Fifty Word Wednesday: Where did you say babies come from?

CoCo’s new baby

I started a personal challenge to write a story that is exactly 50 words! Thank you, Boy with a Hat. Not that he set up a formal challenge, but it was his idea. And his writing is worth checking out. So please click the link and find out what he’s up to. If you want to begin at my beginning, click here or search in the side panel with the words, “fifty word.”

This week, I jumped on Lady Jabberwocky’s bandwagon with her prompt of the week, “Pumpkin Patch.”

I thank my good friend, Diane, for suggesting I set up a formal Challenge. Almost everything she writes makes me smile. (Except when she makes me cry.) Check out her blog at “On the Border.”

“Are you sure we’ll find one here?” Betty side-eyed Denny.

“Dad said in a pumpkin patch.”Denny silenced her with confidence.

“My grandpa said under a cabbage leaf.” Jimmy argued.

The trio tiptoed, turning over leaves, until…

“A kitten!”

“Maybe Dad got confused on what kind of baby,” offered Denny.

Wednesdays are super-fun and challenging because paring down to exactly 50 words is really hard.

I never know what’s going to flow directly from my brain to my fingertips and onto the virtual page. This week’s inspiration gave me a particular bit of joy.

I love finding out what you think.
