What’s Your Sign?: Gargleblaster #167

She clutches the letter to her breast, and hurries back up the walk. The envelope, dropped and forgotten, blows down the lane, lodging against the signpost in Mrs. Carmichael’s yard.

“Mom?” she calls.

Her mother turns, a lock of hair tumbles free.

I’m just along for the ride this week but I somehow managed to snag the “Hitchhiker’s Prize”  How cool is that?

  1. I really like this post. I love the picture it paints. Actually, I really enjoyed not knowing much of the story – it leaves me the ability to imagine my own story. Very well done!

  2. I’m trying to imagine what this would be like without the seemingly irrelevant lock of hair and I just can’t. That added so much visual texture.

  3. I, too, am trying to imagine what was in the letter and how the loose lock of hair relates. Is it a sign that the mother is implicated in the contents of the letter and a bit undone when she guesses why her daughter is calling her? Lovely picture you paint, especially with the envelope.

  4. I pictured a diagnosis of cancer in the letter, hence the mother losing her hair, etc. A shocking diagnosis in the letter and the daughter’s just discovering it.

  5. I imagined she walked in on her mom having an affair. But what really stirs the imagination is, as Saroful commented, that lock of hair. Wonderful.
