The Collection: Oh My!

This week’s prompt at Carrot Ranch, which was set by Charli Mills, was as follows:

November 21, 2022, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story using the phrase, “Oh, my.” It can be used in storytelling or dialog. What is the cause for such a response? Have fun with this one! Go where the prompt leads!

This pedometer geek writer wrote the following story:

Oh My! A Lesson

 Marie and I sat together during lectures in classes including pharmacology. We were friends, we lived just down the hall in the same dorm.

Not only did we sit together, but we were also lab partners in pharmacology. We were getting ready for our final, which included knowing a whole list of terms and their definitions. We were quizzing each other, and I kept stumbling on some of them, two of which were the terms for dilated pupils and constricted pupils.

 Marie, outrageously acting them out, said, “Oh, my! Mydriasis, dilated. Tiny, miosis, constricted.” I never forgot them again.

~Nancy Brady, 2022

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

  3. Sorry about that, JP. I had to learn the Kreb’s cycle for Biochemistry I. After that, I got Harry Lorayne’s/Jerry Lucas’ book on memory as it was so helpful (the same person who taught me the Kreb’s cycle in about ten minutes recommended it to me).
