Flash Fiction Challenge: Desperation

original card is heredesperation

I call it: Quiet Time

"Are we there yet?" "Not yet sweetie." "But moooom." "What is it sweetie?" "My finger hurts." "Did you put it on your brother's mouth again sweet-" "Are we there NOW?" Sigh. "Not yet sweetie." There is a two truck trying to merge. Poorly. Several seconds of blissfully uninterrupted top 500 hits playing on the radio before- "Moooooom." "What is it sweetie?" ""I have to go." "You just went." "Are we there yet." Close to tears. "Please stop asking me that sweetie." Tow truck's right blinker is on, and he is clearly trying to enter the left lane. A moment of contemplation. "Where are we?" "We're near Hartford, Connecticut." "How much longer?" "About an hour sweetie." Less than a minute paases before: "Has it been an hour yet?" Groan. "No sweetie. I'll tell you, okay? Please just relax." A second of consideration. "Mooooom?" Mom can feel a vein bulging in her forehead as tow truck cuts her off. "What." "Do we have any snacks?"

Actual feminist. Awkward explorer. Professional fangirl. Definitely always hungry.
