Happy Valentine’s Day!

14 Feb

Heart BoxWhen I was a kid, one of every year’s major concerns was whether my father would please my mother with an appropriate gesture on Valentine’s Day. We kids teetered on the line between dread and excitement as we waited for Dad to come home and prove himself to be worthy or unworthy. It was always a close-run thing. I didn’t quite get it right in this shorty but it’s a strong start.


Working Title: Love Test
1st Sentence: Mom couldn’t give my father’s alleged devotion the once-over on Valentine’s Day, because paying full price for a heart-shaped box of chocolates and a card as big as a bed sheet is just dumb.
Favorite Sentence: Box as big as a platter, check.
Word Length: 607
