Town Hall Meeting

It’s 7:00 & dinner has finally finished. Mom has a PTA meeting & Dad is going wherever Dad’s go at this hour {I have my suspicions}. “Upstairs to do your homework scout” Mom instructs as she’s clearing the table. Dad grabs the trash bag on his way out & tells Mom to make sure she locks up. After I know they’ve left I call Chase. “They’re gone. I’m coming over.”

Once I meet up with Chase we meet up with Malcolm & Tessa at the rec center. As soon as we arrive Malcolm let’s us know it’s time to head in. ¬†We make our way to room 207 just as the clock strikes 8.¬†Inside, just as I imagined I see my Mom & Dad sitting near Malcolm’s parents along with almost every other parent in town. At the podium is Mayor Jensen he starts the meeting.

“Today was a good day all. Now let’s discuss possible mischief for tomorrow. How can we make the lives of our kids a living hell?”

WOE prompt

How many times did you hear from your parents {I know I did!} or how many times have you said to your own kids “What do you think I do, sit around dreaming up ways to make your life miserable?” Yeah. That.

    I really liked this. I laughed out loud at the ending:~)There’s a bit of reverse “horror” tale in this me. Parents plotting to drive their children mad.

    It’s a very clever take on the prompt and I enjoyed reading this:~)
