From blog stories about divorce and subsequent relationships
Upon hearing son’s great news,
I gushed, “I’ll post that on my blog.”
“What…” he said, “…you have a blog?!!!”
One demon exorcised.
I wrote this for the Trifextra Week 48 Writing Challenge where we are to write about exorcising a demon.
This was a tough story to get across in 33 words. Even though my three kids are adults, I did not want them to see these particular stories until I thought it was an appropriate time, which probably would have been never, except for my exuberant slip of the tongue. So, of course, they all wanted to read my blog and, with an appropriate setup, they seem to be ok with the stuff I’ve put out there. At least, they are still speaking to me. I even got a couple of compliments, though no comments on the touchy stories!
Oh! I should mention my son’s great news. His and his girlfriend’s short film, “All You Can Eat”, was accepted by the Slamdance Film Festival. I am very proud of him!
Your comments are appreciated.
