Saturday Centaur – 2 peas in a pod!

Another 100 word challenge, I love these! This one is hosted on blogspot, and I know there are sometimes difficulties cross posting comments, but I thought I’d give it a try anyway, and we’ll see what happens. If you want to participate, go to Jenny Matlock’s blog and check it out – just click on the image:

The prompt is “two peas in a pod

Allowed, 100 words, plus the 5 from the prompt.

My entry, 105 words.

*************************

Emily and Erin were identical twins. Emily liked being a twin. Erin wasn’t so sure. Today was their fifth birthday, and they both got the same dolly. Emily loved it. Erin didn’t.

And just like every birthday, gramma said, “You are two peas in a pod.”

Enough. Erin had to know. “What’s a pod?”

“Oh it’s just an expression.” Gramma said. She stood and took the cake plates to the kitchen..

Erin asked Emily, “What’s a ‘spreshun”.

Emily shrugged and kept playing with her new dolly.

Erin pouted. Emily might not care, but Erin didn’t like not knowing things.

And she was Not a pee!

**************************

It was fun to do, thank you Jenny!

  1. This was the sweetest and most a-PEA-lling use of this prompt.

    I love how you perfectly captured the simplistic way children think and talk!

    I really like the way you write!

  3. Part of my comment just disappeared! It should read like this:

    Good rendering of how very young children have trouble with symbols, expressions and abstract-thinking.
    This lovely prompt is open to so many different solutions. I went with the twins-theme too!

    Best wishes,
