PROMPTuesday #160: It Must Have Been A Misunderstanding

Me, texting another mom: Playdate today?

 

Mom: I’m sorry. Who is this?

 

Me: Toots’ mom. You want to get together later?

 

Mom: Toots who?

 

Me: Ha ha! If you want just you and me can have a playdate. After 5.

 

Mom: I’m not sure who this is.

 

Me: San Diego Momma. Toots McLoveyBear’s mom…

 

(uncomfortable beat): Wait. Who is THIS?

 

Mom: Phil. I coach youth basketball.

 

Me: Oh yes! Thanks for your months of service to my daughter.

 

(another uncomfortable beat) I will go now.

 

Phil: Hope your ‘playdate’ works out.

 

Here’s a PROMPTuesday for you: Describe a misunderstanding. In dialogue only.
