Ephemeral IV

Leftovers can lead to confusion

Ephemeral - Being a series of short stories that allows the reader to look in on the day to day interactions of a fictional couple.

Flitting in tone from absurd to funny and at times even to poignant, the exchanges featured in each chapter are a fond look at the ephemeral nature of life, love and communication. They are also a very affectionate look on the part of the author at the love her characters have for one another.

As noon approached the question was asked:

"What's to be had for lunch?"

"There should be some soup from the other day."

"Really? I forgot about that! But... not much of it is left."

"That's all right, I don't want any. Why don't you have the rest of the spinach with it?"

"No thanks... wait, what about this? Can I have it as well?"

"I just offered you that and you said you didn't want it!"

"No, you suggested the leftover broccoli, but that wouldn't be good in the soup. You didn't say anything about spinach."

"Excuse me, I did say there was spinach and never mentioned broccoli at all."

"Oh. I suppose you did, but... "

"How can you confuse the two?"

"Well... they are both green!”
