This week the prompt is: “Her crumpled up list of resolutions…”
She sat with a thoughtful expression on her face as she wrote in her notebook. He looked at her and knew he couldn’t live the lie another year. “I’m leaving you.” he blurted out that New Year’s Eve.
She didn’t say a word, just ripped out the page from her notebook, tossed it in the garbage and walked out of the room. Puzzled, he walked over and picked her crumpled up list of resolutions from the wastebasket. She just had one resolution but it took up the entire page describing how she would achieve her goal of being a perfect wife.
