Reader's Digest Reject #5

It's been a while; long overdue in fact.

Boys and girls it's that time again. Time once more for (drum roll please) "Ta da" READER'S DIGEST REJECTS.

During a family reunion, a group of adults was clustered around; talking. My eight-year-old nephew was excitedly and very loudly trying to add to the conversation. My husband Rod turns to him and in a soft voice says, "Johnny lower your voice," gesturing in a downward motion with his hand.

Rod returns his attention to the group and we resume talking. So does Johnny, in a voice just as lout and excited, he says, "Is this better uncle Rod?"

We all turn to see Johnny sitting on the floor as he speaks.

Rules: word count must be 100 or less and story must be true
Words: 92
Only the name of my nephew has been changed (to protect the not so innocent anymore and much older now) otherwise this story is totally true.

If you liked this check out #1 through #4 by clicking on the label reader's digest to the right.
