If I came with a warning label, people may not like me much.
My secrets and sins would be disclosed. And that’s not good.
If a warning label would be attached to every person, then everyone would know about their secrets and sins. And get mad, and get hurt, and get away.

I go about life being true to myself, being honest when I fell like, and sometimes false, pretending to be someone else.
And I’m ok with this. And people are ok with this too, because that’s what they do.

She couldn’t have asked for a better team!

The next day, after blowing up the candles, he closed his eyes and died.
We were doing a paint project outside when daddy came to pick the kids up for the weekend.
He looked uptight, she was all dressy.
I was covered in paint, tangled hair.
She had a frown and seemed uncomfortable on her stilettos early in the morning.
I had a big smiling face.
This post was written in response to the Six on the Sixth Prompt – March 2016, hosted by Adam Ickes. The idea is to write 6 6-word stories. He provides us with 6 prompt words that we can use on our stories or not. The words this month were MIND | FLASH | ENTER | BONGO | CARPET | SWEPT, and I chose to use them.
