“What kind of people use one car to drag along another car?” I asked my mom.

She looked over to me, her eyes squinting in the sun, her wrinkles reaching across her round face. It was a dark face–one the sun knew well, having placed its rough touch on her long ago and never releasing it. It was a wonderful, yet harsh embrace that I was just beginning to learn.

“People much richer than us,” she said simply, and turned back to watch the spectacle.

  1. The description of the mother is beautiful

  2. Ha, good answer 🙂

    • It was the first thing I came to mind. I always think about that when I see those restoration shows. Who the heck has ten grand to spend to fix up some old junk? It’s almost always middle-aged white men.

  3. Dear JM,

    Vivid descriptions told her story.

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  4. I agree with Neil. The description of Mom is great!
    And her answer perfect.
    Welcome to our merry band of writers.

  5. Excellent. Loved that, and welcome.
