The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 30/19

Dough/D’oh by John W. Howell © 2019

“Where did you get the dough?”

“The corner store has all kinds of fresh dough. Bread dough of every kind.”

“So you going to do some baking?”

“No. I thought I would leave it on the porch to harder and then have a doorstop.”

“Ah. Dark sarcasm in the classroom.”

“Huh?”

“You were joking right?”

“Duh. I must say you are swift today.”

“Well, I have been a little off lately.”

“Any reason?”

“I can’t put my finger on it.”

“You haven’t been yourself since you came into that dough from your grandfather.”

“Do you think that’s it?”

“You have to admit you changed the day it arrived.”

“Having dough like that is a big responsibility.”

“Come on. It wasn’t that much.”

“Yes but handled correctly it will grow. That’s the hard part.”

“I don’t see that.”

“It has to be kept warm and in a dark place.”

“Wait. We are talking about money, right?”

“No sourdough.”

“D’oh!”
