Death Throes


That Jenny Matlock is full of surprises this morning. The words she has given us are "The End," and we're only allowed 25 more to reach ours. Yikes!

Here goes, my friends. The prompt, as always, is in red.

Death Throes
©2011 Susan Noyes Anderson

“We’re through.”

“Whaddya mean, through?”

“Over.”

“Over?”

“Yeah, over. Kaput. Finis.”

“Finis?”

“Absolument finis.”

“What, you’re French now?”

“Not French. Frustrated. Fed-up. Done.”

“Wha'? Wassup?”

The End.”

How great is this for your weekly write with Jenny.
I love it.
Thanks for coming by just now I was trying to get over and here today and to your moms also. loI In answer to your question about implants. I think what they are doing is a implant because she told me it would take months for the things they put in my gums to be attached not sure really. I have a lot of questions to ask her when I go back for the temporary bridge.
I tell you Sue if it is not one thing it is another. lol
Love ya
Maggie
