Driving while parenting, again

The Prius swerves into a parking lot one cold and rainy afternoon, causing a distressing amount of rattling in the back seat.

Mommyo, anxiously: “The Six-Year-Old, are you alright?”

The Six-Year-Old, calmly: “Yes, I was trying to hang on to my lower jaw, but you turned too fast so I dropped it.”

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
