Sixty-two words…

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Ultimatum which we have to use along with sixty-one others!

“What’s up?”  his sister asked.

“We had to write a story using this stupid word”.  ‘Ultimatum’ was scribbled on a scrunched-up scrap of paper.


“I wrote about a robot”.

“That’s an automaton” she giggled!

“So, what’s it mean then?  I’ve gotta  write it again or get detention”

That’s an ultimatum” chuckled his sister!

    Hi Keith – oh yes … understanding ‘words’ … I’d quite like an ultimatum for the rain at the moment! Cheers Hilary

    This was delightful and realistic … 😉 Loved the exchange! (and I always get a chuckle out of homophones or close-homomphones and how children often mistake them …. 🙂

    Heeheehee! There’s his story right there. Of course, if he gets caught plagiarizing from you, i’ll bet that’s detention worthy as well.
