Good Wednesday, my peeps! I hope you are not all going stir-crazy in your homes while respecting your governments’ dictates. Are you taking the time to eat meals as a family? Do things together? Take walks in the fresh air? If some of you are like me and not able to work because a) you are quarantined (for me until Monday the 23rd) because of travel and/or b) your work is closed (as mine is at this point) then hey, let’s look at the silver linings and focus on other stuff while doing our part in sharing the love while staying apart!
In the meantime, we have stories to share on this photo provided by J.Hardy Carroll. Thanks, Josh. And thank you to Rochelle for keeping us busy, at least for a couple of hours, eh? Click on the frog below and read more stories or, better yet, add your own 100-word tale.
Breakfast at the Diner
He came to the diner every day for a simple leisurely breakfast. Though he brought the newspaper with him, he barely read it, preferring to watch the folks sitting around him. He especially loved weekends as there were more families. The dynamic of these little units pinched his heart and constricted his throat. Why did he torment himself with these images? It was simple, really. They brought him back to the time when he had the same thing. When he answered the endless “why” questions and she wiped their faces of sticky jam. When they laughed and planned and dreamed.
