Daily Prompt: Regrets


Standing in line at the grocery store, I noticed a young Mum pull up behind me with an inquisitive preschooler in tow. “Why are those cookies there?” he asked. “How long is this going to take,” he wondered aloud. The young Mum looked at her son with love and patience and sighed, “I regret not taking Grandma up on her offer to babysit today.”

The young man turned to me and asked, “do you regret too?”

“Yes,” I replied. “I regret not meeting you sooner. You’re obviously a fabulous young man.”


“Of course!” I remarked, “and I have to ask you a question.”


“Why is 6 afraid of 7?” I asked him, completely serious.

“I don’t know. Why?”

“Because 7 ate 9!”

My groceries were finished, it was time for me to go. But no day is a waste if you get to tell a silly joke!
