“I made a bad joke once,” Tom said. “I said pregnant women looked like they were carrying tires around their waists.” He hung his head. “So whenever we talked about having children, Sarah reminded me she’d look like a tire.” Tom paused to let the low laugh of the funeral crowd float up the rafters. “So when she did get pregnant, she set up dinner in the alley by the pile of tires to tell me we were going to be parents. She always knew what to do.” Tom’s voice cracked. The preacher walked over and embraced the weeping widower.
100 words. Fiction. Feedback is always appreciated. Comments of any kind really — so long as they are related to the post. What story comes to mind when you see that picture? Join in!
