Six Sentence Story- Grandpa Knows Better

PROMPT WORD:  ETERNAL



“If you see two birds in the bush, shoot ’em.”

“That’s not the way the saying goes, Grandpa.”

“It’s always worked that way for me just right, Grandson, and I don’t care about your ‘proper’ educated words because dopes spring up eternally.”

“That’s “Hope springs eternal.”, Grandpa…You sound dumb.”

“Last I knew Mr. Dope, you’re the one $50,000.00 in debt for a college education that got you a job at a factory and you’re 24-years-old still living at home, so ‘actions speak louder than words’.”

“Even a broken clock is right twice a day, Grandpa…Touche’.”

  1. He said Touchè for himself, so he has some learning to do.Especially from his grandpa…the devastating effects of breaking the social connection within families/society with older people (relatives or not) will be soon evident .
    Loved your Six, Susan.

    1. Thanks, Nick. I had a close educational relationship with my grandparents. Too many kids do not have that. It’s the ‘secret sauce’ in a cohesive society. All I can do is be large influence on my own granddaughters and hope for the best. ❤

  2. Good Six.
    I defer to M. Twain
    “When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.”–Mark Twain
