Short for 3WW






***

Cajole. Sara disliked that word. The implication was that she could be cozied into performing chores for the penurious recluse without losing her temper. No. She didn't like it at all. But that didn't bother him.

Thanks to ThomG for posting cajole, recluse, temper for Three Word Wednesday. Thanks, too, for an energetic and growing meme...

Nice micro fiction piece!

Michelle said...

Why is it that one strives to cajole another yet seldom succeeds in achieving the desired result regardless of the amount of cozy-ing involved? :)
