TRIFECTA: WK 53

This week's prompt for Trifecta is dialogue. 

Everyone knows I like to talk so this should be a breeze.

:)

"I like that outfit on that mannequin."

"He’s cute, Mom."

"That’s a boy mannequin."

"I know.  I like boys."

“You do?”

“Yes.  I was just trying to find a way to tell you.”


This is not word for word how the conversation went but pretty darn close.  We were at the mall and we were talking about a mannequin.  It's hard to put such a moment into 33 words.  I did my best.  

He has a date tonight.  (My son, not the mannequin hehe)

I wasn't motivated either.  It's your post that did the trick!  Thanks.

Your son is blessed in the mother he has. And you are blessed in your sn.

I actually pictured that as a mother and daughter. Was it, because that would've been interesting? She thought her daughter was gay, but she wasn't.

If not, that's cool too.

Very well written,conveying so much in so little.

A conversation about identity, while looking at something with no personality at all. Brilliantly captured!

I love how personal you made this. It says more about you than about your son. Beautiful story.
