Ragtag Daily Prompt: Six

Three plus…

“How many children would you like to have?” Asked GarGar.

“I don’t know.” Replied Princess Pirouette tersely.

As both GarGar and Pirouette were only children, the both had an inherit desire to spare their children the loneliness that was endemic with being the one and only. In her mind’s eye, Pirouette usually saw herself with a husband and two children, a boy and a girl, while GarGar imagined a home bursting with kids.

“Do you think six is a good number?” Responded GarGar innocently.

“Six! You want me to endure six pregnancies?” Pirouette couldn’t suppress her laughter. “Do you think it’s just a walk in the park to have a child?”

Three makes six!

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.

    1. Thank you so much. Only Garçon and Pirouette are siblings. The other two, Max and Nigel are significantly older. Max is at least 16 and Nigel at least 12 years of age. The babies are barely 2 years old. 😺
