Another fabulous prompt from Priceless Joy for our aspiring writers. I managed to keep it short at 110 words this week 🙂 Be sure to check all the other unique stories HERE! And, since Priceless Joy said it best:  Thank you Yinglan for the great photo prompt this week!

“Look, Mama–stripes!”

Noreen looked at the passing vehicle, it featured a large dinosaur. Trust Jenna to pick up on the stripes.

“Do you think that dinosaur is related to zebras?” Jenna asked.

Noreen subdued a sigh. Ever since seeing a Discovery channel episode on zebras, Jenna was hooked. Everything circled back to zebras these days.

“No, sweetie, dinosaurs were around long before the zebras.”

“But, the zebras could be their grandchildren, right?”

“No, dinosaurs are like birds, they lay eggs. Zebras are like us, they have babies.”

Jenna was silent as she processed this. Noreen smiled, relieved that had answered her daughter.

“Mama? I’ve been wondering….where do babies come from?”

The smile slid off Noreen’s face.

  1. Hahahaha! This is hilarious! That much dreaded question, “Where do babies come from?” I don’t think this is the right time to answer, “The stork.” LOL! Cute story!


  2. Ha! Didn’t see that coming. I love how conversations wander in unexpected ways. 🙂
