This Morning’s Prompt

The morning after


My Inspired Story

We were both a little tipsy off eggnog Christmas night.

And when Laila said her only wish was to no longer be an only child, we decided to make good on that promise.

Now I’m in the CVS with a splitting headache looking for the morning after pill while my wife, having changed her mind, waits in the car.

“Christmas must have been a wild night,” the cashier says. “You’re the fourth husband here looking for the Plan B One Step.”

“So does that mean you don’t have it?”

She shakes his head. “Maybe try the CVS on Main?”

I slide the Tylenol Extra Strength across the counter. At least this trip wasn’t a total waste.

When I return to the car my wife looks up at me hopeful. I hate to disappoint her.

“Well, at least Laila will have a little brother or sister in nine months.”

But maybe next Christmas we won’t spike the eggnog.
