A story based on the prompt: Fandango’s Provocative Question #181-
How are you doing? Seriously, are you okay? Feeling good? Just okay? Not so great? Why do you think you’re feeling the way you are?
How am I today?
I think I am a little happier then I was the day before yesterday
and a lot less happy then I was this morning.
Thank you for asking.
How I am doing today?
I guess I’m okay, today I got a letter from a friend
I haven’t heard from in ages, it was a real letter handwritten in Ink
I know weird right?
Things are okay
I was going to grow an herb garden on my deck
but I put it off till next year
because I can’t imagine watching things grow,
sad to say all I see from my windows are things doing the exact opposite of growing.
I’m glad you called, everyone has moved on or moved away- the Covid Migration, you
So I was feeling a little worn out and tired
but at least there are fun movies on tv to watch
and I have some new books to read and I have to decide- Victoria or New Orleans next
What was that?
It’s me- wait what?
Oh. Yeah. I see. Wrong number. You were trying to call who?
Oh yeah. I know her too. She’s nice. Tell her I sai-
No really.That’s okay. It was nice to hear from you. Have a go-
Hello? Are you there?
Were you there?
