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.
