Truth in an Old Wives' Tale #sol19

After a six weeks break, I am exercising my writing muscles again and taking part in the Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life Story Challenge.  

My college graduated son comes down the stairs, running his hair though his mussed-up hair and announces, "I think I have a stye in my eye for the first time in a long time."

I smile, grateful to have him home for the weekend, and tease, "Have you been peeing in the road?"

He avoids my gaze, walks into the kitchen, and stifles a giggle.


  1. I have never heard of that wives tale. LOL! That's hilarious! Congratulations to the graduate!!

  2. I've never heard that tale before, but it does bring a giggle! What a fun interaction with your son.

  3. Lol! Small moments like that with your kiddos are priceless. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  4. Small funny slice. This saying is new to me.

  5. I have nominated you for a Sunshine Blogger Award!
