What follows is given in response to the 100 Word Challenge, reborn now under the gentle auspices of my friend, Tara Roberts, of Thin Spiral Notebook . The word this week is "Idea".
This is a stupid game, Joey.
It's what we always play, Gloria.
Well, it's stupid.
What's wrong, Gloria?
This game. The boys always win.
Uh-uh. Valerie wins, sometimes, and she's a girl.
My Mom says Valerie's a tomboy, so that doesn't count.
She is not. She's pretty and she just does stuff better, that's all.
Fine. I'm not playin'.
C'mon, Gloria. If you don't play the sides aren't even.
I don't care. I hate this stupid game. Whose idea was this, anyway?
Was too. Ask anybody.
Okay. Okay. Whose turn is it?
Good. I quit.
