THIS IS A 100 WORDS CONTEST ENTRY

By Definition: Unscrupulous

BR 100 Word Contest


When my mother said it, she was not angry. She was not being sarcastic or ironic or any other kind of –ic thing. She was simply making a statement of fact: my boyfriend thinks you’re a whore.

This gets delivered two weeks before Mom finds out the boyfriend has been sleeping with Aunty Karin, Mom’s best friend. Cliché, I know, but the truth nonetheless.

Speaking of which, after I found out, I knocked on the ex-boyfriend’s door, turned to page 1,430 of my dictionary, pointed to the third definition of the word whore, and never, ever looked back.
