For Vivian Kirkfield's 50 Precious Words Writing Challenge

Brother Bob

Brad was six; he wanted to be a twin. BUT, Brad was an only child. So, he imagined a brother, Bob. Brad talked to Bob and told him how much he wished he could see him. Then one day, Brad stepped in front of a full-length mirror and…found Bob!

50 words exactly, excluding the title.

  1. Ha! Thank you! It is definitely hard to tell a whole story in 50 words.

  2. Definitely hard, Murphyrhymer (wish I knew your name)...but you really got me thinking with this one...many kids do want a sibling. I was a bit confused...in the last line you say 'Bob stepped in front of the mirror and met Bob'...did you mean to write Brad stepped in front of the mirror and found Bob? Just wondering. ;) So glad you played along with your #50PreciousWords.

    1. Yes! Oops. I did mean Brad stepped in front of the mirror and saw Bob. Sorry for the confusion. And when I read your post the first time I misunderstood what you were saying. Then, I reread my entry and saw I mixed up the names.

      Thanks for the heads up!

  5. I used to love talking to my "friend" in the mirror. (does that make me weird or just a writer?) Thanks for the cool story.

  6. I am hoping that is something a child could do. It makes sense to me. Ha ha. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Fun idea. Animals do, why not kids?
