And on the third day…On the third day, I was absent. Yeah, I missed the third Dog Day of Summer, and I am now a day behind.
I’ll spare you the drama for why I am late, and I will just jump right into my belated third day of our 10 day writing challenge. Once again, I hope you will sit back and enjoy my contribution to Blogdramedy’s Blog Shorts, “The Dog Days of Summer”: 10 days, 10 stories, and 110 words.
.: Don’t Mess With Mom :.
“Dinner!” She yelled.
The boys were in the living room watching Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone for the umpteenth time.
“Guys! Turn off the TV and come to the dinner table.”
“But Mom, they are about to meet Fluffy. Fluffy is this awesomely huge and mean three-headed dog. He is so cool. Can we just wait until after this part? Come see, Mom. He’s awesome.”
“No. Dinner is ready, and I want you to stop the movie and come eat.”
“Come on Mom – at least come look at Fluffy.”
“IF YOU DON’T GET IN HERE RIGHT NOW, I WILL TURN INTO FLUFFY!”
“Coming.” The two boys say in unison.
This really wasn’t a creative stretch for me. Though I’ve never physically turned into Fluffy, the potential is there for certain. Of course, me playing the role of Fluffy is similar to Pal playing to role of Lassie. Woof!
And don’t forget…

Your bark is worse than your bite. 🙂
The idea of turning into fluffy does sound scary.. haha!
There have been moments in my life where I wished I could have two extra heads to yell at my kids!
It sounds scary. 🙂 Nicely done!!
Thank you, Arindam. I just wish I could keep it up.
I bet your “mom voice” is terrifying.
You have no idea.
“Don’t mess with Mom” words to live by. 😉
And yet they don’t live by those words, Peg. What is up with that, eh? Gah.
Moms sometimes need to give the threat to a child or children to encourage their cooperation.
Kids really don’t listen, do they? You literally have to convince them not to play in traffic. And it can be infuriating. Don’t blame you for wanting to turn into Fluffy. Still feel that fluffy was a bit of a rip off of Cerberus, but won’t hold it against them too much
Don’t Mess With TX they say down here! Miss you, girl!
Amazing and Thank you… @ ^_^
kindness blossoms in your heart
