Dear Readers! Welcome to the weekly Trifecta Writing Challenge post. This week the good editors have decided to switch it up a little and are asking for a 99-word story The word this week also our own choice. I’m choosing the first definition of the word BABY which is: a very young child or infant.
The Frustrations of Communicating with One’s Baby
“I need your advice, Roger.” I remarked to my three-month-old baby, Roger.
“Wait until I’m through drooling.” Roger replied evenly.
“I’m hiring a babysitter.”
“Nancy, listen . . . “
“Don’t call me Nancy, Roger. Call me mother, Roger, remember?”
“You mean you want me to call you Mother Roger Remember, mother?”
“Oh Roger! Your linguistics are appalling!”
“Perhaps, but no babysitter, huh? I’ll just nap.”
“I’m acquiescing but reluctantly, Roger.”
“Oh and bring home a rattle, Nancy.”
“You mean bring home a rattle, mother, Roger!”
“Fine! Bring home a rattle mother roger too, if you must then, Nancy.”
Until next time . . . I love you
