It’s the Little Things

“Mom! At pre-school I got to visit the Treasure Box!”

“Really, Reed? What did you get?”

“I got this ring. It’s a very special ring.”

“What so special about it?”

“Well, this ring has the power to deSTROY the WORLD!”

“Wow. That’s some ring. How does it do that?”

“It explodes the WHOLE PLANET!”

“Really. Why would you want to do that?”

“I don’t. I just like having the power.”

“I’m glad we’re safe, then. Reed, what exactly saved the world from TOTAL DESTRUCTION?”

“Chicken nuggets. I love chicken nuggets too much to destroy them.”

Lori Holden, mom of a young adult daughter and a young adult son, writes from Denver. She was honored as an Angel in Adoption® by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute.
