Pumpkin Carving

“Mommy, why are you buying two pumpkins?”

Stephanie looked down at her sweet daughter’s face and smiled. “Just because.”

“I wish daddy was here,” her five-year old son said.

“Yeah, me too,” Stephanie responded, though she didn’t really mean it.

They left the pumpkin patch and returned home. After she had tucked the children into bed, she grabbed the plumpest pumpkin and sat down at the kitchen table. She calmly took the picture she had blown up of her ex-husband, taped it carefully to the pumpkin and grabbing a large, sharp butcher knife, she cheerfully gouged his eyes out.





Write up to 100 words, fact or fiction….

This is a themed writing meme hosted by Jenny Matlock. The goal is to write something that does not exceed 100 words (not including said prompt). The prompt this week is the picture.

  1. I got a great deal of joy from this. Does that make me twisted? I had one of those husbands a very long time ago…..

  2. Something tells me she’s not too happy with her ex. Well, I guess it’s better to gouge the picture on the pumpkin than the ex, ha, ha. Clever take on this.
