Role Model


Jeannie plays Candy Crush.

Dad drinks too much.

Mom works her way through every puzzle in Games magazine.

Joey’s looking for his dream girl online. Too short, swipe left. Weird nose, swipe left.

Our hamster, Peanut, runs. At least Peanut’s getting exercise.

  4. This is great. I love the narrator's matter-of-fact tone. And I love how much you tell us about this family through their actions. Nicely done! :)

    1. I can see that... "Robert's got a quick hand... Daddy works a long day." Good song. Thanks for the compliment!

  7. LOL Each of them is completely into their own thing...even the hamster running on the wheel to a destination with no end.

  8. Yup, we all have different methods of avoiding things. Or maybe they're more aptly described as coping mechanisms? Probably better to make them healthy. Peanut's the smartest one of the bunch!

    1. Thanks for your comment. Sometimes there's a fine line between coping and avoidance.

  9. Very thought-provoking. We're all going round and round in circles and getting nowhere. Things do seem that way sometimes.

  10. "Too short, swipe left. Weird nose, swipe left." So much said in those quick swipes.

  11. Loved the swiping! Think I'd rather avoid the spinning wheel, though.
