rushes…

Morgan paced like a panther. “You know me. I do what I like.”

“You-know-me-I-do-what-I-like.” Wally’s sour mouth puckered.

Hey stop.

“You dare use that tone with me?”


You’re fighting? Behave yourselves.

“Sorry, sweetheart. I’ve had a dreadful day. Georges-is-unreasonable.”

“Sweetheart? You haven’t called me that in…we’re in agreement then. My choice of destination.”

What? Isn’t this sudden? You can’t change directions whenever you please.

“Destination? I-thought-I’d-explained-I-can’t…”

“Can’t or won’t? You work for me, remember?”

“But the project—”

Enough. I need a break from you two. My wrist’s shot and I have to pee anyway.


Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!

  1. I’m intrigued Tess and now you are going to leave me hanging? Destination? There will be a sequel right?


  2. You always leaving me wanting more. That’s good writing. 🙂


  3. I hope you put these together and publish. They are jewels, every one of them.


  4. In case of repeating myself, but well worth it anyway,, I do love your style and 100 word snippets,, and this one is equal to any… wanting more 😉


  5. We all miss the mark..and do we care..should we…no, if your readers enjoy do not apologise for missing anything ❤


  6. This one Tess, honestly sounds like children fighting, then sounds like an old married couple, then horribly sounds like co-workers, then skips right into an internal brain argument. Could be I think it is a brain arguing with itself.

    Funny I think how we talk to ourselves and bring in different personalities as we try to sort out our internal lives.


  7. It’s very intriguing … I want more.


  8. I LOVE IT!It’s been RT and FBed. What a talent you are, girlfriend.


  9. I am very intrigued by this Tess…a writer who is arguing with oneself perhaps?


  10. I like you best when you don’t behave, my lovely friend.


  11. Intriguing and I saw sherry’s answer


  12. What a conversation! Love it


  13. I think we can all say we have been in this sort of argument – it sounded familiar. I enjoyed it, Tess.
