“For God’s sake, Ethel, join the 21st Century and get a charge card.”


Here’s This Week’s Instructions… (to submit one your stories or read others, click the Trike)

“This weekend we’re asking for exactly 33 of your own words plus the following three words”:

  • lost


Would love your thoughts…

  2. Ha ha ha! This reminds me of several family members. They eschew crazy newfangled things like cell phones and debit cards. This was a fun piece! I hope Ethel gets her table.

  3. Great use of the words! But should Ethel have a charge card?

  4. Oh Ethel. 🙂

  5. I like it!! I read some of the other ones too…..this is hard work!!

    1. You should try your hand at it Jaime. Wait till you read the one I am going to write about you…

  6. Charge cards can be convenient…which is exactly why it would be better NOT to have one 🙂

  7. I’m pretty sure I’ve been to that auction and they don’t take credit cards. Sonsofbitches.

  8. I have friends like that.. Wonder how people hope to manage without cash or without card! Need a bit of both IMHO..
