Microfiction Muse #8: Tommy's Tantrum


MOM!
She’s grabbing my hands
I’m going to catch cooties
This is so STUPID
Dumb music
Dumb costumes
Dumb girls
Are you even listening to me?
MOM?

(140)

I make it my goal to always use140 characters exactly. Diane Estrella is our host for this weekly meme. Please be sure to visit her blog for complete rules and to visit other participants.

Methinks you have a son, or a nephew, or have been around 11-year-old boys enough to know what they think about folk dancing!! Very appropriate microfiction. Well done.

I'm not sure why, but I can't see the picture. I like the story, though!
