Yeah, whatever…

depression, whatever, 33 words, mother-daughter, phone call

“Mom, please come visit David and I, we’re all settled,” said Angela.

To cover her depression with encouraging, loving words, mother said, “Yeah, whatever…I mean, of course, I will, Honey.

“What’s wrong, Mom?”

Started with three words for the New Year resolution and now worked up to 33 words inspired by Trifecta . (yes, patting myself on the back, laugh-laugh) The word prompt challenge is to use  WHATEVER in the adverb definition:

3whatever adverb

—used to show that something said or done is not important

Remember: • Your response must be between 33 and 333 words 
• You must use the 3rd definition of the given word in your post
 • The word itself needs to be included in your response
 • You may not use a variation of the word; it needs to be exactly as stated above
 • Only one entry per writer
• Trifecta is open to everyone. Please join us.

      true, Marilyn, young people have embraced the word as their own and i thought it would be nice to switch roles for the story. giving back the same medicine… 🙂 happy 2014!

    I liked that the roles were reversed and the older characters was using the prompt. I, also, liked how you used the prompt to say so much about the state of the relationship between mother and child. Well done, Sun! 🙂

      i love that you noticed the reverse roles, CC…the word is often linked to the attitude displayed by young ones but often we adults find their words fit perfectly in difficult moments. thanks for sharing your kind thoughts. cheers!
