55 flash fiction friday #81: acid test


fit tab A into slot B
When you think of true relationship tests, three words come to mind: "Some Assembly Required". Nothing will tell you if you're compatible quicker than a box of parts, some badly written instructions, and a few simple tools. So when the grill was completed in 15 minutes without a harsh word, he knew. Without a doubt.

This is not fiction. This is wisdom.

I would have just messed with it to no avail for an hour and then sat down and cried.

When you spend all night Christmas eve "assembling" only to hear the child ask at daybreak upon arising from a full nights sleep,"Mommy is Santa dumb?" do you realize the magnitude of these four words.."Go ask your Dad" Who knew the stickers were supposed to go on the other way?" Can you tell I really liked this 55! Really took me back!

So true. How you do on projects together is a telling tale.
