100 Word Challenge - Consent

What follows is in response to the 100 Word Challenge, usually authored by the agreeable Velvet Verbosity, but rendered, recently and temporarily, to my loving care. The word this week is 'Consent'.


100 Word Challenge


You have my ....


Almost from the time they met, it had been a game with them. It had started at school. He said, "You have my pen." She turned around and handed it to him. "Yes, sorry." And then he said, "Oh, don't be sorry." And that was how they played the game. They'd walk along, and one would say, "You have my hand", "Yes, sorry", "Oh, don't be sorry". "You have my books", "Yes, sorry", "Oh, don't be sorry". "You have my heart", "Yes, sorry", "Oh, don't be sorry." Until one night she said, "You have my consent". And he just smiled.

This makes me smile, probably because it's the kind of running joke/conversation my husband and I do.

You always leave me smiling Lou.

And you never fail to amaze me at your ability to put so much into 100 words.

A lovely look into the private world of a couple, a world no one else gets to see.
