Tent meeting

“Have you given any more thought to joining Grams and me at the tent meeting this week? It’d mean so much to her.”

Ma, you know how I feel about revivals. All the threats of hellfire and damnation are just too much. It’s too confusing. Faith is very straightforward and simple.

“That fancy, schmancy community college of yours is putting all sorts of heathen thoughts into your head.”

I think I’m old enough to make my own decisions about my beliefs, and what’s best for me.

“So, Miss Know-It-All what religion have you picked? Buddhism, Hinduism? What?”


The 100 Word Challenge, a writing prompt created by Velvet Verbosity, takes a single theme to tell a story in only 100 words ~ no more, no less. This week’s theme is ‘Perfectionism.’

  1. I like this piece a lot. Let’s hope perfectionism doesn’t become a major, organized religion, though. That could be very dangerous ;-). Great job with the prompt.
