Carmen tried not to look guilty. “I planted a little story seed …” she held up two fingers, very close together, to illustrate her point.
“You mean you lied,” I shot back.
“I didn’t lie, per se,” she swallowed, “I just didn’t tell him the whole truth.”
“You’re an idiot. What do you think lying is??”
“Oh, shut up.”
“That’s like saying, ‘you’re a little pregnant.’ Either you are, or you aren’t. Either you’re honest or you’re not.”
“I like story seed – it sounds better.”
“Seed my foot. You have a full-blown garden.”
“Pass the hoe,” she giggled.
“You need a backhoe,” I snorted.

Geez… you sent me down memory lane to a time when my daughter thought I was dumb and stupid and didn’t know anything. I liked the audio version too. How clever!~Ames
Such a nice, tight write…and clever, too. I also liked the audio version, which is just how I was reading it in my head.
I love how everyone had a different take on this. I guess that’s what makes the world a more interesting place, no? Nicely done!
I love this little story, and it was so good to hear you read it. Great idea!
Oh wow, this is really cool, I love hearing stories read!…very funny stuff too, is this what little white lies are made of?!!! Cool way to offer you centus this week!
Oh, yea!!! An audio version! I listened, and I LOVE it! Great take on the prompt. It is sort of like mine, only a lot more cheerful.
