Cracking Up


“Hi, there. Can I borrow some eggs?”

“Um. Sure, I guess. I…” Molly opened the door wider. The woman on her front porch stood a solid foot taller than Molly, who took a step back. “Um…how many do you need?”

“Whatever you’ve got,” she smiled and held her hand out. “I’m Louisa. Just moved in next door. I haven’t even unpacked the truck yet and that one,” she jerked her head toward the house across the street, “already complained about my lawn, insulted my garden, and yelled at my dog. I’m egging her house.”

Molly grinned. “Please, come in.”

    • Thanks, Anne. “Trademark nastiness…” I kinda like that. Perhaps I shouldn’t, but I do. 🙂
      Yes, The Reef. It’s going to be a fun place to frolic. I’ve got a little more freedom here to play. I’m glad you like it.
