The following story is in response to Patti Abbott's Drabble challenge.


He knew I was bringing the kids here today. Did he listen to nothing I ever said? Did he pay that little attention to us? Apparently it wasn't enough that he had to sleep around, not enough that he had to parade his whore around from bar to bar, he had to invite her up onto his S.A. Plumbing float on the town's Fourth of July parade for everybody to see. For our children to see, and their friends to question. I can't even begin to guess what he was thinking, but I certainly know what I am. Independence Day.
