Flash Fiction #151

Car Accident

Well…. The air bags worked!


yes dear

That was like the Bouncy Castle at the State Fair. We’re lucky to be alive.

yes dear

Kiss your fishing trip with the boys, to Minnesota, goodbye. We need a new car.

yes dear

Didn’t I tell you not to drive so fast??

yes dear

Didn’t I say that it’s not a go-kart – like when you were a teenager??

yes dear

You’ve driven home this way a thousand times. Didn’t I warn you to slow down for that sharp bend??

yes dear

Hummph, husbands!! Like raising another kid!  🙄


Another dose of PURE FICTION marital relationship for the Friday Fictioneers….  Because we all know that there is not a husband alive who would drive too fast or recklessly after being carefully directed by a loving wife – and there is not a wife who would so castigate a husband for a little fender-bender like this.  😳

    I was totally reading that the other way around (wife was saying yes dear) Not sure if that was the idea or if that’s just my take! Loved it (I think my way around with the calm unaffected wife letting her husband spout off for a bit before getting on with the day 🙂
    Nicely done 😃

  4. Ha ha – that was an enjoyable read! All considered, I think he got off quite lightly. 🙂

    A delightful read. He seems to have learnt all the lessons that he needed to about ‘yes dear’. Good for him.

    My hubby often says the best thing he learned in pre-marital counseling was the phrase “Yes, dear”…it’s worked for 23 years now… just sayin’. Loved your story!
