“But Mom, it’s …”

“You’ll get that butt into your room RIGHT NOW!”

“Mom? It’s really gonna…”

“If  you MOM! me one more time and don’t get moving, I might do something I’ll regret! Now Move!”

“Yes Ma’am”

  1. Jen, your ending took a sharp turn to the right, and I lost control and had to find my way back all alone.

    You are really enjoying your writing, and it shows. I am working on a sequel to your “The Man Across the Street” with my version of “The Lady Across the Street.” I will have to give you credit for allowing me to pursue this. More to come soon.
