A 50-Word Story a Day Keeps the Boredom Away #68

Women in Love

Teenage Maisie summoned her parents to the kitchen for a serious discussion.

‘You want to marry, don’t you?’ asked mother, and then she sighed.

‘Worse,’ father said, ‘she’s probably pregnant…’

Maisie shook her head.

‘Mother, father, I… I like girls more than boys.’

Her parents sighed relieved. They were liberals.

      1. Yes, she’s very happy. Her 13-year-old daughter recently confessed to her that she was gay, when she was thinking she’d been thinking she was pregnant. So, yeah, relieved and very happy!

      1. Very accurate response, Vinc ;). But actually I don’t think parents can force their children to sex with the opposite gender, so gay is gay no matter if his/hers parents accept it or not. They won’t populate the world.

    1. Dear aunt, if I were you I would not sit calmly on the beach looking at only-you-know-what… What if a great wave will wash over you?

      Will you leave your faraway nephew auntless?

  1. It would be interesting if everybody could talk to the family about everything and receive a positive reaction back… They don’t need accept, but could respect, at least. I know a guy who would spank his sister if he had heard that from her.

        1. Sometimes, Julie, three more words need to be added to forty-seven that have been already written, to make fifty… and rather that adding adverbs or adjectives…

    1. Exceedingly well!

      Though there’s plenty of writing that needs to be done.

      96,000 words right now.

      I must cut at least 16,000… Don’t know how I will do it though. 😦

  2. The twist would have been greater without that pic 🙂
    But I respect for what I see on the top right side -/I donate $1 to charity for each new follower!/
    God bless U

  3. I have two daughters and I would love them to come to me with this conversation! It would keep them away from men like me. And I’m a Republican, by the way – toleration is not merely a liberal virtue.
