Searching for an ending….

I got to one but I don’t think it’s the right one. Hopefully revisions will steer me right.


Working Title: The Mom Game
1st Sentence: I’ve played the Mom Game since I was in college, where I discovered that reporting all the worst stories about your mother and rating them against other people’s black tales is a great way to get to know people.
Favorite Sentence: She qualified, so I replied to her alcoholism opener with a story about how my mother refused to let the dentist use Novacaine when filling my cavities because she feared it might be a gateway drug.
Word Length: 2,218


Painting “Tote Mutter” by Egon Schiele, 1910.
