Weekend Writing Prompt — Paradox

“Today’s Weekend Writing Prompt from Sammi Cox is ‘paradox.’ That’s the same word I used for my one-word challenge yesterday,” I told my wife.

“That’s a paradox,” she said.

“No,” I said. “A paradox is a self-contradictory statement.”

“Okay,” she said, “Then it’s plagiarism. She copied you.”

“No, it’s just a coincidence,” I said.

“But you keep telling me you don’t believe in coincidences,” she said.

“Whatever,” I said.

    I almost posted the same story as I did for your prompt, but I used too many words. Good fun!

      When I read Sammi’s about page, she sounded like a girl.

    I noticed that too. I guess you both were struck with the same inspiration

    Oh, I hate it when my daughter uses the old “whatever” reply.

      It’s definitely a conversation ender.
