G is for Gives

“Glad you came over.  This week’s been pretty frantic, what with all the excitement round here.  Had to do a lot of cleaning.  Sometimes, I wonder if it’s worth it to clean.  Look at all this stuff.  So, I decided to have a giveaway.  This is all stuff I bought, intending to use someday.”

“We could help you set it up.  Only problem is when you want to have it.  See, there’s a couple dinners and a house gifting this week.”

“I don’t think I’ll do it formally.  Just tell everyone to come over and get whatever they want.  I put most everything out on the porch already.”

“It does look a bit bare in here.  What’s going on?”

“Oh, nothing.  I just got tired of looking at the same old stuff.  Even with rearranging it.  I don’t know why I bought half this stuff.  The rest is in boxes ready for the sale next month.”

“Best be careful.  Once a space is used to something in it, it’ll fill up.”

“Sheesh.  Where’d you hear that from?”

“I was thinking about it one day.  I had a perfectly bare cupboard and it filled up without me even knowing it.  Found a bunch of stuff I didn’t even know I had.  That’s how I know it’ll fill up again.”

“Criminy, that’s just, I don’t know where you get these ideas.  Space will fill up.”

“Quit laughing.  It’s better than the hare brained ideas you come up with.”

“Ookay.  Hey, wait a minute.  You might be onto something.  Look at this.  I was sure I left that over to Patty’s the other night.”

“What the heck’s in that thing anyways?”

“Well, Patty says this is what she came to get.”

“Was it there when you guys went over?”

“No.  It wasn’t anywhere on the porch or in her house.”

“Someone’s messing with you guys.  A ghost?  Did they ever find out who was in the hall?  I think you should just have a formal giveaway.”

“Well that’s sounds like a good idea.  Still, hauling all this stuff is going to be.”

“We’ll only need a couple cars and the boys can help us.  They just play around in that garage of theirs.”
“I guess.  I’ll leave that part to you.  I’d better call Patty to come over.”


  1. Hello, Mildred! Great dialogue here and nice scene!

    Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

  3. I love that it's all dialogue. Only the characters are speaking, but there's such a strong image to be taken away from the scene!

  4. Hi, just stopping by from the A to Z. Have you dropped off the radar?
