My boyfriend always makes fun of me for telling very short stories about things I’ve done. One time I protested that they were slice of life stories, and his response was that they were slice of slice of slice of slice of life stories. I’ve decided to start calling them crumbs of life stories. To be fair, “stories” might be too strong of a word. These are the types of things you tell a friend or family member or significant other about what you’ve been up to since you last talked. Here’s some examples.
I gave a carrot slice to the hamster, and he did nibbles, and I gave some to the ratties and the gerbils, but the gerbils didn’t like them as much, and then I ate the rest of the carrot.
I went to the zoo and I saw a little baby bunny when we stopped to eat Dippin’ Dots.
We used to have a golden retriever, but she got hit by a car and died.
I ate a doughnut for lunch.
There are many more but I can’t think of any offhand. What are some of yours?
