Every Year Same Old Story

Believe it or not I actually struggled with this week’s prompt, so I’m hoping I did a decent job at least :). Thanks for reading!

Usually I’m pretty good at this— being an electrician an all. But this, I just don’t get.

Every Christmas I take out the lights and check to make sure that they are all working (which usually they are), but there is this one set that has it against me.

Maybe it is because they run on battery. Maybe.

But you see, this one set is special. When I take them out there is no way to make them turn on, but they worked when I put them away, and that I just don’t get.

How is that even possible?

Stop Being Polite!

This was a fun prompt to write.  Thanks for reading! 🙂

I’m really trying to be polite.

I really am!

I am a guest after all and it would be rude if I take the last piece. It’s just one of those: If my mom was here she would look at me with those eyes that usually meant, “I don’t think so.”

But the chocolate melts in your mouth as soon as you take the first bite, and best of all it’s not too sweet—just the way I like it.

And everyone that walks by it looks at it but won’t dare to take the last piece, and quite frankly I’m losing my patience!
