Drabble: Triple Dose of Moping

My response to the prompt mope.

Genre: slice of life, general, family


~Triple Dose of Moping~

Her son moped in the corner of the sofa, her daughter moped at the foot of the stairs, her husband moped at the table.

She was only gone for two days. What happened?

All three gave the same response.

“We dropped your macaroons.”

“I’ll make another batch. Help me and it’ll be done sooner.”

They jumped to their feet and rushed into the kitchen.

It was only macaroons, but if it made them happy, she could put off her rest a for bit.
