100 word challenge #3 - precise

You know, you're a real jerk. (ambiguous)
Why, what did I do now? (attempt at clarification)
I shouldn't have to tell you. (still ambiguous)
Did I forget something? (a further attempt at clarification)
When do you ever remember anything? I ALWAYS have to remind you. (perhaps a bit less ambiguous)
What? Is today something? (digging a little deeper)
Why do I have to tell you? You are such a JERK! (still stuck in ambiguity)
Open the drawer by the bed. (heading toward precision)
What's this? Oh, my God. (getting closer)
Like it? (eliciting precision)
I love you, you jerk. (precise)

The above is this week's response to VelvetVerbosity's 100 Word Challenge.

LOL! That was so sweet :) I LOVE IT! She's much better than I am. It would take hours of the cold shoulder and not speaking for him to illicit, "you're a real jerk" out of me ;)

LceeL said...

Sandy: When it comes to a choice between 'Verbal Abuse' and 'Quiet Cold Shoulder' the use of adjectives wins every time.

This was sheer perfection. You know how I know that? My giggle at the end!

Perfection.

Lauren said...

I love it! That made me laugh right out loud!

Erin said...

So, what did you get her? :)

And I call my husband a jerk all the time. I need to stop lest the small one(s) start to emulate.

Julie said...

Terrific! Very funny.

LceeL said...

Secret Agent Mama: Thank you, Mama. I know that particular conversation by heart. Well, most of it, anyway.

Lauren and Julie: Thanks. Truth is funny, sometimes.

Erin: A replacement for her wedding band - which the jeweler had broken. It's o.k. if you call him a jerk - as long as you tell him you love him - once in a while.
