Prompt: Conversation with my spouse | Word count: 1188 | Genre:
Well we are finally alone, I thought they would never leave.
What is it with them anyway? I can barely get them on the phone. They never come around, and today they just wouldn’t leave.
Did I tell you what Kenny said when he called last month? I thought it was very strange. I just now remembered, I don’t know why I didn’t tell you then?
“ Mom,” you know how much I hate that, Mom, so common, how hard is it to say Mother?
“Mom, coming to your place is too hard on the kids, and I don’t remember how to be in the Army any longer.” He was never in the army. I don’t know what the hell he is talking about.
You know as well as I do, he finished his degree in business. This is the reason I don’t understand him staying at home with those children while that wife of his is off gallivanting all day. Senior Executive indeed. She is just one of those hippie, Eco people. All grains and truth. I want to know why did we spend all that money? Now he is some unemployed hero? A “Stay at Home dad?”
