Today’s prompt was to write one side of a conversation. I thought about writing letters, but you wouldn’t see all the letters, just the letters on one person. I recently read a collection of Vincent van Gogh’s letters. Most of the letters were to his brother, Theo. Theo’s replies are not in the collection. No replies are. So, often you’re left wondering exactly what was it someone else wrote. But a story of letter would take a long time, and that isn’t ideal for Story-a-Day May.
I considered writing half a phone conversation (like the Bob Newhart sketch that is linked to on Story-a-Day’s site). But I couldn’t think of anything.
This is that time of Story-a-Day when ideas hide or show themselves only to shrivel up and die. So, keeping that in mind, here is my half a dialogue. Thanks for sticking with me!
After an argument on Facebook when one of the participants deletes his comments.
