All Stitched Up SOL14 #7

March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers
Join us for a month of writing!


“We need to do it tonight.”

“Ok or maybe tomorrow.”
“NO tonight the doctor said ten days.” “Where are your sewing scissors?”
“Why my sewing scissors? You’ll dull them.”
“Well I don’t have anything else.”
“Ugh fine.”
“Here you hold him down I’ll cut them.”
“Fine.”
Hand poised. No move to cut.
“Here comes Hadley she can help.”
We wait. “Come and help Hadley, hold that end.”
“Are you sure they’re ready?”
Scowl.
Raised eyebrows. Back to holding my end.
Hand poised once again, not moving.
“Give them to me,” switching spots.
Snip, snip, snip, pull, pull, pull.
“Ewwww” From Hadley’s end, “they’re not ready.”
“It’s just a little spot.”
“Oh no, maybe they weren’t ready, should I call the doctor?”
Really? Now? (not out loud).
“It’s fine he will heal.”
Nick jumps up and bounces around the room, all 100 pounds of chocolate lab of him; happy to be free of his stiches, and Donnie’s stich removing expertise.

  1. I had NO IDEA you were writing about a dog until I got to the end. I loved the dialogue and your short non-dialogue sentences. Great post!
