Weekend Writing Prompt- Truth Excuse

He was going to have to cancel his appointment for the second time in two weeks. Hal had had to cancel last week’s lab-testing because of an unexpected problem with his vehicle. Luckily, he had found out before the “24-hour-Cancelation” excusable deadline and wouldn’t be charged out-of-pocket for rescheduling. But this time, throughout the appointment ‘morning of,’ he’d gotten too ill to go.
He wondered how many times people had used that ‘excuse’ when it wasn’t actually true.
“Probably a lot.” Hal thought. “Darn those liars and shame on those unfair medical insurance deadlines too. Life doesn’t follow a script!”



I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.

  1. Good story, Susan.
    I cannot see the name “Hal” without this playing in my head:
    DAVE: Open the pod bay doors, Hal.
    HAL: I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.

Tell me something good...
